Can you sum up Turin? Turin is a highly populated city in northwest Italy surrounded by the Alps. It has a rich culture and history; you can drive down the large avenues and walk between the very narrow alleys. Here you can see magnificent buildings erected in centuries past alongside the most modern architecture.
