Italy's fourth largest city, Turin or Torino as it is called in Italian, has about 1.7 million inhabitants. The city is best known for the car brand Fiat, the football team Juventus and Italian film.
The city is located in northwestern Italy, about 150 km from Milan. The climate is slightly cooler than the Mediterranean temperatures in the rest of Italy. July and August are the warmest here with about 30 degrees during the days.
The main landmark in Turin is the Mole Antonelliana. This historic building began to be built in 1863 on behalf of the Jewish community in Turin. The building has been used by the city for various museums and since the year 2000 it houses the country's national film museum, Museo Nazionale Del Cinema and it is well worth a visit.
In the Cathedral Duomo Di San Giovanne Battista you can see the famous Shroud of Turin. A linen cloth that since the 14th century has been claimed to be the shroud of Jesus. The authenticity of the scan is a much debated issue. The canvas has a faint imprint of a face and a body, but is the imprint of Jesus? There is of course no concrete evidence of that.
In Turin, the first solid chocolate was produced in the late 18th century. That was when a machine was invented that could offer alternatives to the drinkable chocolate. Turin is today a center for chocolate production and there are 17 factories in the city. The CIOCCOLATÒ chocolate festival in Turin has been held annually since 2003, with the participation of a number of Italian and international chocolate manufacturers. For 10 days, events, workshops and tastings are held with different types of chocolate - in all colors, flavors and shapes.
In Italy, it is still popular to drink chocolate. If you order a bicerine, you get hot chocolate mixed with coffee and topped with cream.
Turin is home to one of the world's most famous and successful club teams in football, Juventus F. C which plays in Italy's highest league, Serie A. The team plays its home matches at Juventus Stadium which holds 41,000 spectators. Contact us at GO Sport Travel to secure Official Match Tickets for Juventus F.C!
If you like to ski, there are all possibilities for that when you visit Turin. A day trip to the Italian Alps is something we at GO Sport Travel strongly recommend. Sestriere, Cervinia and Sauze d’Oulx are some popular ski resorts just 1 ½ hour from Turin Airport.
Turin International Airport is one and a half miles from the city center. The easiest way to get between the airport and Turin is by express train, bus or taxi. The travel time is approximately 30 - 40 minutes regardless of which means of transport you choose. Bus is the most convenient and cheapest, as the express train does not go to central Turin but to a station on the outskirts of the city.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
