Turin is the first city in the list of 5 italian cities to visit at least once in your lifetime.

Here are my tips on what to do in Turin in summer.

MUSEO EGIZIO (Egyptian Museum)

Founded in 1824 and considered the most important Egyptian museum after the Museum of Cairo in Egypt.
In 2015 it was inaugurated after a long restoration and now has become a museum to visit many times.
So, if you have already been there you must come back to discover new itineraries, and if you haven’t visited it yet you must go there to admire the statues of Ramesses II, Amenophis II, Tuthmosi III and the huge statue of Seti II.

Located inside the Mole Antonelliana tower, this museum will surprise you for the abundance of documents, and you’ll learn how the seventh art was born and has developed.
In the center of the building there’s also a panoramic lift to go up to the top of the Mole to admire the city and the beautiful surrounding landscape.

The itinerary going through the Parco del Valentino (Valentino Park), but I also suggest that you lose yourself in the streets of the city to find out its hidden corners.
