What You Can Expect

Walking Tour of Turin Including Palazzo Carignano Guided Visit

Admire the Holy Shroud in this walking tour around Turin

Head to Piazza Castello to meet up with your guide for this history-packed 2.5-hour tour of Turin. The first capital of Italy, Torino, as the Italians call it, is packed with palaces, churches and ornate centuries-old buildings. And after it hosted the Winter Olympics in 2006, the city is spruced up and more gleaming than ever. Home to Fiat, Juventus Football Club and the Holy Shroud, Turin is an exciting place to discover. 

Let your guide take you around the compact city center, checking out the 16th-century Palazzo di Reale, home to the former Duke of Saxony. Learn about the history of the building and hear incredible historical anecdotes. If the group you're touring Turin with has more than six people, wear headphones so you can hear your guide better. At some point, stop into a caffe to sample a Bicerin, a drink native to Turin that is made up of hot drinking chocolate, coffee and milk. 

After you've warned up by drinking a Bicerin, stroll over to the Cathedral of John the Baptist, home of the famed Holy Shroud, the piece of cloth that supposedly had covered Jesus Christ in his tomb. On rare occasions the Shroud is displayed here. If it's not on display during your visit, head over to the Church of San Lorenzo where a copy is on display. 

Walk over to 17th-century Palazzo Carignano, discovering the ground floor rooms where was born the first King of Italy and then, near the Art Nouveau-accented Mole Antonelliana, home of the National Museum of Cinema, the tour ends.

We would highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide was Emanuela, she was excellent! The Bicerin which is local favorite, coffee, milk and chocolate at Baratti and Milano was delicious, this was included in the price of the tour. Emanuel suggested Cafe San Marco for lunch which was amazing. The decor was absolutely beautiful, very historic.

WOW! What a fantastic time... we happened to be the only two that day, so we had a private tour with Fluvia..spelling might be incorrect...but she was amazing! Her knowledge of the city and its history were mind boggling...and because it was just two of us, we went off the beaten track just a bit...ending the tour with a complimentary coffee! Wonderful, thank you!!!

We had a terrific three-hour walking tour and learned a lot about the city, some of its key buildings, and history. There were only four in our group, so it was quite relaxing and engaging. The Shroud of Turin was being shown publicly during our stay this only rarely occurs, but it was not part of the tour and required us booking it separately on our own.

The tour and guide were exceptional. We had no idea of Turin's historical significance. The palace is beautiful and nicely kept. We had the opportunity to see the Shroud of Turin even though it was a bit of a distance, but in the church. The cathedral was amazing! The coffee/ chocolate was a delight too.
