Let's explore together the provinces of Turin and Biella.
Green Turin: nature in the parks of the city and surroundings
Turin is rich in nature and greenery, so much so that Valentino Park, one of the main parks of the capital is defined as the heart of the city. Directly on the bank of the Po, it is very pleasant to walk here among the trees and also some animals that live in the park, squirrels for example.
Crossing the center we will find ourselves at Leopardi Park, a space named after the great poet. An oasis in the green that is also part of the green ring, a path for hikers that passes through the hills of Turin. Here we can find trees such as redwoods or plane trees, flower beds full of fragrant flowers.
One plane tree, in particular, is the most famous in the city. This tree is called the Grandfather of Turin and is located in the Tesoriera Park. A naturalistic park in a setting of baroque style buildings. The plane tree was planted in the eighteenth century.
One of the largest parks in Piedmont is the Superga Park, the area covers several areas including the Turin area. This piece of green is a protected oasis, walking among the trees you can see the flora and fauna that populate the park. On the hill to guard the area we will find the Basilica of Superga, imposing and magnificent to the eye.
Between modernity and the desire for nature in the city we find the beautiful contrast of Parco della Dora. Located in the area where once were the industrial plants of companies such as Michelin and Fiat, where modern renovation has given new sight and style by surrounding with greenery the components of the industries. The green area is located on the banks of the river Dora, from which it takes its name. A very special park, where every day young lovers of urban art ride their bikes or skateboards.
These are some of the most famous parks that surround Turin and its province with greenery.
