Turin

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.
Attractions like Museo Egizio and Piazza San Carlo make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Turin: Zoom Torino (in Cumiana) and Pista Ciclabile Airasca - Moretta (in Airasca). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Museo Nazionale del Cinema, make a trip to Basilica of Superga, admire the landmark architecture of Palazzo Reale, and take in nature's colorful creations at Parco del Valentino.

Bordered by the Alps on three sides and often overlooked by casual tourists, the Piedmont region is famous for its wines, including Moscato D'Asti, Barolo, and Barbera, to name just a few. Piedmont's cuisine is renowned throughout Italy. Its exotic white truffles--a precious ingredient used in first-class restaurants around the world--are often compared to gold because of their staggering cost. An ideal holiday destination for foodies, the region is also known for its thriving industries of fresh produce, nuts, and chocolates. There are many places to visit in Piedmont, including several medieval castles, trendy spa resorts, and cities with both historical attractions and modern industries.
