    INTERACTIVE TURIN’S GUIDE

    by marco2005 Written Jan 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: "Pollicino" (Tom Thumb) is a multilingual (Italian/English/French) software for interactive consultation on pda for tourist who like walking round the city to search stores, services and also to discover monuments, historical museums and palaces.
    A new high tech way to visit Turin. Leave the Lonely Planet back and go with your personal guide and be never lost.
    You have a Gps and a map preloaded with walking tours of the city (and a tool to create your owns). You have also a database with deep info for about 1000 point of interest. And the calendar with the scheduled shows and activities.
    Pollicino can be rented for 10 euro a day at the Turismo Torino Information Point at Atrium Torino in square "piazza Solferino".
    A caveat: I didn't used it, nor anyone I know (Pollicino is very unknown here). Maybe wise to pack also the Lonely Planet :-)

    Torino is a cold city!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Torino is very cold in winter, so you should bring warm clothes (overcoats, fur coats, scarves). The temperature easily goes below 0 ?C.

    Photo Equipment: Bring your camera, preferably a digital camera if you have one, to photograph all the beauties of the city!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Just like anywhere in italy pack some nice clothes unless you want to stick out as a foreigner. Italians really do dress well, even when they are wearing casual clothes. It doesn't mean designer clothes necessarily, it just means looking neat (even if simple) all the time... and believe me, it's not really that hard.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Family Travel

    Miscellaneous: If you do not speak Italian I would suggest you bring along a pocket dictionary. In many cities and countries you can get by with speaking in English but there are not many tourists in Turin and many of the people do not speak much English.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Torino lies exactly on the 45th parallel in a temperate zone and it has 4 seasons. Spring and Fall can be rainy, summer is hot and humid and most winters are cold and white.
    Adjust accordingly.
