  • The most beautiful Piazza in Turin. Not too large but not too small, with a lovely elegant equestrian statue in the center. Bordered by lovely arcaded shops and cafes in lovely neo-classical architecture, and two churches at one end and the glamorous Via Roma at the other. In the center of town it is a must visit when exploring the city!
  • "Il salotto di Torino" or "Torino's lounge or drawing room", as Torinesi like to say. It's the vibrant and elegant square is the very center of the city. Less formal than Piazza Castello and the Piazzetta Reale, is the ideal place for a stroll or a break in one of the several historic cafes under its porticos.
