Overview
The Unusual tour is the most complete and informative walking tour (4 hours) through the touristic and non-touristic spots of Turin: historical cafes, noble buildings, authentic places with traditions and intriguing stories, hidden gems, private residential courtyards, "unexpected" churches with their treasures. - Why is there a "devil" in the Royal Church? - Where's "Mussolini's finger"? - Why are there 18 km of underground tunnels and arcades? - Have you ever heard about Turin's tragedy? My style is ironical, informal, friendly and with an interactive point of view, for curious people who want to be amazed by the city...like you! Forget about the guides with an umbrella, their list of dates and big groups, because I want to give 100% of my attention to everyone. Consider me like your LOCAL FRIEND, with whom you can also joke and have fun, more than a guide! I recommend this tour for those want to understand the city with a local who knows many fascinating stories and unique places that you could not otherwise find. Do not just expect to walk and listen: get ready to chat, discuss the past, present and future of Turin, way beyond what's on the surface, in a journey backwards from 2020 to 15 BC! ✓✓✓ Please WRITE to me BEFORE booking (to +39 33 94 60 48 85 or here in the Q&A section) since, depending on your time availability and language, another day/hour would fit you better (the tour can be in 4 languages) and I could ask you to change day. I will answer as soon as I can!

I was really glad I took this tour, especially as it came at the beginning of my trip to Turin. Walking around with Marzia is a great way to get to know the city, to get an idea of things you'd like to explore further, and to see things that you likely wouldn't notice otherwise.

Marzia (Mart-z-ah) is friendly, knowledgeable, and native to Turin. To have the opportunity to stroll around with her guidance was key and allowed our quick visit to feel complete. We were joined by our 16 year old and all three of us agreed that Marzia's informative

4 hours flew by with such a flow of rich information and so many interesting places to see, some of them hidden in plain site. I loved the church of San Lorenso with the secret murals only visible on the equinox and the royal library complete with secret panel. Thank you so much

Marzia is very professional, king and lively. She knows Turin as only a local does. She shows you a lot putting you at your ease, so that you won't never feel tired or bored. Many tips, pearls, stories and anecdotes. Highly recommended excellent value for money.

Marzia was the complete opposite of an impersonal tour guide reciting a script - she was knowledgeable, open to questions and just really friendly. The relaxed style of this tour was exactly what I was looking for. If you're thinking of taking a tour, take this one!
