Turin history, art & nature in one place

3 reviews
This tour is the perfect choice if you like baroque and landscape art, history, royal mansions, medieval castles and want to enjoy the riverside, squirrels and ducks in the most ancient public park of Turin.<br><br>The Valentino park is a must to see in Turin and you will appreciate it even more with someone who has been living in the city for 44 years that will show you with knowledge and humor (why not?) also more hidden spots, in addition to the main features.<br><br>It's also nice to walk alone, but with an insider's explanation, without missing even a corner and in good company, it will be quite another thing!<br><br>The park hosts the Rock Garden (crossed by paved paths, little streams, water features, terraces, contemporary sculptures), a French style baroque castle owned by the royal family, a charming Medieval Village with its artisan shops and drawbridge, the impressive Fountain of the 12 Months and much more.<br><br>Plus, each season has its own charm and you won't be disappointed even in the cold months!<br><br>I'll be also at your complete disposal for any questions about Turin/Italy: what to visit, where to eat, transport, culture, language, etc. to make your experience as useful as possible. Consider me like your LOCAL FRIEND, not a guide! <br><br>*** IMPORTANT: The visit can start between 11am and 5pm, depending on the weather, season...<br><br>THE SCHEDULE YOU SEE ONLINE IS MERELY INDICATIVE, CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING. <br><br>✓✓✓ Please WRITE to me BEFORE booking (to +39 33 94 60 48 85 or here in the Questions &amp; Answers) also since, depending on your availability and language, another day/hour would fit you better and I could ask you to change the day (the tour can be in 4 languages).

This museum is doable in an hour or two. It has richly decorated rooms, religious artwork, extensive ceramics and a nice view from it's rustic towers....which are accessible by stairs or elevator. The grand staircases near the entrance were not open the day we visited.

My mother and I visited the Palazzo Madama on August 28. The exhibitions are super and the building itself is incredible. What stood out was an incredibly helpful lady of the museum staff, who went out of her way to explain thins to us, guided us to spots we would not have seen ourselves....and simply added joy to the day of everyone she spoke to ! The people in Turin are super - thank you for your welcome and hospitality !!

I liked the baroque rooms and medieval garden of the palace. However, the art collection, especially in Baroque section lacks basic information.

Amazing building, one of the greatest in the city, and it really says a lot when you talk about Turin.

Went to spend a week with friends in Turin and visited it. Simply marvelous! The cafés at the piazza are delightful, so worth visiting. My husband and I loves it.
