Designed in 1564 by Vitozzi. It's lined with porticoes and is the real heart of the city: here and hereabouts stand the great buildings that have witnessed the development of the city, from the ancient Roman era to our days. In the middle of the square stands Palazzo Madama and on the side you could see The Royal Theatre, The Royal Palace , the Royal Library (that houses Leonardo da Vinci 's operas). In Piazza Castello (The Castle Square) begin the most important central streets, like Rome Street, Po Street, Garibaldi Street and Pietro Micca Street.

A great place to start exploring an under-rated city. It has a great atmosphere and includes many of the city's best sites.

After strolling in the most agreeable Via Roma with its arches, this piazza is less impressive. Of course there are many admirable buildings and it is worth the visit.

An amazing gold encrusted palace. Needs to be the main visit of any trip to Turin. Gardens are poor but the rooms open more than make up for that.
