CAR MUSEUM in Turin, Italy
Turin is considered the automobile capital of Italy and it is home to the beloved FIAT. In fact, FIAT stands for “Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino” or the Italian Automobile Factory of Turin.
The Car Museum in Turin, Italy is incredibly interesting and fun to visit, even if you aren’t a car fanatic, you can easily spend a few hours there. The museum is housed in an interesting building where you start at the top floor, making your way down and through the history of the car. There are over 170 cars to view, set in interesting scenes and full of information. My favorite section was the Formula 1 racers with a very creative video series in the background.
The Car Museum in Turin is a definite must!
