Torino architectural landmarks can be seen if you walk along Via Roma from the train station to Piazza Castello and then take Via Po down to the river. One will be tempted many times along the way by a variety of things – smell of espresso coffee, colorful gelato displays, high fashion boutiques full of latest designs. Most of this route passes through streets covered with beautiful arches that extend from the buildings. These arches provide excellent protection from either heat or rain and make it a distinct Turin feature.
