Views from Torino

These are a few views from around the city of Torino. The first one is a view of the Basilica di Superga which sits on a hill overlooking the city. The photo was taken from a street in the Vanchiglia neighborhood of Torino.

Here is the Borgo Medievale, an imitation medieval village that was built in the 1800s and is located in the Valentino Park in Torino. It’s very interesting to walk through it and try to imagine how life was in a town like that in the middle ages. You can enter through a drawbridge and it’s free to enter, but the castle museum in the back has an admission fee.

I took this photo in front of Piazza Castello one day when I liked the effect of the sunlight on the buildings. The narrow entrance you can see between the buildings in the distance is the beginning of Via Po, which leads down to the Po River. The tower in the back is the top of the Mole Antonelliana, the famous landmark of Torino and home to the Cinema Museum.
