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.Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone and Palazzo Reale will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo Egizio and Ferraris Agricola. Get out of town with these interesting Turin side-trips: Reggia di Venaria Reale (in Venaria Reale), Zoom Torino (in Cumiana) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Morgex). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Museo Nazionale del Cinema, do a tasting at Azienda Agricola But di Meistro Flavio, don't miss a visit to Piazza San Carlo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of Superga.
