Piazza San Carlo
Piazza San Carlo is one of the most important squares in the historic center of Turin.
In the center stands the monument to Emanuele Filiberto of Savoia, prince of Piedmont.
It is nicknamed by the Torinese “the living room of the city” because in the cafes under the arcades took place the Piedmont political life of the past.
The historic cafes are “Caffè San Carlo” and “Caffè Torino”, known for the small bull climbing in brass, symbol of the Piedmontese capital, set on the pavement in front of the entrance: a Turin tradition wants to trample with the foot its “attributes” brings luck.
A peculiarity of the square are the two “twin” churches on the southern side.
Piazza Palazzo di Città - Piazzetta delle erbe
Piazza Palazzo di Città is a small square in Turin located in the central part of the ancient Roman city.
Also known as the ancient “Piazza delle Erbe” for the commercial activities that took place, it houses the Palazzo Civico, seat of the local administration.
It is surrounded by an elegant arcade.
The beating heart of Turin and the vital intersection of the four main thoroughfares of the historic center, Piazza Castello is the perfect starting point to discover the city. It houses some of the main points of interest, such as the Royal Palace, the residence of the Savoy, and the Regio Theatre, the hub of Turin’s cultural life. The square is an open-air stage, with its baroque architectures and wide pedestrian spaces where citizens and tourists meet and stroll among history and beauty.
