If you hire a car in Milan, you can reach Turin within two hours.


Piedmont, Italy

Turin, or Torino as it is known in Italy, has a lot to offer, so it’s a perfect destination for a day-trip if you’re staying in Milan. There’s so much to see and do in Turin that you may even want to break up your Milan holiday by spending a few days there. It will take you just under two hours to drive to Turin in your Milan hire car. If you like winter sports, you’ll love Turin. You might want to spend a night or two in one of the nearby ski resorts so you can make the most of the skiing and snowboarding facilities.

Turin itself has some lovely cafés and shops, and the Ballôn flea market, held on Saturdays, is well worth a visit. Turin is particularly well known for its many historic buildings and museums, and places to visit include:
