Full description
Meet your guide in the center of Turin near the Piazza Castello. From there make your way to Palazzo Madama and see the opulent palace that housed the first Senate of the Italian Kingdom. See the Roman ruins enclosed by medieval buildings, which feature a stunning baroque facade. Pass by the magnificent Royal Palace and admire the Turin Cathedral.

Marvel at the Palatine Gate, which has epic stone towers that date back to Turin’s Roman Era. Explore the Piazza Castella, the portico-lined heart of Turin. This busy square is where all of Turin’s central streets begin and is the former center of power of the Savoy Kingdom. The gorgeous buildings surrounding the piazza are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Stroll down the Via Po and then walk through the covered passageway of the Galleria Subalpina. Take in its exquisite mix of Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque styles. Reemerge in the Piazza Carlo Alberta, an ornate square which features a large statue of a horseman. See the bold facades of the Palazzo Carignano. Walk down the Via Lagrange and see the luxury stores that line the street. End your tour by discovering the shops and arcades of the Via Roma.
