How to reach us

Turin is located in northern Italy, close to the Alps and to the French border. It is the main city of the Piedmont region. Owing to its position, Turin is the natural reference point for the surrounding Alpine valleys and also the meeting point of large national and international routes.

For more information, see the web site of the City of Turin and its Tourist pages.
