4.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web
Take a relaxing walk through Parco del Valentino, officially opened in 1856 as the country’s first public garden. The vast park contains a botanical garden, a castle, and a medieval village built specifically for the 1884 World’s Fair. The park stretches along the Po River and covers an area of about 50 hectares (124 acres). For the first few decades of the 20th century, the park served as the site of popular car races, the most notable of which was the 1948 Italian Grand Prix. The days of cars speeding over the park’s paved circuit are long gone, but the site still contains a special bench built in honor of Enzo Ferrari, perhaps the country’s best known racecar driver and automotive entrepreneur.

  • For sure a beautiful park, full of squirrels and plants, along the Po River, near the historical center. To see and review several times in different seasons. A green lung for those who live here.

  • We walked the length of this park to go to the medieval village at its southern end. Go for the great walking and a bit of greenery. The village was OK but it's a reproduction and not worth an excursi...  read more »

  • a nice decent place for a long walk, cycling, skating. So peacefull and quite decent location to hangout. Nice sceneries as well, along the river side.
  • Best place to run, relax or rest! By the great River (Fiume) Po...always one event or the other happening, and there are nice spots to get food and drink...also had a couple of castles and a Middle Age village!
  • This old park is close to the center of Torino and is easy to be reached. On the side of the river Po is connected to the other side by bridges, his border arrives till the near park of Vallere, in the city of Moncalieri. Walking around you can see a nice free entry botanical garden, the four seasons' fountain, the Borgo Medioevale and Valentino castles, the Promotrice delle Belle Arti, the Armida rowing club and many bar and pubs. It is a nice place where to have a walk, a bike ride, to go by rollerblade and to relax.
  • amazing location for an evening walk on thr bank of river po or an afternoon picnic in the sun.
  • It's an amazing park. It's Huge & have a lot of trees. If you keep walking you'll find Valentino's castle and also Borgo medievale. It also has fountains and a lot of people enjoying the scenery, since it's just next to the river Po! So have fun with you and your family! 😉
