I toretti, Turin

4.6
#12 of 66 in Sightseeing in Turin
Fountain Tourist Spot
I toretti, or small fountains with the head of a bull, symbolize Turin for locals and tourists alike. You won’t likely visit them all, as there are 800 spread out across the city’s public spaces. The fresh water they provide proves invaluable during hot weather. Politicians have tried to replace them with water-saving, on-demand fountains, but locals resist such efforts. Bring a water bottle and fill up at one of these for free. See I toretti and all Turin has to offer by arranging your trip with our Turin tour planner.

  • I'm not impressed and It's over rated. It the symbol of Turin. Not much to do. Not much to say about it. It's just simply water fountain with Taurus head.  more »
