Turin Holidays

An elegant city that should be explored

Turin tucks itself away amongst the mountains of north-westerly Piedmont. This elegant city is home to a host of foodie firsts, from hot chocolate as we know it to the most Italian of foodie traditions: aperitivo.

But a holiday to Turin isn’t all café-hopping and fine dining. You could wander around the Museo Egizio’s collection of sarcophagi, climb the tower of Turin Cathedral (home to the Shroud of Turin), or take a seat at the National Museum of Cinema in the Mole Antonelliana.

Fancy exploring further afield? Turin makes an excellent springboard for exploring northern greats like Lake Maggiore and Milan.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Turin.
