Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
The weather in Turin is marked by very distinct seasons. If the sunny summer is often very hot, the winter is, on the contrary, cold! In January, it is not uncommon for Turin's temperatures to approach 0°C, while spring and autumn show milder, and even very pleasant, seasons, with an average of 20-22°C.
Piedmont (and Turin) is a region where the quality/price ratio is among the best in the peninsula. In Turin promotions are frequent and, often, a nice hotel or a very good meal becomes more easily accessible than elsewhere. In general, restaurants, transport and shops keep completely correct prices in all localities. Italy being in the euro zone, the currency is the euro.
EU citizens and Swiss citizens. For a stay of less than 3 months in Turin: valid identity card or passport. Beyond 3 months, you must obtain from the Questura ("prefecture") the permesso di soggiorno ("residence permit") which will be valid for a period of 5 years.
Canadian citizens. For a stay of less than 3 months in Turin: valid passport.
Beyond the 3 months, apply for a visa at the nearest Italian embassy or consulate or have a 3-month extension (rarely granted) issued by the Questura on site.
No particular vaccine is required to enter Italy, and therefore to travel to Turin
Hygiene. When you go shopping in supermarkets, don't forget to take gloves before serving yourself bread or fruit. There are always some next to the products and it is frowned upon not to use them.
A trivial but important detail, there are few public toilets in Italy. The bar toilets, often in excellent condition (profusion of marble and ceramics), will perfectly suit the most pressing needs.
Tap water is drinkable depending on the location in Turin. So find out before you drink it.
