Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy a 2-hour guided walk to discover Turin, the first capital of Italy, also known as the undisputed capital of the "Stile Liberty" in Italy. If you are passionate about the "liberty" artistic and architectural movement, you can't miss this tour!
The private tour starts from Piazza Castello, where you can already spot two famous historic cafés decorated in Art Nouveau style - the Caffè Baratti & Milano and the Caffè Mulassano. Walking along Via Pietro Micca, you will reach Palazzo Bellia. This palace was built by one of the most representative artists of the floral style, the engineer Carlo Ceppi (1829-1921) between 1892 and 1898 as part of the works that redeveloped the area at the time strongly degraded. At the end of the street, you'll see the wide Piazza Solferino: there, you can admire another work by Ceppi, the Palazzo Ceriana built according to the eclectic taste of the aristocracy and the rich city bourgeoisie. The eclecticism of the Turin artist, however, reached the highest levels in the famous Fountain of the Twelve Months and the four rivers in the Parco del Valentino.  The elements you'll see in this park represent the perfect synthesis between Liberty and Rococò nostalgia; this is where your visit ends.
