Givoletto is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 20 kilometres (12 mi) northwest of Turin.

It is located at the feet of the Graian Alps's first reliefs from Turin's plain, with elevations such as the Monte Lera at 1,368 metres (4,488 ft) above sea level. Givoletto is home to the Madonna della Neve Natural Preserve, established to preserve the Euphorbia gibelliana, a plant which grows only in this area.
