  • For once the bull, symbol of the city, it should not be "taken by the horns," but for the male side trample on the pavement in front of the Café Torino. Superstitious ritual, now known not only by residents.

  • Events venue like ChocolaTO and Jazz Festival, the square is located in the middle of Via Roma. From Piazza Castello to Piazza Vittorio, it is above the natural path of tourists and residents. In the center there is a statue of Emanuele Filiberto.
  • Historic and Amazing
  • Greta restaurants and ice cream bars
  • I love walking into this square, admire the monument placed at its Center. His poems are wonderful and help to shelter from the rain or from the summer heat.

  • Turin is the living room, gorgeous in summer and comfortable in winter thanks to the porch, a little pricey parking and ztl for people used to travel by car, it is so convenient to anyone who is willing to travel by public transport.
