A chance to visit Torino (Turin)

Mole Antonelliana, Egyptian Museum, Sacra Sindone: these are only some of the things which are waiting for you in Turin. The city also features a vast choice of restaurant and bars, with a nightlife which is among the most thriving in Italy.

This year also marks the 150th since Italy was united, so the city is bursting with events and happenings.

The city, because of its international airport, is easy and relatively cheap to reach, both with mainstream and low cost carriers. High speed trains also connect it to France, Switzerland and the rest of Europe.

IPW is great chance to visit Turin!
