Meet your guide in front of the Metro stop of Principi d'Acaja and start discovering the Art Nouveau of Turin. Discover The House of Dragons, which is one of the most valuable examples in the city of the skilful mix between the neo-Gothic French style and Art Nouveau, which was immensely popular in the city at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.
See Casa Fenoglio-Lafleur, a beautiful house that immediately strikes the eye for the wonderful floral friezes that cover the facade, the wrought-iron balconies, and the splendid polychrome glass. Visit Villino Raby, which is one of Pietro Fenoglio's masterpieces. The wrought iron railings lead to the rooms with the large bow-window and the decorations of the master Domenico Smeriglio.
See the Chiesa di Gesù Nazareno which built at the start of the 20th century as part of a project by architect Giuseppe Gallo. Constructed in the neo-Gothic style with Art Nouveau influences, the building is dominated by the high bell tower, with a richly decorated facade.
As part of the tour, enjoy a coffee in a traditional café, also built in the Art Nouveau style.
