Owner description: Piazza San Carlo was designed by Carlo di Castellamonte in 1642 and completed in 1650. In the middle of the piazza you’ll find the equestrian statue of Emanuele Filiberto (known to all as “El Caval èd brons”), sculpted by Carlo Marocchetti in 1838. The porticoed buildings surrounding the piazza give space to numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants.

“what a lively place on Sunday evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

During the day, a vast nearly empty square, but comes alive in the evening. Ringed by elegant cafes and at least one fantastic chocolate store (since 1836) with all the local specialties.

“Awesome and wonderful .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Probably one of the most beautiful place in the centre of Turin, really close to the main street (Roma ave), pretty big and cool. You can see nice building next to the square . You gotta stop there

Stroll around this ancient Piazza and enjoy a nice cup of Italian coffee in one of its surrounding cafés. Nice photo spots too!
