Hotels in Turin
The province of Turin is located in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. In the heavily mountainous north, it borders France. Within the province there is one of the oldest Italian Natural Parks, the Gran Paradiso Natural Park and tourists are attracted to the park for its spectacular views of the landscape and the wildlife. While natural beauty abounds in this province, the area is also rich in artistic and historical monuments. In the Orco Valley, for example, there is the Sacro Monte di Bellmonte, one of the many chapel complexes depicting religious messages all throughout the regions of Piedmont and Lombardy; this Sacro Monte is dedicated to the mysteries of the Rosary and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The capital city of the province, also called Turin, is also worth a visit. Turin attractions include the Mole Antonelliana, a large building made completely out of stones which has become the symbol of the city, the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of San Giovanni Battista, built in the 15th century and famous for housing the Shroud of Turin. If youre looking for some intense history and culture for a weekend, Turin could be the perfect place.
