Torino City Tour: guided visit of Turin every Saturday afternoon with an experienced tourist guide that will let you discover the city's main attractions.

The tour starts at Piazza San Carlo: after a brief introduction we will begin the walk to the Accademia delle Scienze to pass in front of the Egyptian Museum, which hosts the largest Egyptian antique collections after that of Cairo.

We will arrive in Piazza Carignano, where the homonymous palace, home of the first Parliament of Italy, is dominated by the beautiful undulating facade, one of the most elegant squares of the city.

We will continue the walk under Liberty style Subalpina Gallery to tell the history of the Bicerin: a drink made of milk, coffee and chocolate.

Entering Piazza Castello, we will see the majestic Palazzo Madama, Palazzo Reale, a harmonious unicum with the Chiablese Gallery and the Library wing, in whose caveau jealously the self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci is preserved.

We will enter the Church of San Lorenzo, the chapel of the Royal House of Savoy, considered one out of the three hundred most beautiful churches in the world. We will finally reach the Duomo, where the Sindone, the most famous and discussed relic in the world, is guarded.
