Turin - Facts and Travel Information

Turin, known in Italian as Torino, is located in northwestern Italy, with the mighty Alps to the north and west.

One of the most famous places in Turin is the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist at Piazza San Giovanni, where the Shroud of Turin is kept. The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth that was supposedly placed over Jesus when he was placed in his tomb after his crucifixion. This cloth also bears the supposed image of Jesus.

The city is the host of the 2006 Winter Olympics.
