Parco del Valentino, Turin

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
Garden
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.

  • Park place on the river po in Turin where you can spend relaxing moments, walk and eat with confidence

  • The park that combines the artistic beauty of the castle of Valentino, the medieval, the natural beauty of lungo Po. Very large park, both for jogging or lie down to enjoy the Sun, on large meadows located inside. Used extensively for physical activity because you can find alestr equipment, soccer fields and basketball hoops. Trivia: in the Park it is easy to find in the scogliatoli, who are easily move through the use of peanuts!

  • Pleasant city park where you can enjoy a nice walk on foot or by bike, with surprise ending of reconstruction of the small medieval town. In the Park you can rent bicycles and rickshaws and plenty of places to eat. It's worth a spin if you are in Turin.

  • The Park of Turin. In its vertical extension from Corso Vittorio Emanuele southwards to Lingotto, it remember to the visitors the well-known Central Park. It often hosts stands and booths of international fairs and exhibits (b2c). Foreigners visiting Turin must have a relaxing walk in the big park to admire the longest Italian river and the other mighty side with the hill of Turin. The Valentino castle represent one of the two most beautiful historical buildings of the park, with the huge castle that is today the headquarter of the faculty of architecture (a branch of the Polytechnic of Turin). The latter looks like a small Versailles in the hearth of Turin. You can walk in the world, from New York to Paris in just some chilometers of the Valentino Park. Does it sound great, doesn't it?
  • Bellisimo is rather an understatement for this lovely park. It holds some historic history and also peaceful lake side views. Get a coffee and a sandwich and enjoy. One of those few places where you don't mind to having forgotten to get your headphones.
  • This is the main park in Turin. It holds several routes where people can freely jogging, skating or biking. The park is located along the river Po. In Autumn is full of squirrels and it's a great place for hanging out with friends.
  • I didn't have any idea that it's possible to have such a nice park in Italy! This is incredible! This is the only one public park in good shape and really nice it exists in Italy, like parks are in the whole Europe!
  • Nice and big park in Turin. During the day is the perfect place for a walk in the nature. Be aware that at night is not so safe.
