Piazza Galimberti was named after the Italian Resistance hero, Tancredi (Duccio) Galimberti in 1945. On the walls here one can see the tablet with the famous quotes from Galimberti. The square took 50 years to build in its neoclassical style. It is one of the most beautiful places in Italy and also a great source of pride for Cuneo where a number of events takes place each year. It also features as an outdoor market. Torre Civica Cuneo - For a panoramic view of the city of Cuneo and its breathtaking surroundings, there is no better vantage point than from atop the Torre Civica. The tower itself is also a sight to behold, and the main point of reference when exploring the old quarter of town. San Francesco Church -The old church houses the Museo Civico di Cuneo (Civil Museum of Cuneo). Abandoned for a hundred years, the church now preserves a collection of regional art. It has been restored, but still maintains its historic feeling. Limone Piemonte is a municipality of Cuneo which is famous for its skiing activities. It is actually one of the oldest ski areas in Italy. The place became a "ski-station" in 1897 using the old 80 kilometres of trails, when skiing competitions began the history of skiing in Limone. Parco Naturale Alpi Marittime - This park was once the residence of the royal family and a hunting spot during the 19th century. You can go on many excursions in the park. For nature lovers, this place is a must-see. Museo Diocesano San Sebastiano was an abandoned church before it became a museum.

The San Sebastiano Cafe can also be found inside the museum, a good place to get something to eat while touring this place.
