Coach Hire & Bus Rental For Every Occassion
Almost one million people live in the Italian city of Turin. Located in the northwest of Italy, it’s famous as it’s home to Italy’s former royal family, giving it a regal edge and a rather aristocratic atmosphere.
There are plenty of sophisticated shops together with leafy parks, tree-lined boulevards and palaces, and the city has the River Po running right through it.
In 2006 it played host to the Winter Olympics, and has recently acquired the status of World Book Capital. This has led to an influx of visitors and it’s now firmly on the map as a desirable tourist destination.
That said; it’s also an important hub for technology and industry, with FIAT having its headquarters here.
If you want to get from the airport to your Turin accommodation quickly and efficiently, why not book Turin airport transfers with RentABus.com? We’ll whisk you from Turin airport to your hotel or apartment in one of our comfortable minibuses or coaches.
For a touch of added luxury, you may want to book our Turin limousine hire, which will take you the 15 kilometres from Turin airport along the motorway to your destination.
We also offer Malpensa airport transfers, and transfers to all Alpine ski resorts.
With a long history of art and culture, Turin is a fantastic place to visit if you love culture and sophistication. There’s important baroque palaces and churches, several world-renowned museums, a widespread network of ornate arcades and coffee shops galore.
Turin is also home to the controversial ‘Shroud of Turin’, which is stored in a vault below the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist.
Turin isn’t a typical Italian city; its wide tree-lined boulevards and white buildings give it more of a French feel, so it’s hardly surprising that it’s often referred to as ‘little Paris’.
Perhaps Turin’s most famous building, Mole Antonelliana, with its 167.5-metre-high tower, was completed in 1888. Originally a synagogue, it now houses one of the finest museums of cinema in Europe.
If you love cars, don’t miss a visit to Museo dell’Automobile. With over 170 vehicles ranging from 18th century carriages to Formula 1 racing cars, it’s a must-see, if only for its display of stunning red Italian sports cars. As this museum is located around 5 kilometres outside of the city centre, we can organise minibus tours for you and your friends.
A visit to the Egyptian Museum should also be on your to-do list. Home to the most important collection of artefacts from Ancient Egypt outside of Cairo itself, it was founded in 1824 by King Carlo Felice. There’s over 30,000 exhibits in this museum, so you’ll need plenty of time to spare.
One of the world’s largest royal residences, Reggia di Venaria Reale was originally built as a hunting lodge in 1675 by the Duke of Savoy and it should also be on your list. It’s now a UNESCO-listed site, and this ostentatious baroque palace complex boasts vast gardens, water shows with a stag fountain centrepiece, regular live concerts and temporary exhibitions. Once again, we can arrange competitively priced minibus rentals to transport you to the palace in regal style.
Turin is home to many designer shops and it’s also a great place to buy food and wines. If you plan to indulge yourself in some of the shops in Via Roma where you’ll find Gucci, Prada and Hermes; Via Garabaldi, Europe’s longest shopping street; the upmarket boutiques on Via Lagrange; or Via Po with its ‘alternative’ shops, we can transport you and your purchases.
We can also arrange trips to Le Gru, a large shopping centre outside Turin in Grugliasco, in one of our well-appointed minibuses.
Whether you want to hire a minibus to take you and your friends on a shopping trip, you need a limousine to whisk you from the airport to your accommodation or you simply want a reliable way to get your business party around, contact RentABus.com now and let us take the strain away from you when it comes to getting around Turin in style.
