The name Piedmont reflects the region’s close relationship with the mountains and hills that are Turin’s characteristic features. Piedmont has always been the Alpine region par excellence; its very name, which means “at the foot of the mountains”, conjures up a picturesque, charming panorama. Thanks to its geographical location, Piedmont is easily reached by car, train and plane from every corner of Europe.

Turin is a city of numerous identities and different characteristics that blend discreetly, so remote and yet so central, so sub-alpine and yet so cosmopolitan, so geometrical and yet so astonishing; a strong combination of entirely Italian, exuberant imagination and a strict northern European framework.

A walk round the city provides a chronological account of Turin’s history, linking the Roman city to the capital of the Duchy of Savoy and the Kingdom of Sardinia, the heart of the Italian Risorgimento, from first capital of Italy in 1861 to capital of culture today .

Turin also is a European capital of Baroque art: great architects such as Guarino Guarini, Filippo Juvarra and Ascanio Vitozzi have left their mark with magnificent buildings (the Royal Residences, churches, private and public town palaces, urban design).

Another important feature of Turin is its museums: more than 40 museums satisfy every curiosity, from the Egyptian Museum, the second most important in the world, to the National Museum of Cinema, the only one of its type in Europe. In February 2006 Turin will be the seat of the Olympic Winter Games.


An excellent road network connects Turin to the main national and European communication routes. Turin can be reached not only through motorways but also through the main tunnels and passes connecting Italy, France and Switzerland. It is linked by road to France through the Tenda and Frejus tunnels, over the Montgenèvre pass and through the Mont Blanc tunnel via the Aosta Valley, and to Switzerland over the Simplon pass and the Great St. Bernard pass (Aosta Valley).

Turin Sandro Pertini Airport lies 16 kilometers (10 miles) from the city centre. It connects with the busy motorway network that allows easy access to the most important cities of northern Italy and southern France. Sandro Pertini Airport connects with eight national and seventeen international destinations. For additional information you may visit the airport website Shuttle buses are available from airport (arrival level, just in front of exit) to city centre (Porta Nuova Station) and from city centre to airport every day.

Tickets: News-stand (Departures lounge); tourist bureau, ticket office, ticket machines (Arrivals level); and aboard

A taxi to the city centre is approximately 30 Euros (20 to 30 minutes)


Buses and trams cover the whole of the city and its surroundings from morning until late at night. The tickets can be purchased in tobacconists', newsagents and public places displaying the GTT sticker. There are various ticket possibilities: the ordinary urban ticket with 70 minute validity, the 15-ticket block etc. Getting around easily from one end of Turin to the other is simple and comfortable.
