Egyptian Museum
Located inside the Accademia delle Scienze, one of Italy's most elegant baroque buildings, the Egyptian Museum is second only to the Cairo museum for its variety and completeness (30,000 items in exhibits), thanks to the dig made by Ernesto Schiapparelli in the early 1900s.

National Museum of Cinema
city of Torino, conceived in 1862 by the Architect Antonelli as a synagogue.

TOUR n°3

Euro: 70,00/person (includes bus ride, guide, boat rides, admission tickets and lunch)

Lake Maggiore (or Verbano) is a lake basin of North-Eastern Piedmont which borders with Lombardy and Switzerland, it is the second largest among the Italian lakes after Lake Garda. Sheltered by the Alpine ring, it occupies a valley gully probably of tectonic origin. The Borromeo islands are famous all over the world for their amazing beauty:
"Isola Pescatori" (the fishermen's island) is the smallest one. The island welcomes the tourists with its small and ancient alleys and its typical restaurants: the sudden glimpse of landscape that opens up suddenly in front of their eyes and in the same sudden way changes or disappears, baffling and delighting the visitor who is covering the narrow lanes or the steep flight of stone steps.
"Isola Madre" (Mother island), from the smallest island to the biggest one of Lake Maggiore. A huge floating botanical garden where thousands of plants are able to recreate their habitat in order to grow in full bloom by creating strange colour matching which will amaze the most daring painter.
"Isola Bella" (Beauty island), undoubtedly the most famous masterpiece of human talent mounted as if it were a
precious stone on the mirror of the lake. It is difficult to say what excites the tourist more: most probably both works joined together marvellously in a Baroque triumph offer splendours also to the most self-absorbed visitor.
