VISIT TURIN

by Vespa

When you think of Turin, does the following come to mind:  an industrial city, the city of Fiat, a grey city? And then you ask yourself:  what is there to do in Turin? Stop right there and rewind. The Savoy capital has profoundly changed.

Turin is a city waiting to be discovered, constantly on the move and continuously being transformed.  It has become a food and wine lovers destination thanks to Eataly, Salone del Gusto and Mercato Centrale. At the same time, it is home to gourmet cuisine with its seven Michelin starred restaurants

After hosting the Winter Olympics in 2006 it has also become the capital of world sport.  It is the second home of Cristiano Ronaldo who now lives here with his family. In addition, in 2021 it will also host the ATP Finals, the most important event for tennis lovers.

Culture, food and wine and sport are now the masters along with the legendary Vespa. 

In fact, Turin is incredibly Vespa friendly: from the centre to the outskirts you can easily cover the distances by scooter. From Piazza Castello, one of the great squares that is a ‘must’ to visit up to Venaria Palace, a gem at the gates of Turin, it only takes 20 minutes on a Vespa disregarding the amount of traffic.

What can you visit in

TURIN ON A VESPA?

Strap on your helmet – we are ready to start. Visiting Turin on a Vespa means choosing a means of transport which is suitable for this city.  Its streets, tree-lined avenues and roads that run alongside the Po River can all be travelled on your Vespa.

Where to start from?

From the centre of course!  Don’t worry there are no congestion zones in the city that forbid travel on scooters.  Awaiting you here are the Mole Antonelliana, a symbol of Turin, which houses the Cinema Museum and the Egyptian Museum, second in the world for its collections of findings. The city squares will also offer you a great welcome. Piazza San Carlo is the living room of Turin: noble and elegant from the Savoy period. In the middle proudly stands the beautiful equestrian monument, the Caval d’brons, one of the city’s symbols and under the arcades are the greatest fashion designer shops interspersed with historic cafés where you can enjoy an aperitif at the end of the day. 

Then, in the blink of an eye, you come to Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the square with the biggest porticoes in Europe, a terrace overlooking the city.  From here you can admire the Gran Madre Church, the hill and on the top the SupergaFinally, all you must do is visit Piazza Castello, Palazzo Madama and the Royal Palace with its sumptuous gardens and then down to Piazza Solferino and Piazza Statuto. The latter has always been shrouded in mystery due to the stories that concern the monument that stands in the centre of the square. Moving around on a Vespa is fast:  get on, make your visits, get back on and head off towards infinity and…

In addition to the centre of Turin, where can I go on a Vespa?

Turin is not just a city centre, it is much, much more.  Get back on your Vespa and set off again: up and down the hill and on up to the Superga from where you can admire the city in all its splendour. Leave Superga, continue down along the banks of the Po River towards Venaria Palace. This stop is a ‘must’: the palace is not a “small Versailles”, the Palace is the Palace:  a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its unique and impressive history. It is the story of its rebirth from the dark ages, the story of an architectural restoration that has brought a jewel back into the light and is visited by thousands of people every year. From here you can easily reach the Juventus Stadium on your Vespa, the “home” of Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo. The stadium is located on the street and is a very interesting place to visit for sports lovers.
