Which way to Turin?

Before you start checking flights or plotting where to stop along your road trip… consider this: the emissions you emit for every kilometer traveled by airplane are significantly higher than by coach or train. And single-person car journeys are no better! Our commitment to a greener future for our food system begins with our own actions, so Slow Food encourages our visitors to carpool, and avoid air travel, wherever possible.
