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.

Great to have some grass amid the city, along with some hill/river/grassy/church views, and a perfect place to chill with a book and other sunbathers and dog walkers after the riverside walk down... more »
This is a nice breakout space to let you little ones wear themselves out a bit in some green space. Added bonus is a playground, places where you can rent the chuckle brother type of bike cars (no idea what they’re called!) places by the river to buy an ice cream and there was also a little fair on when we went for under 5s that had a little carousel, mini roller coaster, bumper cars etc €5 for 4 tickets. Plenty of space for a picnic and you can also head to the botanical gardens or the medieval castle as well.
Spreading over 42 hectares, the Valentino Park is a popular picnic or stroll spot for Turinese families. For you it will be an opportunity for a nice walk in the shades, or along the Po river. Perfect to enjoy a bit of freshness!
