Caffè Torino

The caffè and bars are typical meeting places for the Torinesi. There are quite a number of historical caffè around the Turin center which offer good foods and elegante decorations to charm the people touring in the center.

Caffè Torino is one of the historical Caffè.

The Caffè Torino is now almost a hundred years old. It still maintains the original furnishings and decorations, which look as good today as they did when the Caffè Torino opened.

Outside the entrance of the caffè, there is a bronze figure of a bull (symbol of Turin) on the floor, it is believed that by stepping onto the testicles of the bull would bring good luck for the whole day.
