Turin (Torino) is the capital of Italy's north-western region of Piedmont (Piemonte).

Geographically located at the cross point of the Po River and the Dura River, the city is surrounded by the snow-covered Alpine arch, which offers an impressive backdrop.

With a population of 909,193 inhabitants, which reaches 2.2 million people including the metropolitan area, Turin is a major business, industrial and cultural centre.

In 2006, Turin successfully hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, after years of careful preparations by the city authorities, local industries and NGOs.   

Turin is a member of the League of Historical and Accessible Cities (LHAC), a project established by the European Foundation Centre.

The main aim of the League of Historical and Accessible Cities is to improve the accessibility of historical towns promoting, at the same time, sustainable tourism development and the protection of cultural heritage.

To learn more about Turin's accessibility programme and the LHAC, visit the city of Turin's webpage on the LHAC website
