What you'll do

This tour is focused on the past and present beauty of Turin in terms of architecture and lifestyle for those who want to understand the charme of this (still) underrated city in only 2 hours, under the magic of the evening lights or at the lively lunch hour.

We'll visit the Medieval/Roman district, with its picturesque cobblestone streets and typical taverns, the market and its hidden gems, the oldest part of Turin and where real people live. With me you'll see a less touristic face of Turin, not easy to discovery on your own. We'll learn a lot about the city.

I recommend this tour those want to understand the city with a local Art historian who knows many fascinating stories and unique places that you couldn't otherwise find on your own.

My style is ironical, informal and interactive: forget about the guides with the umbrella, their list of dates and big groups, because I want to give 100% of my time and attention to everyone. Consider me your funny art historian and LOCAL FRIEND, not a guide!

You'll see Turin in the evening if you choose the schedule 6:30-8:30pm (or even 9-11pm), but it's also possible 11:30-1:30 and 4-6pm: WRITE me BEFORE booking to set it together.

✓✓✓ IMPORTANT: please WRITE to me BEFORE booking also since another day/hour could be better and I could ask you to change the day (the tour can be in 4 languages).

Where you'll be

We'll walk in the city center for 2 hours, with some stops at the main squares and streets (and their hidden gems) partially under the arcades (great when it rains!).

To get an idea of why this Evening tour of Turin is the most popular and imitated, take a look at some of the (more than 350) reviews, all positive, from those who have done it before.

I suggest you to join me on your very first day, to skip all tourist traps thanks to my tips.

Merci Melissoula pour ce tour de 2h au cours duquel nous avons découvert une partie de Turin dans sa dimension historique et intime. Merci pour vos explications précieuses que seule une Turinoise amoureuse de sa ville peut apporter.

Ottima esperienza, tour carino e molto curato, spiegazioni chiare e interessanti. Melissoula ha personalizzato il tour in base alle nostre esigenze sia per diversi contrattempi che abbiamo Purtroppo avuto durante il viaggio sia per quanto riguarda il contenuto della visita. È stata disponibile, attenta, precisa, e abbiamo apprezzato tantissimo la sua disponibilità a farci visitare anche luoghi personali che non erano previsti e sono risultati davvero molto interessanti. Sicuramente in caso di un nostro ritorno a Torino ci affideremo ancora a lei per altri tour.

Melissoula è stata una guida avvincente e preparatissima, ha saputo coinvolgere due ragazzini undicenni con un mix di storia, aneddoti e curiosità: anche per me è stato davvero interessante scoprire nuovi racconti su Torino. Esperienza superiore alle aspettative, grazie mille Melissoula, alla prossima!

We had a very nice two-hour visit with Melissoula who knows Turin very well. She is a woman who took us into her world and who adapted to my request from the start. I discovered Turin from another angle thanks to her knowledge and advice. I highly recommend her to you! Thanks again Melissoula

Melissoula hat uns Orte und Besonderheiten von Turin gezeigt, die uns ansonsten entgangen wären. Auf die typischen Sehenswürdigkeiten haben wir weitgehend verzichtet, dafür viel über das Leben der Leute in dieser Stadt erfahren.
