Turin Car Hire

In the northwest of Italy on the mighty River Po in an alpine surrounding is Turin. Having the reputation of being an industrial city Turin is in the process of having an urban regeneration on an extensive level. Turin was synonymous with car manufacturer Fiat which was established here in 1899 but for visitors there is more to contemplate than just cars. Art nouveau cafes and museums with collections of contemporary art to Egyptology and exquisite palaces, boulevards, grand piazzas, and baroque buildings are here in Turin which was the first capital of Italy. With the Winter Olympics being hosted here in 2006 the city has been transformed with the Olympic Village, new sports venues, renovation and construction of hotels and a complete overhaul of the transport system

The good food and wine and old world charm contribute to this city which dates back to Julius Caesar whose legacy to Turin is the Roman Quarter now buzzing with chic restaurants. An eye catching dome is the symbol of the city, Mole Antonelliana and near by is the Automobile Museum with gleaming examples of Ferraris, Maseratis and Alfa Romeos. Walking upstream is the Valentino Park running along the banks of the Po and is a favourite with those who picnic, cycle or jog.

The Botanical Garden is 18th century and sits comfortably with the reconstruction of a medieval castle and village and admired by those who are boating on the river. The Powerhouse of the old Fiat factory has been transformed into the Lingotto Complex which is a major attraction and asset to Turin. Housing an exhibition and conference centre, contemporary hotels, a multi screen cinema, vast auditorium and shopping complex has transformed this former industrial area

Turin is well known to pilgrims who visit to see the famous relic cloth, the Holy Shroud, which is thought to have been wrapped round the body of Christ after the crucifixion. However it is only on view every 25 years.
