Day 35

I had to run some errands down town today so I had the opportunity to get some photos of a couple of my favorite places in the city center.

The Galleria Subalpina, built in 1874 in Art Nouveau style. On the right is the elegant caffè Baratti, where you can get amazing chocolate.

Torino has many beautiful squares but Piazza San Carlo must be one of the most important. There are a couple of famous cafès under the porticoes and it is really nice to sit outside in the summertime, although the prices are the highest you can find in Torino.
