Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Turin: Reggia di Venaria Reale (in Venaria Reale), Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi (in Stupinigi) and Zoom Torino (in Cumiana). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Museo Egizio, catch a live event at Juventus Stadium, examine the collection at Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile, and steep yourself in history at Palazzo Reale.
