Full description
Enjoy a 3-hour walking tour of Turin’s classic sights, from the baroque palaces and porticoes of the old city center to its medieval Cathedral, home to the fabled Turin Shroud.

The tour starts at Piazza Castello, and sets off to visit Palazzo Madama, the favorite residence of the Ladies of the Royal Court. The Next stop is the Palazzo Reale (Royal Court) where the Savoy kings held court. Spy the spire of the Cathedral, before getting up-close to its stern medieval façade. Debate still rages as to whether the piece of linen inside is the cloth that wrapped the body of Christ or not.

Walk through Piazza San Carlo, one of the city’s most elegant squares that was once dubbed “Europe’s sitting room.” Admire the fine baroque architecture of Piazza Carignano, including the palazzo where King Vittorio Emanuele II was born. Next, explore the Quadrilatero Romano, where the Roman grid-like system of the city’s original plan is most evident.

During the tour, you will stop for an Italian espresso, accompanied by some "giandujotti," Turin's famous walnut chocolates.

Very knowledgeable guide and great introduction to Turin

Natalia took us on the three-hour walking tour of Turin. We'd never visited the city and were delighted to learn of its deep history and importance, from the Celts all the way to the invention of Martini, headquarters of FIAT, and more! Natalia is a local and can tell you the history of just about every building (if you want to know) and I can't imagine a more insightful and knowledgeable guide. Our tour covered the salient features of the central area of the city (mostly within the old Roman walls) including some parts outside. By the end of the tour we felt we knew the place pretty well. I'd much rather take a historical walk with Natalia than sit in one of those double decker buses and listen to an automated voice describe the monuments.
