The province of Torino is one of the largest provinces in Italy with the highest number of municipalities. It is made up of a mountainous part to the west and north along the border with France and the the Aosta Valley, and a flat or hilly part in the southern and eastern areas, and it is crossed mainly by the Po River.

The mountains around Torino are the absolute protagonists able to satisfy any desire and passion: from winter sports, to cycling, from hiking to simple walks surrounded by nature. Whichever destination you choose, it takes about an hour and a half by car from the Piedmontese capital, and along the route there are many attractions that deserve a visit. On the way to Susa Valley, it is absolutely a must to stop at the Sacra di San Michele, a symbol of the Piedmont Region that inspired the writer Umberto Eco in the writing of his bestseller “Il nome della Rosa” (The Name of the Rose). The religious complex that stands on Mount Pirchiriano is dedicated to the cult of the Archangel Michael, defender of the Christians, and it is part of a route of pilgrimage over 2000km long that goes from Mont Saint-Michel in France to Monte Sant’Angelo in Puglia
