Escorted Rail Tours to Turin
Known for the controversial Turin Shroud
Founded by the Romans in 28BC, the city of Turin has since been part of the Duchy of Savoy - including a stint as its capital - and the Kingdom of France before joining a united Italy in 1861. In the 1870s the Fréjus Tunnel was opened, providing a major link between France and Italy and boosting Turin's position as a bustling centre of trade. As a result of this long and varied history, Turin boasts a fantastic architectural heritage and a wealth of attractions.
