So breathe, close your eyes if possible and you are not doing anything else, give me your hand and let yourself be guided, we begin!
Elegant and austere, Turin boasts graceful aristocratic residences of the past, impressive Baroque palaces, rich museums and priceless monuments, making it a unique blend of ancient and modern. Turin is one of those Italian cities to be reckoned with, and rightly so. , an open-air museum: let’s walk through Piazza San Carlo, to enjoy every corner that you will see that holds surprises and wonders. Here we will be able to rest a little while watching the people go by and enjoy the fantastic bicerin, a hot non-alcoholic drink typical of Turin, made with coffee, chocolate and milk cream. Not to be missed!
So we are going to enter the twin churches of Santa Cristina and San Carlo Borromeo, baroque jewels commissioned by María Cristina of France and Carlos Manuel I of Savoy at the beginning of the 17th century.

Returning to via Roma from the opposite side of the square, we will pass by the Monumento a Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia statue, symbol of the city, known by the Turinese as “Cavàl ‘d Brons”, the bronze horse: let’s enter Piazza Castello , another of the noble places of the city, where the Palazzo Madama stands out.
Did you know that the first chocolates were invented in Turin? They were called Diablottini! In Turin, the first bar espresso coffee machine also saw the light, the steam instrument patented and built in 1884 by Angelo Moriondo, which became famous during the great Italian General Exhibition in Valentino Park and boy is the espresso delicious! !!!
Turin is pure architecture! let’s make a stop in Via Giulia di Barolo to admire the Casa Scaccabarozzi. Also known as Fetta di Polenta due to its geometry, this building designed by the architect Alessandro Antonelli is one of the most curious pieces of architecture in the city, from there we went to an old working-class neighborhood from the late 19th century, Via Giulia di Barolo, where there is the Mau, the first open-air Italian Museum of Contemporary Art in an urban center. What’s it like to walk through an art settlement with 140 works of street art? I found that in Turin there is a new way of consuming, the Green Pea project turns out to be the first ecological shopping center in the world. 72 shops designed to maximize levels of sustainability while respecting the harmony of nature, extremely interesting, right?
Did you know that the aperitif was invented in Turin? Yes, in 1787 a certain Antonio Benedetto Carpano invented vermouth and, since then, the moment of the aperitif – from 6 to 9 in the evening more or less – has become increasingly important in Turin and has spread to the rest of Italy.
