Walking southwest along the Po river brings you to Castello del Valentino (closed to the public), a mock chateau built in the 17th century. The 550,000 sq-metre French-style Parco Valentino surrounding the chateau opened in 1856 and is filled with joggers, promenaders and cafes night and day (though take care on your own here late at night).
The Giardino Reale, east of Piazza Castello, was designed in 1697 by André le Nôtre, who also created the gardens at Versailles.
