An itinerary that winds through the heart of the historic city centre of Turin, alternating secondary alleys with some of the most famous squares, proceeding towards the area of the Jewish ghetto: along the way, our guide will let you discover an interesting collection of historical workshops and access gates to the courtyards of palaces, most of them dating back to the 17th century, enriched by surprising symbolic masks, cherubs and animal figures.We will stop at some cafes, groceries and trimming shops, most of which are still original, we will decipher the architectural and decorative elements present both outside and inside, on counters, shelves, chandeliers and in pottery for the preservation of ointments, spices and medicines as in the case of the ancient drugstores. In the streets which were once part of the Jewish ghetto some wrought-iron gates can still be seen in buildings with one more floor than the neighboring houses although being of the same height.
