What people say

"Known as the Salotto of Turin, it’s the large open piazza between the famous Porta Nuova Station and Piazza Castello. Once known as Piazza Nobile, as it was apartments of the wealthy, then as Piazza d’Armi as there was a military school. Today it takes its name from the San Carlo church, that to the right of the two. This square is known for its many historic cafes, and today you can also visit the Gallerie d’Italia by Intesa San Paolo"
"This grand pedestrian plaza, known to hold events, is surrounded by 17th-century baroque architecture and porticos with famous cafes and is connected at both ends to the shopping street, Via Roma, and Galleria San Federico."
