Turin: Magic Tour
- Duration options: 2 - 2.5 hours
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.

Very interesting stories, a few twists and an excellent guide. I will try for future tours. Even the excellent organization (I quickly and easily recovered a suspended tour due to bad weather).
Walking through Turin at night with a guide who knows how to make the magic of yesteryear and current live is a worthwhile experience. It was a pleasure the night walk.
Congratulations on your professionalism, competence on the subject and kindness. I will be happy and curious for other tours.
