Turin Things to Do

Hotels in Turin City Centre are well placed to access the numerous attractions and activities that are available in this interesting city. This is a very rewarding city to stroll about in, with engaging and pretty buildings on every street. The streets radiate out from the Piazza Castello at the centre of the city and this is an excellent starting place for exploring the city on foot, as well as a great location to enjoy a coffee and a pastry. Baratti & Milano on the Piazza has been serving coffee since 1873!

Turin on Foot

One of the prettiest and most interesting walks through the town is from the Piazza Castello to the Piazza Vittorio and then on to the River Po. The Gran Madre Church is close to the river and is well worth a visit. From the other side of the Piazza, stroll down to Porta Nuova, passing through the elegant and sophisticated streets around the Piazza San Carlo. If you want to explore further afield and enjoy a stunning view of the city and the surrounding landscape (Le Corbusier, the French architect, once described Turin as "the city with the most beautiful natural location in the world"), take a tram to Sassi and get the little train up to Superga.

Museums

There are three very unusual museums in Turin, all of which are worth a visit. The National Cinema Museum opened in 2000 to celebrate Italy’s long cinematic tradition. There are artefacts documenting the history of cinema and a huge amount of fascinating memorabilia, including the cape worn by Christopher Reeve in Superman! The Egyptian Museum is dedicated to Ancient Egypt and has a stunning collection of more than 30,000 exhibits that are beautifully arranged. Finally, the Museo dell’Automobile, which reopened in March 2011 after a three-year renovation, has an absolutely fascinating collection for petrolheads of all ages. With a display featuring over 170 different vehicles, from horse-drawn carriages to Formula 1 cars, this is possible the world’s best motor museum.
