Piazza Castello is the main square, the heart of Turin. In this big square you will find Palazzo Madama, the Royal Palace and the Teatro Regio. Here also was staged the podium where athletes were rewarded during the 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

Maybe the most famous square in Torino with the entrance of Royal Palace and the Armery. Historic cafes around such as Baratti

Piazza San Carlo sarà il salotto della città, ma Piazza Castello è comunque la piazza principale, il cuore di Torino. Qui si trovano Palazzo Madama, il Palazzo Reale e il Teatro Regio. Qui venivano premiati gli atleti durante le Olimpiadi del 2006.

Si tratta della piazza più importante di tutta Torino, situata nel pieno centro storico, a ridosso delle più importanti destinazioni turistiche della città.
Proprio in questa piazza s'incontrano le quattro vie pedonali più importanti, parlo di Via Garibaldi, Via Po, Via Roma e Via Micca. Potrei anche dire che tutte le strade a Torino portano a Piazza Castello e non mi sbaglierei.
Su questa Piazza si affacciano le facciate di quelli che di Torino sono i palazzi più belli, come Palazzo Madama, il Palazzo della Prefettura ed il Teatro Regio.
Ottimo posto per prendere un aperitivo la sera o semplicemente passeggiare.
