Overlooked by the stunning Alps, which are visible from many points around the city, Turin is in the north of Italy and was the original capital of the country. With museums ranging from Egyptian artefacts to cinema history and memorabilia, the city has much to occupy visitors of all interests. It is site of the original Eataly brand of restaurants and food halls and, as with most Italian cities, food plays an important role in every day life.
The football scene is dominated by the mighty Juventus with 35 Serie A titles, 2 European Cups / Champions leagues and 3 UEFA Cups. Having recently signed Cristiano Ronaldo, their profile has increased further on the European and world stage. The best days of city rivals Torino are firmly behind them with just one league title and two Coppa Italias in the past fifty years.
