Parco del Valentino, Turin

4.6
#1 of 23 in Parks in Turin
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.

  • Beautiful city park catering to families, and sports, you'll encounter squirrels, approaching, there is the Botanical Garden, and the medieval village. The medieval al Valentino was born in 1884 which section of ancient art of Esposizione Generale Italiana di Torino, to play a feudal village in the 15th century. Worth visiting. Caution do not attend the evening. too many dealers.

  • Great place for a romantic stroll or to enjoy the silence of nature. I don't recommend going though by themselves, it's still a place where you can find everything. I recommend it in the afternoon, and I recommend having a walk for the medieval village, where I had the impression of living back in time. If you're lucky enough you can see from time to time some loving squirrel. Recommended for families and those in need of a little relaxation during days of high stress.

  • The Park is excellent, beautiful scenery, romantic, fabulous castle with the medieval village ... But be careful, it's full of criminals. The evening is absolutely off limits, full of drug addicts and drug dealers.

  • An age old historical park located by the bank of river Po at Turin, Italy. Excellent place for natural bio diversity. You will find lots of squirrel, and can offer them nuts. It will be an amazing experience to feed nuts to the squirrels of the park.
  • Beautiful city park with a castle and a medieval town to visit! Squirrels will come and greet you as you step in - be careful though, feeding the squirrels can be dangerous as they cannot eat human food.
  • Loved this park. A picnic and the double-bikes are definitely a must. One of my favourite places in Turin
  • Verry beautiful park, lot of green and rose collection, near the po river and the old city center, have night locals inside and beautiful things to watch for
  • Lovely park fully equipped with playground and fitness equipment. It's a pity that it is full of drug dealers at any time...
