Winter Olympics set tone for Turin tourism

Formally overshadowed by the fashion of Milan and the romance of Venice, Turin is staking its claim of the tourism pie whilst hosting the 2006 Winter Olympics.

Long held-dear by ski fanatics (Turin is home to the some of the best skiing in the World) yet the city itself is often over-looked if not completely ignored by snow-bound travellers.

Once the home of Italian film, in its hey-day Turin even provided the location for some of the most iconic cinematic moments from The Italian Job. It is now hoped that some of these famous landmarks will be recognised during filming of the games, and that the spectators flocking to the slopes will venture into the town to explore its delights for themselves.
