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).

It's a former prison in service for around 100 years until late 80s. I went on a Friday and the visit was in Italian. Even though I didn't understand anything and no photo is allowed, the visual shock was already unforgettable. Very warm cloth needed!

Having a few hours to fill, we decided to try the Museo del Carcere Le Nuove and boy, was it worth it. We were a small english group of 8 so had our own guide who was absolutely brilliant. The passion he had about the history of Turin and the tunnels came across and he bough everything to life. This is run by volunteers and the entrance fee was 3 eurors - it covers the cost of insurance. There is a box for donations if you wish - its worth it.

This was not a visit that had been planned but, ultimately, as second time travel to Turin, the highlight of the week. Not your 'run of the mill' prison. This is a prison where dissenters have seen time and lost theier lives. Almost all partisans during the Second World War. Their tales are harrowing and totally uplifting. The tour guides are totally invested and present professionally, seriously and academically. Highly, highly recommended as a human experience.

This site is run by volunteers who want to make clear that the in humanities of imprisonment without human contact; the imprisonment of people who are not accepted by the state (Jews, intellectuals) and the people who resist the state; can not be forgotten! This is a very profound experience! It is a guided tour in Italian! There is an English translation, that only tells part of the story! My only complaint is the 2 hour tour took 3 hours! Plan accordingly!

It could be an original idea to put a museum in a former prison. but it has also been a very formative one. I would really recommend to take the whole tour. Be careful to book it in advance!
