Tour features
Departure from ANTICA VILLA COLONIA with private transfer.

Meet your local guide and start your journey to discover the city Centre. The tour starts from the ancient Roman Porte Palatine (“Palatine Gates”) and Theatre. You will then reach the Quadrilatero to admire some medieval buildings and the Duomo, a sober, late 15th century building of Renaissance architecture. Afterwards, the tour will continue with the fine examples of Baroque architecture in Turin, built according to the wishes of Christine of France, the first Madama Reale (Madame Royale): you will see the beautiful Piazza San Carlo (“St Charles’ Square”), that is the “the heart of the city”, and its spectacular twin churches, which serve as a scenic backdrop to the square.
Walking through the central Via Roma, which was restored around 1930, you will arrive in Piazza Castello (“Castle Square”): the political hub of the Kingdom of Savoy. There you will find the Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale), the Royal Armoury (Armeria Reale), the Royal Library (Biblioteca Reale) -where some of Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings, such as his famous self-portrait, are kept- and the Royal Theatre (Teatro Regio). The central square is dominated by Palazzo Madama (“Madame Palace”), an ancient Roman Gate later turned into a medieval castle and finally into the luxurious residence of Christina of France: a building that encompasses seven centuries of history!!!
Afterwards, you will discover Turin’s examples of Renaissance architecture. Your guide will show you Piazza Carignano (“Carignano Square”): the Palace which hosted the first parliament of Italy, after Italian’s unification, and where the protagonists of the Italian Risorgimento epic – Charles Albert and Victor Emmanuel II – were born.
Along the way, you will also pass the well-known historic cafés, architectural jewels of Art Nouveau.

Lunch in a typical piedmontese restaurant.

Your tour will start with the visit of the Reggia di Venaria (Palace of Venaria): declared part of the World Heritage by UNESCO, this palace has been recently brought back to its ancient splendour thanks to careful restoration work of both the interior and its gardens. The Palace of Venaria is made up of the Hall of Diana (Salone di Diana), the Great Gallery (Grande Galleria), the Church of St Hubert (Cappella di Sant’Uberto) and the Juvarra Stables (Scuderie Juvarriane), that is some of the finest examples of universal Baroque.
You will have the chance to go on a gentle, relaxing walk across the Gardens. As your guide will explain to you, the royal gardens were completely destroyed during Napoleonic occupation and were re-opened to the public only in 2007 following restoration work. What you see today is a reconstruction of the former royal gardens, reproducing the16th century layout and landscape.
