Turin is known as a vibrant commercial centre, however, it offers a richly rewarding short break experience and deserves much more attention.It is home to one of Italy’s most beautiful cathedrals, an important opera house and, of course, the famous Turin Shroud. This was the seat of the House of Savoy, the Italian Royal Family and is a city of palaces, piazzas, churches and colonnaded streets. It has a wonderful setting on the banks of the River Po, with the Italian Alps in the distance. Turin has over 40 museums including Museo Egizio, home to the most important collection of Egyptian antiquities outside Cairo. The city has Europe’s largest outdoor food and vegetable market and some great restaurants. Turin is easily accessible by rail – it is on the TGV main line from Paris to Milan.
