Not much to say on this, we were both very disappointed with Turin. We felt that we done a lot of driving in the city for nothing really, its not the easiest place to get around.

Turin wasn't the most exciting part of the vacation but it was a nice break from the fast pace of the rest of the two and a half weeks.
