Turin is a real gem of an Italian city, sitting pretty at the top of the country with the magnificent backdrop of the Alps mountain range. It may not be known for being glamorous like Northern neighbour Milan, nor romantic like watery Venice, yet Turin has a magic all of its own.
Flying into Turin works perfectly for ski holidays, as the snowy slopes of the Alps are practically on the city's doorstep. The impressive network of ski resorts known as the Milky Way is within striking distance, with Claviere (old school charm), Sauze d'Oulx (loud and lively), Sestriere (for challenging runs), Montgenevre (quiet French resort) and Sansicario (popular with families) all being within two hours of the Italian city.
Bardonecchia is one of the closest ski resorts to Turin, which makes it a good choice if you fancy a short ski break. This traditional town surrounding by pines and snowy peaks is a favourite with Turin locals, and the après ski scene can get fairly lively on the weekends. Alternatively, it's easy to stay in the centre of Turin, travelling out to the slopes if you wish.
Staying in Turin will see you treated to an elegant Italian city experience, with pretty piazzas, wide tree-lined avenues, leafy parks and classical architecture. The Mole Antonelliana, a 167m tower topped with an aluminium spire, is one of the city's major landmarks and is now home to the National Cinema Museum, while the white-walled Royal Palace is a real sight to behold - both inside and out. You should also tick the Egyptian Museum, the impressive Piazza Castello and Valentino Park off your list to make the most of any visit.
A tour of Turin will see you taking in stunning architecture, beautiful fountains and elaborate landmarks, as well as a classy but lively nightscene. Contrast this with the vast mountain ranges, amazing snow conditions and pretty village resorts that can be seen from the city centre and it's clear that this is a destination which has it all.
