Turin by Train

Sometimes referred to as the "Capital of the Alps" Turin is Italy's fourth largest city.  The River Po glides through its centre and the mountains tower over its skyline.   Famous for its Fiat factories as much as the mystery of the Holy Shroud, Turin has a thriving cafe culture,  a fine gastronomic heritage and some wonderful museums. In 2006 it played host to the Winter Olympics.  Find out more about this elegant city.
