Full description

Begin your experience in the morning by walking through the city center of Turin. Discover the city's highlights and main monuments, listening to the guide as they explain how the city was built throughout the centuries. Your guide talks with you about the main sites, including Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Madama, and San Lorenzo Church. This first part of the tour then ends at the Mole Antonelliana, a symbol of the city with its unforgettable shape. Following a small break for free time, re-group with your guide to enter the Royal Palace. This palace was the old residence of the Savoia family, who reigned throughout the entire duration of the monarchy in Italy. Whilst at the palace, see the main rooms where the Savoia lived, and enter the Chapel of the Holy Shroud - the facility where the Shroud was housed for a long time. To complete your experience, enter the Egyptian Museum - a must-see attraction of Turin. There your guide tells you about the ancient Egyptian history and culture as you pass mummies, sarcophagi, sphinxes, and other different findings.

wonderful day, our guide Sofia was fantastic, despite the busy day she didn't make us bored for a second, engaging, prepared, nice. We are so fond of Sofia that we will miss her. As for the tour we have seen everything that can be seen in Turin, the times are perfectly marked. Thanks to this tour Turin has a different flavor now. Highly recommended, believe us you will not regret it!

Perfect organization and timing. The guide welcomed us with punctuality and great courtesy and accompanied us to discover Turin in all its secrets. In one day we were able to see the whole city completely and to know its history. The highly trained and passionate guide of his city did not spare himself in the explanations, managing to involve even the children present.

A beautiful experience. Our guide Sofia was very good, prepared, competent and nice. After the meeting we walked around Turin for about 2h, admiring the main beauties, Sofia made us take a balance back in time, live in the time of the Savoy, see glimpses and told hidden peculiarities of its monuments, squares and historical places where the history of Italy was made. We had about 1 h for lunch and at 13:30 we started visiting the Royal Palace, exited we went to the Egyptian museum. It's a full day tour, a little tiring but totally worth it. Having been in Turin just for a weekend we couldn't have been more fortunate to have caught Sofia as a guide who showed us the beautiful and elegant Turin in a whole day. Absolutely recommended!
