The route

To visit the hills south of turin where Don Bosco lived

The Route of Don Bosco, departing from the Shrine of Mary Ausiliatrice (Mother House of Turin Valdocco, a symbol of the Salesians where St. Giovanni Bosco was buried) leads to Colle Don Bosco (Castelnuovo Don Bosco, AT). The route passes through the historic city center (Rondo della forca, Piazza della Repubblica, San Giovanni Cathedral, Piazza Castello, Piazza Vittorio Veneto) to the Gran Madre di Dio, along the Po River at the foot of the Turin hills.

The path is suitable for a wide variety of uses, from a day’s walk to multi-day trek that can return to Turin in a circular route. It is not particularly difficult: it is marked with clockwise white and green road signs starting from Turin. It is especially suited for hiking and walking in the middle of nature.
