This is one of the places you need to see from Turin. There is ta great and big statue in the centre. There are some banks to sit in and there is almost always something going on: spectacles, street musicians, etc. You will find it on the centre of the city

A great place to watch people, cafe's and bars along the edges, but what is almost a crime is the Roman archives buried undfer the cobbles, they were exposed a few years ago for investigation then recovered, a shame.
