Practical card. You must be careful and book online for each activity to avoid not being able to enter despite having the card. The card is perfect, it works directly with the QR download on your mobile. The problem is the Italian organization of the museums, which despite having this procedure done, they make you wait in the normal queue to validate your entry, so the advantage of not waiting is eliminated. But I repeat, it is a problem with the organization system. of the city's museums. The card is profitable if you decide to visit almost everything. I got the 3-day one and saved about 20 euros. Each museum is already between 15 most and some 10.

It's handy to have a card that guarantees you free reservations at museums. At the museum level, however, the queues were not managed well (apart from the car museum) and those who had the card queued in the same queue as everyone else, perhaps having booked.

Thanks to the Day City Card system we were able to easily visit several sites in Turin. And this at good prices. If we can also reserve our tickets online on these sites, it's even easier. Nice trip to Turin where we are thinking of returning.

you could avoid queuing to buy the ticket, since the payment is included in the City Card it could be sufficient to show the QR Code

With the Turin-Piedmont card you can travel very well, without the worry of having to buy museum tickets. I highly recommend it
