Destination guide

Turin isn't all about the city

While most visitors to the area make a beeline to the city, those who score a Metropolitan City of Turin vacation rental out in the alpine countryside are rewarded with some seriously scenic walking paths, not to mention cycling trails which pass impressive hilltop gems, like the Sacra di San Michele and pretty little villages. When you visit Italy, you'll eat like a king and Turin is no exception. Exquisite traditional pastas and woodfired meats, paired with some fine local wines, await. The flurries of snow in winter provide everything skiers and snowboarders need to hit the slopes.

Things to do

Ancient artifacts await history buffs in Turin

The city is home to one of the world's most significant religious artifacts in the world – the Turin Shroud. It's been a cause of many debates between scholars and scientists for centuries, but many believe it to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth. Turin is packed with magnificent buildings and history buffs shouldn't miss the 16th-century Palazzo Reale or the Palazzo Madama. It might not be Italian, but the Egyptian Museum near the Piazza San Carlo was created in the early 19th century and houses an impressive collection of artifacts from the days of the pharaohs.

Activities

Outdoor adventures in Turin's hilly terrain

The hilly terrain that characterizes this part of Italy is lined with vineyards and makes for some seriously scenic adventuring. You can saddle your horse to go riding along the winding mountainous equestrian trails, or hike along the challenging footpaths. The rushing rivers and glistening lakes make for perfect canoeing and kayaking conditions, while golfers who've brought their clubs can spend sunny afternoons teeing off. During the winter, the adventures aren't over. You can dust off your skis, or snowboards, to hurtle down the miles of snowy slopes near your Metropolitan City of Turin vacation rental.

Weather

Sunny summers and snowy winters in Turin

With such sunny climes between June and August, it's hardly surprising that most travelers book up Metropolitan City of Turin vacation rentals in summer. The weather can be truly glorious, but the queues at the attractions aren't. If you're looking to skip the long lines and don't mind slightly cooler weather, which is arguably better for outdoor activities anyhow, try to bag one of the rentals between, in April and May, or September and October. If you visit over winter, prices bounce up again, as thrill-seekers descend for snowy sports on the mountains.

Natural features

You won't need to travel far for nature in Turin

The landscape around Turin is astonishingly beautiful. Expect magnificent alpine vistas, long stretches of woodland filled with resident wildlife and grassy meadows criss-crossed by sweeping vineyards. Walking through the countryside reveals all sorts of mountain critters, like ibex and chamois, as well as a ton of birdlife. If you stay at a Metropolitan City of Turin vacation rental outside of the city, you'll have several reserves within easy reach, including the Sacro Monte Natural Reserve and the Gran Paradiso National Park. Just remember to pack your hiking boots and camera.
