Torino is filled with miles of sidewalks that are covered. These walk ways were designed for the royalty of Torino so they could walk the city and not get wet.
On rainy days you can travel most of the downtown area covered. Some of the sidewalks are made of marble. Although it's beautiful it is also very slippery. So of the stores that have basements have windows on the sidewalk and you can look between your feet and see displays under the sidewalk. Those Plexiglas sections are even more slippery than the marble.
