Piazza San Carlo was designed by Carlo di Castellamonte in 1642 and completed in 1650. In the middle of the piazza you’ll find the equestrian statue of Emanuele Filiberto (known to all as “El Caval èd brons”), sculpted by Carlo Marocchetti in 1838. The porticoed buildings surrounding the piazza give space to numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants.

Probably one of the most famous squares in Turin and home to the Turin cafe. Some posh shops on it and some lovely architecture. Make sure that you tread on the 'private parts' of the brass bull in the pavement for good luck. You can...More

It's a famous place very close to many other monuments... Especially the Egyptian museum. It also shows two little churches one on the opposite of the other and an impressive statue. In case of very sunny day, I recommend you to take the umbrella, because...More

A huge historic square with two twin-churces guarding one of the two main "gates". A very relaxing place as it is not crowded with restaurants or anything like that.

Another one of Turin’s more scenic city squares, lined with ornate buildings and crowned with a huge equestrian statue in the center. It’s kind of a link between the Porto Nuovo district, the Medieval quarter, and the Royal Palace area, so you’ll probably end up...More

Had lunch in the square. If you order an aperitif you get a plate of food to go with it. Some of the cafes give you a selection on a plate or some ask you to help yourself to a buffet
