Your Itinerary

Turin

(Pass by)

In just 2 hours you will see a very significant and authentic part of Turin without worrying about planning where to go, how to access certain more private places, without studying anything about Turin: I did it for you so you don't have to worry about anything , just to enjoy your visit and learn as much as possible in a relaxed way. My tour does not cover legends, magic, ghosts, etc, and please know there will be no sampling, but if you want to grab a quick grab, we can stop by quickly. The particularities of my tour compared to other tours: 1) a deep knowledge/focus on architecture 2) humor and conviviality as between friends 3) many curious anecdotes 4) access to private places away from mass tourism 5) availability even in the evening when the city is at its best 6) useful information material before and after the tour 7) assistance via WhatsApp from 12:00 to 24:00 for any advice on your trip 8) I have 4 cats who love to be pacioccati ;-)

Turin

(Pass by)

To get an idea why this tour is among the most (badly!) imitated in Turin, take a look at the (already more than 700) reviews, all positive, of those who have done it before you. At the end of the tour, you will see Turin with different eyes: it is an investment of time and money that makes the difference, not only me, but those who took the tour in the first place. Consider that even the Turinese themselves book the tour to really get to know the city in a new way or even as a gift for boyfriends, family, friends. Who are punctually enthusiastic about it, because living in a city is not enough to get to know it thoroughly and in an intriguing way. I will be at your complete disposal for any question: what to visit, where to eat, transport, culture, dialect, life in Turin... ∎ extremely fine Unfortunately we do not receive notifications of questions written here on the site, so always contact me on the W.app number 33 94 60 48 85 before booking!

This was a fantastic experience. We are getting to know Turin and this opened up so many fresh dimensions other than the obvious highlights and tourist trips. We were off the beaten path and learning all sorts of things. Melissoula truly loves Turin, and interweaves aspects of history, lifestyle, culture, and the wonderful spirit of this fascinating city. Plus she is a friendly and witty host. We highly recommend this tour for those who want to better know Turin at a deeper level.

Phenomenal two hours spent with a new friend. What a delight! we learned so much, saw things we would have never seen and enjoyed Melissoula’s passion for Turin. She had photos to augment what we saw and pointed out details that enriched the discussion. I’d sign up for any tour she offered. Highly recommend you book with her. And have dinner after the tour at the unnamed place at the Square she recommends. GREAT food at a bargain price.

we booked this tour last minute and it was the highlight of our trip!! If you are thinking of booking a walking tour in Turin this is the one to book - so interesting and wasn’t a boring tour of the monuments but hidden parts that really opened our eyes to how great this city is. Melissoula is a great tour guide very knowledgeable and so interested and passionate about the city. 100% recommend!!!

I did this fantastic tour with Melissoula yesterday. I would really recommend it for anyone who has never been to Torino - you'll fall in love with the city. I am already looking forward to going back =) Melissoula is super professional, a friendly and fun person to walk around with for 3.5 hours. She took us to places we would have never found ourselves and shared fun facts and interesting stories about the city. For me it was particularly interesting to find out a lot about the architecture of the city - incredible!

Our 3.5 hour private walking tour with Melissoula went by quickly. That's because she took us to places we never would have found on our own and explained the history of the city in a very entertaining way. She a gem as a tour guide and we would highly recommend her to others who are "curious travellers" because they want to see more than just the main tourist attractions. Brava Melissoula. Sei forte!

Mellissoula is the star of this show. Very knowledgeable, irreverent in a very good way, and a keen judge of what will be interesting to her tour groups.

Wandering around in a city without a guide has no point! Melissoula was the ultimate guide for the city of Turin! You will learn many interesting things for the city gems and if you are lucky as we were you will meet interesting people from the group! Hope the best for you Melissoula and if you happen to travel to our city we will be glad to return the favor!

I was really glad I took this tour, especially as it came at the beginning of my trip to Turin. Walking around with Marzia is a great way to get to know the city, to get an idea of things you'd like to explore further, and to see things that you likely wouldn't notice otherwise. (Cannonballs! Cafe d'orzo! Ancient underground coolers!) Marzia clearly knows her stuff, even when it comes to little-known corners of the city. I wouldn't have had nearly the understanding of the city that I came away with if I hadn't taken the tour. Highly recommended.

The 4 hour tour with Melissoula showed us different eras of Torino history through particular areas of the city. We learnt a lot of the city’s history with many interesting stories, visits to churches, historic cafes, Roman sites and the narrow streets of the Quadrilatero area. While 4 hours seems long for a walking tour, we enjoyed every aspect of the tour, and completing it after dark added a new dimension, particularly with the special light installations on display in different areas. Altogether very well planned and executed. Melissoula was friendly, responsive to our questions and very knowledgeable. A highly recommended introduction to Torino history, architecture and culture.

We didn’t know what to expect on this tour but we had a wonderful time with Marzia. She took us places we didn’t expect we’d go. As explained, unusual places and regular tourist places alike. But she spun tales about the city that we quite enjoyable. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Turin. One of our best tours this trip.
