Nice place, a lot of stores but not a lot of restaurants. Most places are closed at 20:00 so plan your evening

When first in Turin, walk to the Piazza San Carlo and immerse yourself. You can enjoy present day Turin and be part of its history at the same time. Stop at Cafe Savoie for a delicious Bicerin. Watch the locals taking their morning stroll.

The piazza and arcades in Turin are beautiful especially at night when lights on and few people around. Great atmosphere Too bad shops close so early and closed so long in afternoon
