Full description
Visit the historic center of Turin while strolling through its majestic plazas. Starting from Piazza Castello, the ancient seat of royal power, you will walk through the sumptuous Galleria Subalpina and reach two locations closely associated with the Italian Risorgimento. These locations are Piazza Carlo Alberto and Piazza Carignano, which sits just next to the most important museum of the Risorgimento in Italy. Heading towards Salotto di Torino and moving along the ancient Via Nuova, now Via Roma, you will return to the ancient Collegio dei Nobili for a jump back in time of at least 5,000 years. This experience will allow you to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of one of the most important civilizations in history: Ancient Egypt. Travel back in time and relive the splendor, luxuries, and daily life of the pharaohs and queens of Ancient Egypt. The Egyptian Museum of Turin is the world's first Egyptian Museum, and is second in importance only to the Cairo Museum. It houses about 300,000 finds, 26,000 of which are kept in warehouses for scientific research. Mummies, papyri, and funerary finds of the great pharaohs make it an unmissable location for anyone visiting the city of Turin. The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities was founded in 1824 when King Carlo Felice purchased a large collection of Egyptian antiquities. From statues, sarcophagi, and mummies, to papyri, bronzes, amulets and everyday objects, the exhibit was initially put together by Egyptologist Vitaliano Donati and later expanded by Bernardino Drovetti, Consul General of France in Egypt. Thanks to excavations conducted in Egypt in the late 19th century and in the 1930s, the collection continued to expand until reaching its extraordinary grandeur of today.
