The inside story

There is no need to go to Egypt to relive the ancestral and magical charm of ancient Pharaohs' civilization. That of Turin is the oldest Egyptian museum in the world and the most important after that of Cairo. It all began in 1800 when Bernardino Drovetti from Piedmont, consul of France during the occupation of Egypt, collected over 8,000 artifacts such as statues, mummies, sarcophagi, papyrus, jewelry and amulets. In 1824 the Savoy king Carlo Felice bought this collection and so the Egyptian Museum of Turin was born.

The recent renovation has made the museum even more visitor-friendly. Entrance tickets go like hot cakes: this is one of the most visited sites in Italy. Moreover, its 300,000 artifacts (some kept in the warehouse of the museum) deserve to be admired. Booking a guided tour will help you avoid long lines at the entrance and delve into the history of an ancient and fascinating civilization.
