Turin is a fabulous city and of course has the Italian Alps right on its doorstep. The architecture is a mix of styles used over the centuries but its forte is the Baroque and Classical architecture of many of the city’s parks and public buildings built by Juarra and modelled on Versailles in France.

The city is big and a hire car is a useful way to get around - you shouldn’t miss Turin Cathedral where the Holy Shroud of Turin lives. More fascinating than the Shroud itself is the history of attempts to prove or disprove its authenticity.
