The arcades are typical of Cuneo. They cover around eight kilometers in the city center, where you can stroll comfortably even on rainy days. That makes Cuneo an attractive shopping city. Most of the arcades date from the Middle Ages and from the 17th to the 18th centuries to the Baroque. In Piazza Galimberti, on the other hand, there are arcades from the 19th century. Via Roma is the main street and runs through the historic center of Cuneo. It starts in Piazza Torino. Along Via Roma are the prefecture, bishop’s palace and the baroque church of Sant’Ambrogio, which is dedicated to the Milanese parish.
Through the beautiful arcades from the Middle Ages, you continue to Contrada Mondovì, the characteristic pedestrian zone with shops, where, among other things, the typical Cunesian products, sweets and antique items are offered. There are still some medieval buildings here. Before reaching the Church of San Sebastiano from 1320, one passes the synagogue from 1884.
