A leisurely walk and relaxing stops to drink a hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream, or sip your favourite aperitivo in one of the lively historical cafés nestled beneath the 18-kilometre snake of porticos or located in one of the many squares will make for an unforgettable day out in the Savoy capital.
Locals are very proud of their historic cafés, all of them looking exactly as they did two centuries ago.


Nestling under the arcades of the city center are the "historical cafès" of Torino with their original, elegant decor. Each of them specializes in a signature product: ice-cream, aperitivo shortly before a main meal to stimulate your appetite, sandwiches or "panini" as we call them here, miniature pastries, "Gianduja" chocolate in either of its manifestations.
