Turin — 2 nights

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Quadrilatero Romano and Santuario della Consolata. When in Turin, make a side trip to see Enoteca Caluso di Corrado Nicoli in Caluso, approximately Caluso away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of San Lorenzo, take an in-depth tour of Armeria Reale, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and examine the collection at Juventus Museum.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, use the Turin road trip planning tool.

Portland, USA to Turin is an approximately 16-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Portland to Turin.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Pinerolo.
