Turin

— 5 nights

City of Magic

A city of technology and industry, Turin is in northwestern Italy, a one-hour drive from the French border and slightly more than that from the Mediterranean Sea.
Step off the beaten path and head to Piazza San Carlo and Museo Pietro Micca. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at MAO - Museo d'Arte Orientale, ponder the design of I toretti, make a trip to Piazza Castello, and get engrossed in the history at Museo Egizio.

Plan my Turin trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Montreal, Canada to Turin is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Montreal to Turin is 6 hours. Traveling from Montreal in November, expect Turin to be a bit warmer, temps between 11°C and 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to catch the train to Milan.
