  • ... typical Italian, with two churches that stand guard. Note however that the Café San Carlo is a worth: don't forget to check your account.

  • Walk under the arches is already a real pleasure but admire the perspective will grab you also. Turin is a beautiful city to discover in all seasons. During my previous trip, it was snowing. This time, we went through the place under the morning sun and the harmony of constructions is gratifying.
