Turin history, art & nature in one place

3 reviews
This tour is the perfect choice if you like baroque and landscape art, history, royal mansions, medieval castles and want to enjoy the riverside, squirrels and ducks in the most ancient public park of Turin.<br><br>The Valentino park is a must to see in Turin and you will appreciate it even more with someone who has been living in the city for 44 years that will show you with knowledge and humor (why not?) also more hidden spots, in addition to the main features.<br><br>It's also nice to walk alone, but with an insider's explanation, without missing even a corner and in good company, it will be quite another thing!<br><br>The park hosts the Rock Garden (crossed by paved paths, little streams, water features, terraces, contemporary sculptures), a French style baroque castle owned by the royal family, a charming Medieval Village with its artisan shops and drawbridge, the impressive Fountain of the 12 Months and much more.<br><br>Plus, each season has its own charm and you won't be disappointed even in the cold months!<br><br>I'll be also at your complete disposal for any questions about Turin/Italy: what to visit, where to eat, transport, culture, language, etc. to make your experience as useful as possible. Consider me like your LOCAL FRIEND, not a guide! <br><br>*** IMPORTANT: The visit can start between 11am and 5pm, depending on the weather, season...<br><br>THE SCHEDULE YOU SEE ONLINE IS MERELY INDICATIVE, CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING. <br><br>✓✓✓ Please WRITE to me BEFORE booking (to +39 33 94 60 48 85 or here in the Questions &amp; Answers) also since, depending on your availability and language, another day/hour would fit you better and I could ask you to change the day (the tour can be in 4 languages).

Torino sits in a cup of green hills on one side and white alps visible on the other. Spent a day in the hills with friends of a friend. Gorgeous old mansions, gigantic trees, winding roads, a mother wild boar followed by her babies crossing the road under a full moon.

If you get a mountain bike this is the place. Few cities in Italy offer the possibility of going downhill... If it has rained wait for at least 3 days, because otherwise it will be muddy.

The views make the effort worth it, not easy to reach but if you have time to go, enjoy the view and take photos.

If you are lucky enough, during windy days, when there are no clouds and smog from the city, you can admire all the frontline of the Alps, West to East. You can see entrance to the Valley of Susa that is the main passage to reach France territory, and right on the left top peak, the Sacra of San Michele religious complex (a visit that I suggest to appreciate its beautiful architecture). Also visible mount Musinè and Monviso; below, the Castle of Rivoli, once Residence of the Royal House of Savoy, now guesting the Museum of Contemporary Arts of Turin. And the many other sites as the Mole Antonelliana in the centre. Awfully enough, this sight has been damaged permanently from the building of a couple of new skycrapes (wich I will not mention to not give them free publicity); so, if you intend to take a clean panorama picture, you should edit with Photoshop later on... Night vision as well, offer a fashinating sight with all the illuminated places (you will notice the largest street of the city, Corso Francia, that reach straight the city of Rivoli).
