TURIN's renovated city centre is full of gracious Baroque avenues and squares, opulent palaces as well as spanking-new pedestrian-only areas – a pleasant surprise to those who might have been expecting satanic factories and little else. Ever since the major spruce-up for the 2006 Winter Olympics, Turin's emphasis has been on promoting its historic urban charms, such as its genteel belle époque cafés and traditional chocolate treats – not to mention an array of walking tours that explore the city's extraordinary, vivid heritage.
