A big, beautiful square with design very specific to Turin. Heavily exposed to the sun but luckily all the arched paths that surround the square are shady and lovely to walk along.

One of the most classic squares in Italy. Surrounded by beautiful buildings and perfectly cobbled lanes. In the late afternoon grab an Aperol Spritz, and watch as business people rush by and well-heeled locals meet on their way out.

One of the main squares in Turin and a truly must-see location. There is a Emmanuel Philibert equestrian statue in the center which is also great. Very good.
Although this square is lined on both sides with high end shops, the square itself is beautiful and if you continue to follow it will lead you straight to the palace. If you walk along the little side streets good deals and fun shops can...More
