A lovely, large park with many interesting little nooks and crannies of interest for viewing and photography. The views of the Po are beautiful, and the castle is interesting as well.

A great place to go when you have had enough of looking at buildings. Rent a family bike, go round the 19th-century built medieval village (there was a salami stand when we went - just what we needed to get us to dinner time) and watch the canoeists on the River Po.

The Parco del Valentino is really several parks rolled into one huge green space sloping down to the River Po. There are manicured landscaped sections complete with ornamental sculpture and open spaces where you can see people exercising and guys playing football, cafes and the Borgo Medievale, a charming 19th century reconstruction of a Piedmontese village. It really is a... More

I visited Parco Valentino for the last stop on my short visit to Turin, as it was the first day of the Slow Food festival. During my visit the entire park was obviously full of people visiting the festival, which showcases food from all the various areas of Italy, and then all across the world. Nearly every country was represented,... More

We went to the park on a hot midday to find some shade by the river and somewhere to sit and enjoy the scenery. We did not find it here. There were several groups of boys or men who looked quite menacing, very few seats and nowhere to just sit and relax. Certainly there was nowhere to sit near the... More

This is a busy park on the outskirts of the city that is teaming with life in summer! It has bikes to hire and boasts a lot of open space for children to play sports and couples to relax in.

Huge park where you can walk and spend many hours. Its shame that visit to the castle is not posible. Rent a bike for better expirience.

Really nice find in middle of Turin. Lots to look at, old gorgeous trees, several kids play areas. Possible to hire bikes and have a little ride around the park. Gardens botanical to visit. The castle Valentino is lovely to see too.
