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.

Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Museo Egizio, don't miss a visit to Piazza Castello, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di Superga, and steep yourself in history at Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone.
