Say “arrivederci” to Turin and use your car to explore more of southern Europe...
When your backyard is filled with the gigantic peaks of the Italian Alps, you know for certain that adventures are on the doorstep. When the temperature drops and the snow falls, Turin is a popular city base for fun on the slopes. Within just 90 minutes of leaving the city you could be preparing to whoosh down the slopes in destinations such as Sauze d'Oulx. Some of the Italian resorts, which are competing with glamorous French neighbours, are known for low prices, if not the best skiing in southern Europe.
If city breaks are more your thing, consider trips from Turin to the football- and fashion-crazy city of Milan, which is a two-hour trip by road. There are many excellent hotels in Milan so it’s worth considering a short stay to ensure you see attractions such as the Duomo di Milano, Da Vinci’s Last Supper, and La Scala opera house – or to catch a match at the San Siro, home to both Inter Milan and AC Milan.
The medieval port city of Genoa is also reached in less than two hours by road from Turin and gorgeous beach resorts dot the nearby coastline.
For all out glamour French style, hop across the border and join the jet set in destinations such as Nice and Cannes. It takes almost four hours to drive to Nice on a good day – on a bad day, when the sun beats down and summer-time day-trippers descend on the coast, it can take much longer. You can use TravelSupermarket to compare hotel prices too, so consider splitting your trip into as many stages as you like to make the most of your precious holiday time. Bon voyage (or buon viaggio in Italian).
