Bridge Vittorio Emanuele I - Po river at dawn
Turin

A morning view of Po river from the bridge Vittorio Emanuele I.

Built by Napoleon in 1813, it was the first Turin bridge entirely made of stone.

The view goes from Piazza Vittorio Veneto to Borgo Po with the Gran Madre church, then up to Monte dei Cappuccini and back to the Murazzi. 

Far away over the hill, the unmistakable shape of Superga Basilica.

More About Turin

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
