The main attractions in the city are the Duomo of Turin, the Porta Palatina, the Mole Antonelliana and the Museo dell'Automobile:

1. The Duomo of Turin.

2. The Porta Palatina is a 1st century building with a statue of Caesar Augustus in front. There are remnants of the Roman era in other parts of the city but fewer than can be found in other parts of Italy because it was one of the last areas of current Italy to become part of the Roman Empire, being annexed around the time of the Caesar Augustus.

3. The Mole Antonelliana, was, for a brief period, the tallest building in the world, with a unique spire that reached a height of 167 meters (548 feet). It is now an exhibit hall and a great place to view the city of Turin and the beauty of the Alps in the distance.  The 19th-century citizens of Turin adorned their city's skyline with a striking landmark that rises high above the rest of the buildings.

4. The museo dell'Automobile is a tribute the century-old Italian automobile industry that developed in Turin. It houses a lot of great Italian cars like Maseratis, Ferraris, and Fiats. There are Bugattis and Lancias, the first car driven in Italy and the first Fiat. In the museum's library, you can learn more about the design and development of Italian cars.
