Turin — 5 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile and Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone. Do some cultural sightseeing at Palazzo Reale Di Torino and Museum of the Risorgimento. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museo Pietro Micca e dell'assedio di Torino del 1706, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Santa Maria del Monte dei Cappuccini, explore the world behind art at Fondazione Accorsi Ometto - Museo di Arti Decorative, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cappella dei Banchieri e dei Mercanti.

Plan my Turin trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Turin is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Tel Aviv to Turin due to the time zone difference. In May, Turin is slightly colder than Tel Aviv - with highs of 20°C and lows of 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Alba.
