Destination guide

You're in Turin—smile and say "chocolate!"

Admire the Alps towering over northwest Turin and you'll see why this city was a great place to host the 2006 Winter Olympics. Aside from the umpteen outdoor activities you'll find when you book Turin vacation rentals, there are also excellent restaurants, beautiful churches and palaces, opera houses, piazzas, and theaters. Italy's fourth largest city is also an industrial hub for the whole country, making everything from cars (Fiat) to chocolate to vermouth. In fact, both vermouth and solid chocolate originated here. If those 2 things aren't awesome enough, Italian cinema also started here.

Things to do

Take a tip from Fellini and spend 8.5 days here

Remember how Turin's where Italian cinema was born? Visit the interactive National Cinema Museum at Mole Antonelliana to learn more about it. Definitely tour the Baroque Palace of Veneria and its sprawling gardens, and then peruse the Egyptian artifacts at Museo Egio. With Turin vacation rentals near the city's center, you'll find town squares like Piazza Castello lined with restaurants, theaters, and oh yes, more historic buildings. And Allianz Stadium is a sweet spot—one of Italy's best arenas in fact—for a Juventus football match.

Activities

Chocolate lovers and cinephiles, you'll want to stay awhile

In addition to delicious northern Italian cuisine that's filled with white truffles and rich sauces, Turin's not-so-secret ingredient is chocolate. There's an annual "cioccolato" festival (the date varies), but if you can't wait, drink "bicerin," the city's signature coffee/chocolate bevvy. Turin's celebrated for its cinema too, and the Torino film festival is every November. You'll love a walking tour around the Baroque buildings, long-standing palaces, scenic town squares, and cafes that make up central Turin. And for a breath of fresh air, head to the mountains for some hiking and skiing, or for daredevils, there's skydiving, paragliding, and white-water rafting.

Weather

Spring and fall take Turin by storm; summer's nice and hot

In the summer months, temps hit highs in the mid-80s, with July being the sunniest and hottest of them all. The lowest temps in December and January are in the mid-30s, with some snowfall here and there, but you'll need to journey into the Alps a bit for a sure bet on the white stuff. Fall and spring bring the rain, and the high humidity coupled with the nearby mountain range forms some sweet thunderstorms that are common from spring to fall. November's crowded due to the film festival, and early summer is also a popular time.

Natural features

A river runs through it and it's a really important one

The mighty Po River is Italy's largest and most important waterway, and 4 of its tributaries flow through Turin. And the surrounding Po Valley, a fertile plain with abundant vegetation, will totally take your breath away. Most Turin vacation rentals will give you great views of the Alps, which border the north and west sides of the city. Finally, Italy has the highest biodiversity in all of Europe, so you're guaranteed to see some interesting wildlife. Marmots, lynx, and wolves reside in the Alps, and there are 100s of bird species in the Po Valley.
