Parco del Valentino, Turin

4.6
#1 of 12 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 park in the city of Turin. To visit with children and adults. Beautiful Valentino Castle and the medieval village (inside the Park) faithful reconstruction of a small village, but made from the late 800 and 900 beginnings. All you can go by bike or on foot. Can park nearby. Inside rented bike kind rickshaw. Also a park for kids and adult Gymnastics equipment.

  • Wonderful well maintained Park, the castle that resembles those of the Loire. Several kiosks and benches to rest and enjoy a good coffee cream. Possibility to rent bicycles and rickshaws, very funny.

  • Very calm and nice park to take a walk and relax. There's usually people sunbathing, slacklining and practicing acro-yoga around. I would have rated it 4 or even 5 stars, but the park was notably not being taken care of; the grass very long and needed to be mowed, and some spots were brown/dry. The city government should really give more maintenance to this beautiful park.
  • Without a doubt, best park in Turin. But people are scared to go there at night. Don't know why 😂
  • One of the best parks in the city - Huge green spaces to play, walk and chill. There is normally some improvised music bands playing. One of the best things of the park is that it is located right in the centre of the city and next to the river.
  • The best Park in Italy where to relax themselves, walking and if you're lucky you can observe some squirrels.
  • Turin is one of the most beautiful city in the World and Valentino's Park is just ...coloured in a different way in each season. Valentino Park is the biggest park in Turin with kilometers of running path with several cozy restaurant and bar. Is full of surprize and peacefull place. During the day is the perfect place for a walk in the nature, during the night be aware that at night is not so safe. Parco del Valentino mixes amazing features which can definitely please every kind of person, of every age. It is sportive, cultural, relaxing, eating, discovering, meeting. A place to be visited! A++++
