Turin

— 2 nights

City of Magic

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.
On the 17th (Sat), see the interesting displays at Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile, walk around Parco del Valentino, then admire the striking features of Palazzo Reale, and finally make a trip to Basilica of Superga. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of Museo Egizio, then don't miss a visit to Piazza Castello, and then see the interesting displays at Museo Nazionale del Cinema.

For photos, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Turin trip site.

Traveling by car from Stresa to Turin takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. While traveling from Stresa, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Turin, ranging from highs of 30°C to lows of 21°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) to allow enough time to take a train back home.

Bordered by the Alps on three sides and often overlooked by casual tourists, the Piedmont region is famous for its wines, including Moscato D'Asti, Barolo, and Barbera, to name just a few. Piedmont's cuisine is renowned throughout Italy. Its exotic white truffles--a precious ingredient used in first-class restaurants around the world--are often compared to gold because of their staggering cost. An ideal holiday destination for foodies, the region is also known for its thriving industries of fresh produce, nuts, and chocolates. There are many places to visit in Piedmont, including several medieval castles, trendy spa resorts, and cities with both historical attractions and modern industries.
