Visit the main landmarks in a 2 hour private tour
Turin's origins date back to the Roman times and even before. On this 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.
The exact itinerary can be customized to fit your interests.
We'll start from the beating heart of Turin: Piazza Castello, where you'll admire the exterior of the Royal Palace, Palazzo Madama, and the Church of Saint Lawrence. We'll follow for the Cathedral that is home to the Holy Shround, the most important relic for Christians and we'll have a good look at the best kept Roman Gate in the whole world. Then, we'll follow the steps of the Royal house of the Savoy's family under the elegant arcades reaching for the baroque architecture all around us, and we'll finish the tour at the main landmark, the Mole Antonelliana.
The tour runs hail or shine.
Takes place mainly outdoors, with a couple of stops indoors, the path is partially covered under the arches.

Carlotta was very easy to work with. She was able to recommend a secure parking lot in Turin for our vehicle and meet us at the lot. From that moment on our tour was well manged, non stop, informative and interesting. There was a large group and she held our attention and kept us moving. It is obvious she likes what she does and her love of the city came through. I would highly recommend her.
