Turin is a city bursting with so much activity, that it is almost impossible to do everything that there is to do, especially if all you have is a weekend. As much as possible, try and set aside a few extra days, or even a week to be able to savour all the delicious offerings this lively city can bring.

Think of theatre, think of Turin. Turin's theatre industry boasts of a multitude of operas and dramas, mostly held at the Carignano Theatre, which is a historical destination by itself, built in 1787. Classical performances by the renowned Stabile Theatre Company of Turin are usually done in the Carignano Theatre. Performances from other theatre companies that have been in the business for many years can be seen in the Alfieri, Colosseo and Nuovo Theatres out of 12 theatres you can choose to visit.

Jazz music fills the air in Turin. The city is sprawling with jazz pubs, and events such as the Newport Jazz Festival are a must! There is an abundance of shows such as operas, ballets, musicals, and other performances to serve as an excuse to go and appreciate the magnificence of these theatres. In addition, various art galleries to fit different tastes can be found here as well.

And if you are not the artistic type and lean more towards sporting events, you're still in luck because Turin has two of the most popular football clubs in the whole of Italy – Juventus and Torino. For avid football fans, a trip to Stadio delle Alpi, a stadium where these two world-renowned teams play, is a must. Also on February 10 to 26, 2006, Turin will play host to the 20th Winter Olympics.

Apart from these artistic and sporting activities, shopping, sightseeing, and other events and festivals are experiences waiting to happen, only in Turin.
