What you can expect

Surrounded by the western Alpine area and crossed by the river Po, Torino is a jewel of baroque buildings and modern life.

We will meet at the Milano Central railway station and take the train together to Torino (approx. 1h). After arriving in Torino, we will walk along the streets towards the river Po where I point out buildings and architecture from the Art Nouveau and neo-baroque times.

Let's get a bird's view over the city. We will reach the top of Monte Cappuccini to enjoy an amazing and unforgettable panoramic view over the entire city of Torino. I will tell you stories about the city and provide you with interesting facts.

On our way around the city, we will see various symbols of the city of Torino such as the church of Gran Madre di Dio, erected in 1814 to celebrate the return of the Savoy family after the fall of Napoleon's government. We will cross the Vittorio Veneto square, the 'Turinese Movida' with plenty of bars and cafes, and continue to walk towards the historical centre.

Along the way, we will marvel at another city symbol of Turin: the architectural landmark Mole Antonelliana. We will then continue towards the heart of the city around Piazza Castello, Palazzo Reale and the Duomo of Torino. Here, you can see and learn more about the 2000 years' of history and ask me all the questions you may have.

Now, it's time to replenish our energies and enjoy a delicious lunch in the real Italian way. Let me take you to an authentic local restaurant, of course, I will recommend you some of my favorites!

Before it's time to catch the train back to Milano, we will visit Piazza San Carlo, another beautiful central street in Torino that's renowned for its elegant shops.
