Turin is located along the Po River in the Piemonte Region of Italy. The area is known for its fresh truffles in October, great wines, and creative cuisine. It is the home of the 2006 Winter Olympics. It has the largest piazza in Italy (see photo). It is also the home of an historic and active university.
It is a vibrant city with lots of life and activites, but it is the right size to get around by foot or public transportation. There are great restaurants and wine bars in walking distance from the city hotels. Accommodations are available in all price categories. Take a day trip to taste wines in Alba and Barolo.
