Why rent a car in Turin?
Turin is a fascinating place to explore. Although large and impressive, it is more relaxed than the other great cities of Italy such as Rome and Milan. Its castles and churches are breathtaking, it has some of the best museums in the country, and its local cuisine will surprise even the most demanding gormets. With the freedom of a car, you can later continue your travels to the nearby Alps, the sea, or even neighboring countries like Switzerland and France.

Useful city facts
- Turin enjoys a subtropical climate with drier winters and more humid summers than the rest of Italy. The average temperature is 22°C (72°F) in July, the warmest month, although temperature can be significantly higher on some summer days and heat waves are not uncommon. The average temperature is 2°C (36°F) in January, the coldest month, making Turin one of the coldest large cities in Italy.
- The first known civilization to have inhabited Turin was the Taurini, a Celto-Ligurian people who gave the city its name. Over its long history, Turin has seen many legendary rulers including the Ancient Romans, Ostrogoths, Lombards, and Carolingians. Nowadays, Turin is the capital city of Piedmont, a region made distinct by its accent, culture, and traditions.
Top destinations and activities
Villa della Regina. The impressive royal palace was built by the House of Savoy, the rulers of Turin, in the 17th century and has been one of the city’s landmarks ever since. The palace is surrounded by a garden as well as a vineyard that’s older than the building itself and has been providing grapes for wine since the late 16th century.
Egyptian Museum. Known as Egizio in Italian, this unique museum has the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts outside Egypt itself. With exhibitions on Ancient Egypt as well as on the later Coptic Christian and Muslim civilizations that came to rule that land, the museum houses many unique artifacts such as the Altar of Isis and the cliff temple of Ellesjia. The museum was renovated in late 2015 and is now even more impressive than before.
Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Turin’s main Duomo, this impressive cathedral was first built more than 500 years ago and was later enlarged to house the mysterious Shroud of Turin. Although the shroud itself is rarely displayed, the cathedral is nonetheless a very impressive place to visit thanks to its ornate chapels, towers, and church organ.
Traffic and parking tips
- The speed limit in cities is 50km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30km/h.
- Main highways are limited to 130km/h, non-major highways to 110km/h, and local roads to 90km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110km/h, 100km/h, and 80km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
- Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation need to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
- When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
- The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment.
- The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.
There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads along your planned route.
Ideas for a day-trip
- La Venaria Reale. Located in the town of the same name, this immense palace was first built in the 17th century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it houses impressive baroque structures such as the chapel of Sant’Uberto, the Galleria Grande, and the Diana’s Salon. Located just 14km (8.7 miles) northeast of Turin, La Venaria can be reached in about 20 minutes by car.
- The Italian Alps. Turin is a city that feels its mountain legacy and their proximity is why so many inhabitants have second homes in the thousands of little villages in the valleys. During summer, if you have a day and want to relax, take a trip to Gran Paradiso National Park, Orsiera Rocciavrè Park, or Val Varaita Park. During winter, the Alps offer a wide range of ski resorts from one of the world's greatest, Via Lattea, to a number of small ski areas which are less crowded and cheaper.
- Aosta Valley. One of the smallest regions of Italy, the Aosta Valley is also one of the most picturesque. Home to the impressive Alps, it borders some of Europe’s highest summits such as Mont Blanc (which is located on the French side of the border) and the Matterhorn (which is in Switzerland). Should the heights get you dizzy, drive down to the valleys where you’ll find plenty of cute, historic villages, each with their own story to tell and their own special delicacy to offer. Aosta, the capital city of the region, is located about 115km (71.4 miles) northwest of Turin and can be reached in about 90 minutes.
- Gran Paradiso National Park. Possibly the most scenic nature area in Italy, Gran Paradiso is the perfect place for long hikes in the mountains or simply for a refreshing day outdoors. The park is home to a number of unique species of wildlife, including the Alpine ibex (Gran Paradiso was originally built to protect this wild goat from overhunting), the grey wolf, and the Eurasian eagle-owl. About 150km (93 miles) northeast of Turin, the national park can be reached in two hours.
Most popular rental types and cars
The most popular rental car types in Turin are mini, economy, and compact. The most popular rental cars are the Citroën C1, the Fiat 500, and the Peugeot 308.
- Milan. Not only the most stylish city in Italy, Milan is also home to a wealth of famous landmarks from its gothic cathedral to the La Scala opera house, the Brera art gallery, and the modernist Pirelli tower. From here, you can also explore the rest of the Lombardy region starting with the beautiful Lake Como. Milan is about a two hour drive northeast of Turin.
- Switzerland. Turin is located near many interesting destinations in neighboring Switzerland. To the west is Geneva, the center of the French-speaking part of Switzerland and home to a stunning alpine lake. To the east is Ticino, the Italian-speaking part of the country that’s famous for picturesque towns like Lugano and Locarno. Both destinations can be reached in a couple of hours. Whichever way you choose to drive, you’ll be richly rewarded with culture, cuisine, and scenery. Keep in mind that to go from Italy to Switzerland you’ll have to cross an international border, so ask your car rental provider in advance if they permit it.
- Italian Riviera. Also known as La Riviera di Levante to differentiate it from the French part of the riviera, this beautiful stretch of coast in the province of Liguria is one of the favorite vacation spots for Italians. With plenty of options for sunbathing and doing water sports, the region is also famous for the town of Sanremo and its impressive historic center as well as for the Cinque Terre, five small fishing villages located in the rocky hills that are washed by the Mediterranean waves. Sanremo is just 230km (143 miles) south of Turin and you can explore the rest of the coastline from there.
