  • one of the most beautiful salons of Turin: so you define many piazzas of this city. Full of characteristic cafes, now the undisputed symbols of elegance, opens up into a huge area.

  • Piazza san carlo is one of the most beautiful and large squares of the city. The long porch that runs on the sides allows you to cross it even if it's raining or snowing but it is nice to be able to enjoy everything from central square for a glance on the streets and buildings that surround it.

  • One of the most beautiful squares in Europe, sin is the haunt of Juventus fans that spoil the story. Nice to see all year, even in the rain.

  • 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.
