Product Overview

Nestled between the Alps and the river Po in northwest Italy, Turin was hailed by Le Corbusier as the most beautifully-set city he'd ever seen. A Civilized Traveller's Guide to Turin is a passionate and selective guide to the city, one willing to assume its reader is as interested in Turin's illustrious history and culture as in its abundant food shops and museums.
A city of more than a million people, Turin has a historic center that merges the Baroque and the Art Nouveau. The first capital of a united Italy, it is where Italo Calvino, Primo Levi and Cesare Pavese lived and wrote; and where partisan resistance overcame Fascist control and German occupation in the Second World War. Today Turin is as delightful a place to visit as more renowned (and more crowded) destinations in Italy.
The guidebook includes such features as unique walking tours, a section on literary Turin, recommended day trips, ideas on what to do with kids, and recommendations of restaurants, shops, parks, etc, based on the author's personal experience.
