Baroque Square on Turin's Fashionable Via Roma. Highlighted by an equestrian statue of Emmanuel Philibert, Duke of Savoy, and surrounded by porticos designed by Carlo di Castellamonte. We had the wonderful milk-chocolate-espresso concoction bicerin at a cafe on the northwest corner of the square.

One of the principal piazzas of Turin. Stylish, and a number of good cafes around the outside. Great for people watching in the sunshine.
