There is a unique character to Turin in the evening; free from the crowds and illuminated by the moon. This two hour tour with a local guide will give you an even greater appreciation for the history and monuments of this incredible city. Your guide will meet you in front of the Duomo, where you can marvel at the beautiful Renaissance facade. Crossing Piazza Castello, you will continue under the arcades on Via Garibaldi, before reaching Turin’s most famous landmark - the Mole Antonelliana, all the more impressive in the light of the moon.
Next you’ll walk along Via Po to a district synonymous with Turin’s nightlife; Vanchiglia. Here, in one of the many bars, you will have the opportunity to taste a glass of vermouth, as well as learn the proper way to toast in Italy! The vibrant atmosphere of this neighbourhood is irresistible and no doubt once the tour is over, you’ll stick around for some more vermouth!
Viewing a city in the evening, when the sun goes down and the lights come on, illuminating the monuments, is always a worthwhile experience. It gives you the opportunity to see the city in a different light, away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. This tour will allow you to get a feel for the night-time atmosphere of the city, and is also a great way to immerse yourself in the nightlife like a local. The tour will last for two hours, and begins in the Piazza Castello, where some of Turin’s greatest attractions will be illuminated - the Royal Palace, the beautiful Palazzo Madama and the imposing Duomo – giving each of them an ethereal elegance and charm. During the tour, your local guide will talk you through some of the history of Turin, and even teach you some words in Italian!
As you walk along Via Garibaldi, you will hear about the unification of Italy and the role of Giuseppe Garibaldi, who has a street named in his honour in every town and city in Italy. You will then arrive at Turin’s famous Mole Antonelliana, a striking architectural accomplishment, named after its designer, Antonelli, who was commissioned to build a Synagogue, but his creation then became a symbol of Italian unification. The building is now home to the Cinema Museum and, by taking the lift you can reach the top, for a breathtaking view of the city below. Not far from the Mole Antonelliana lies the district of Vanchiglia, the heart of the city’s nightlife. Here you’ll see the piazza Santa Giulia, which is effectively a large open-air bar. You won’t be able to resist sampling some vermouth and allowing yourself to relax amidst the vibrant, energetic atmosphere. It is here, after a short walk in the neighbourhood that your guide will say goodbye, but we are sure you will want stay here to drink and chat!
