Guido Gobino

Guido Gobino is one of the big names in Italian haute cuisine. In the best Piedmontese tradition, he specialises in chocolate. Don't miss a visit to one of his shops in the city centre, or to his laboratory on Via Cagliari where once in a while you can also attend exhibitions and contests related to confectionery.


Much like dining and nightlife, your shopping experience can also vary depending on the neighbourhood. In the Quadrilatero Romano area, you will find various ethnic, second-hand and artists' shops. If you are looking for something more sophisticated, you can walk under the arcades of Via Roma and along Via Lagrange, where all the major designer brands have their boutiques. On Via Garibaldi and Via Po, the two main roads to Piazza Vittorio, there are plenty of little stores selling clothes, accessories and local products. Last but not least, if you want to experience a genuine Italian market, you cannot miss Porta Palazzo Market: the biggest in Europe, merging into one farmers, fish and second-hand markets. This last is particularly famous: it is called Balon, and walking among its stalls bargaining with sellers is certainly a unique experience.
