Turin, Italy

Turin
A city of technology and industry, Turin is in northwestern Italy, a one-hour drive from the French border and slightly more than that from the Mediterranean Sea.
Bring the kids along to Colline di Torino and Basilica di Maria Ausiliatrice. Step off the beaten path and head to Lillaz Waterfalls and Museo Pietro Micca. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Turin: Giardino Botanico Alpino Paradisia (in Cogne), Morgex (Lago d'Arpy & River Rafting & Tubing) and Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso (in Aosta). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Borgo Medievale, examine the collection at Civic Museum of Ancient Art (Palazzo Madama), make a trip to Piazza Vittorio Veneto, and get to know the fascinating history of Piazza C.L.N.

To find ratings, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Turin day trip site.
