Visit the main landmarks in a 6 hour private tour
Turin's origins date back to the Roman times and even before. On this day private tour you will discover the grand history and the different phases of the city through its main landmarks in the historical centre with this enjoyable and easy walk.
The city's golden age starts in the 17th century with the Savoy family moving the capital of their duchy from Chambery, France, to Turin, and transforming it in one refined European city with magnificent palaces and squares.
Eventually, after starting small as a military settlement in Roman times, Turin became the first capital of Italy in 1861 and was home to the first Parliament of the country.
After being a hotspot during the industrial era of FIAT cars, the city gained back its pre-industrial vibe and is now regarded again as one of the most elegant and beautiful in Europe.
