    Paola P Says:

    The classic postcard image of Turin is the one showing Valentino park and its medieval village. The park is located on the left bank of the river Po, between the monumental bridges of Umberto I (Corso Vittorio Emanuele II) and Isabella (Dante). You can choose from a variety of activities here — walking, jogging, cycling — or simply lie down under a tree and watch the world go by. The area is also part of historical Turin, with its castle, medieval village, and fountains.

    Parco della Pellerina is one of Turin's two large parks situated on the banks of the river Dora — here you'll find natural and artificial lakes bursting with wildlife (mallards, coots, turtles, etc.), plus sports facilities and a picnic area equipped for barbecues.

    Right in the center of Turin, behind the Royal Palace, you'll find the beautiful Royal Gardens (I Giardini Reali). This green area was modeled in the French style and is a lovely venue for outdoor exhibitions and concerts in the summer months.

    You can happily spend an entire day here — walking, cycling, visiting the old royal palace, and exploring the historic farm buildings, which include stables and a small carriages museum. The visitor center, where you can find maps and information about the natural heritage of the park, make a great starting point. Plus, there's a good coffee shop for when you have finished exploring.

    While not a dedicated outdoor space as such, Murazzi del Po is the place to head to in Turin for unbeatable views of the Po river. Plus, when the sun goes down, it transforms into a famous nightlife spot.

    • On the San Giovanni holiday (24th June), this is a great site from which to watch the fireworks.
