in the middle
As with most of Italy's major cities, Turin is endowed with buildings and monuments which pay testament to its long history. Even the cafes are imbued with historic elements and a stroll down any street will bring you face to face with relics of the past that have just as much impact today.
It can take just one hour for Turin flights to reach their destination and various budget airlines provide cheap flights to Turin from many UK airports. Turin-Caselle Airport is around twenty-five minutes from the city by road so getting to your accommodation after a flight to Turin will be no bother.
Turin car hire firms are available at the airport and also at the main train station within the city itself, so you should be spoilt for choice when it comes to booking a vehicle. Convenience may dictate that you pick up a car after Turin flights, but for those on foot there is plenty of other transport on offer, including trams, buses and even cable cars, each of which offers a different perspective on the city. Taxis are widely available outside cheap Turin hotels.
Mole Antonelliana is the building which has come to define Turin, originally a synagogue and now a museum of cinematic history. It also happens to be capped by the world's tallest masonry tower, which stands at just over 167 metres. A sightseeing plan is almost superfluous as just going for a wander along the streets will let you experience various sights and sounds of Turin.
