What to see in Turin in a day

How to spend a day enjoying #UndertheskyofTurin?
We'll tell you what to do in Turin in 24 hours!


Morning: art, culture, relax and tasting!

Start the day with a tasty breakfast, choose one of our famous historical cafes or one of our famous pastry shops in the city. If you only have one day in Turin, you can’t miss its elegant squares, the famous and unique arcades (18 km long) and the galleries. Admire its architecture: from the Roman ruins of Augusta Taurinorum to modern and contemporary installations, passing through Romanesque, Baroque and Art Nouveau...

If, on the other hand, you are looking for relax, the Valentino Park is the ideal choice: very close to the centre, on the left bank of the river Po, it offers vast green areas and the splendid Borgo Medievale (Medieval Village) built towards the end of the 19th century for the Italian General Exhibition. You can visit these places alone or rely on an expert tour guide! Write to resguide@turismotorino.org to book your own tour or have a look at the many proposals of our operators.

Don't forget one of the biggest markets in Europe: Porta Palazzo: get lost among the colours of the stalls and stop for a break at the Mercato Centrale.


Don't know what to eat in Turin? Discover the typical dishes of Piedmont or choose among the many gastronomic proposals. If you are a street food lover, you can’t miss the large outdoor areas in the most beautiful squares of the city or in the narrow alleys... Turin is full of hidden corners to discover.

Afternoon: shopping and more!

Treat yourself to some shopping strolling through the most beautiful streets of Turin: from the arcades of Via Roma to the luxury brands of Via Lagrange and Via Garibaldi.

Treat yourself to a bicerin in one of our many historic cafés or to a rich Merenda Reale in one of the bars that serve it (some serve it every day). And don't forget to try the delicious flavours of our homemade ice cream.

The day is about to end: enjoy the colours of the sunset from Monte dei Cappuccini or take the historic funicular that connects Turin to the Basilica of Superga.

It's time for an aperitif!

Turin is the birthplace of Vermouth and of the aperitif!
End the day with this typical ritual in one of the many places in the Quadrilatero, San Salvario or Piazza Vittorio Veneto
