The home of Savoy royalty once lived here; now it is one of a set of museums. Unfortunately it's seen better days. The front is a little dirty, with rickety window shutters. The plaza by the entrance was undergoing loud construction when I was there, so it wasn't a pleasant place to be. But the inside...well, imagine you take a... More

This is the Italian equivalent to Buck House but much more elaborate! What made it exceptional was the room attendants who were very knowledgable and willing to talk and tell you all about what you were looking at and inform about the changing lifestyles at various periods of the buildings history. Well worth a visit.

It is impressive on the outside. The interiors are very grand. My favorite rooms were the ballroom ( done in Neoclassical style with an overhead balcony for the orchestra), the dining room ( done in Neo Baroque style ) and the Chinese room. The floors are mostly ornate parquet wooden floors. The Royal kitchen and private royal rooms were closed,... More

If you are in Turin and have time to visit its attractions this place is a good option. Even though it is not as imposing as other royal palaces you can find around the world, it is still interesting and worthy for the low price of the ticket.

I am used to visit castel and palace. Most often visits are expensive and rooms are beautiful but quite empty... That is why this palace was a very good surprise: only 6€ and the rooms are full of furnitures of this period. The decoration is very rich and in great condition. I would say it is a must see in...

One of the finest "small" royal palaces visited. Excellently maintained and very intimate. One can actually imagine how they lived by touring the palace. Not overly expensive either.

Yes there are some faults with this attraction. The price at $15 is not cheap, the signage is not always the best, the entrance is convoluted or confusing because you are allowed to go so far and then you are told you need to back downstairs and around the corner to buy tickets. Once you get past the hurdles it... More

I'm a keen gardener, so I was especially to interested in visiting the garden, the part thats restored is beautiful , even though its December so most of the plants and garden are put to bed, it was a lovely place to get out into the fresh air and apperciate the basic design of the garden.

Current cost to tour this palace is 12 Euros. They provide a reasonable number of explanatory sign boards in a variety of languages. However, the royal apartments, the kitchens and the gardens were unavailable without explanation.

We weren't sure if this exhibit was worth going into because there were no lines or cue to get into it; but to our surprise, it was well worth the price of admission. Fascinating presentation of the history of the Royal Palace of Turin. Each room had a very interesting write-up on it's history - available in a variety of... More
