  • Turin: Magic Tour

    2. Turin: Magic Tour

    Turin is known for many things: the Olympics and the Shroud of Turin among them, but did you know there's also a darker side lurking underneath this UNESCO capital? For 2.5 hours you will be plunged into this darker underbelly of the city of two souls. Along your Magic Turin tour, you will explore the two souls of Turin: one linked to white magic, the other to evil, or black magic. Your guide will explain to you, starting at the Piazza Statuto, how this "darkness" came over the city. During Roman times, this ancient burial site became the center of scary stone monsters, sinister architecture and unusual statues that stand side by side some of the more gentle giants, such as the Duomo and Holy Shroud. So, if you're looking for a different side of Turin, come and discover the place considered the epicenter of occultism.

    Che dire... Esperienza magica! Il tour molto interessante ti porta a scoprire lati nuovi della città, a vedere Torino sotto una luce diversa, a prendere consavolezza della nostra storia e delle leggende metropolitane che si celano dietro di essa.
