  • In the middle of Via Roma, create a space in which you can sit and possibly take advantage of the bars under the very stately arcades. Often also stage of many street artists

  • A perfect example of Turin's unique architecture. An extraordinary place worth the trip. The equestrian monument in the middle of the square looks at the Palazzo dell'Academia delle Scienze of the 17th with two beautiful churches on its back to the south. Bef walking around the square is a pure delight.
