It is a lovely square lined with upscale boutiques, the well preserved Baroque style buildings surrounding the square makes one to note that Turin has been once the capital City of Italy.

Turin's New Year's Eve public celebration took place in Piazza San Carlo. It was lively, well protected by police, and did not get out of hand. We enjoyed it.

This square is really nice, the two churches next to each other looked nice. I spend my New Year's Eve there, if I could I would definitely do that again

This is one of the places you need to see from Turin. There is ta great and big statue in the centre. There are some banks to sit in and there is almost always something going on: spectacles, street musicians, etc. You will find it on the centre of the city
