Home of the Shroud of Turin

Turin (Torino) is the capital city of Piedmont in northern Italy and the birth town of the first King of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy. To many, Turin is known for its refined architecture and cuisine.

In my opinion, this is an understatement. Turin has much more to offer than just architecture and cuisine. Home to the famous Shroud of Turin and the world’s most important Egyptian museum outside Egypt, there are some notable sights which should not go unmentioned.

Not all buses and trains journeys from other parts of Europe adjourn in the heart of Turin. Some Flix bus rides adjourned at Torino (Vittorio Emanuele) situated along Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and opposite Tribunale di Torino.

Suggestion: Best to consult your tour operator and Google maps to determine how far it will take you to get to your accommodation and how.
