There is a range of car hire services at Turin Airport, so if you’re travelling by air you’ll be able to pick up your Turin hire car as soon as you land. Look for your car hire provider’s office in the Turin Airport arrivals lounge or the multi-storey car park. There are also several car hire locations in Turin city centre, including offices near Porta Nuova and Porta Susa stations.
Turin is one of Italy's major economic centres and is linked to the rest of the country by a good motorway network. The city also easily reached from France and Switzerland via tunnels and mountain passes. While the motorways are the quickest way between major cities, the winding smaller roads that criss-cross Piedmont are more picturesque, and are generally in good condition, even in the smaller villages.
Turin city centre’s ‘ZTL zone’ is restricted to authorised cars only, so park up outside the zone and navigate on foot. Many of the main attractions are clustered around Piazza Castello, including the Royal Palace and Turin Cathedral.
