The palace rivals Versailles! It was sad to see how they have let the gardens become overgrown with weeds and statuary fallen and overgrown. The people of Torino need to market this better because it is a magnificent piece of their history that every tourist should see.

Such richness of colour and texture and beauty. Not like anywhere else, even Versailles. Amongst all the beauty if the most amazing collection of armour and weaponry which has to be one of the biggest in the world.

An amazing building and the armoury in particular was stunning. Though given the size of the palace I expected there to be more to look around, plus the gardens were overgrown and closed and courtyard/common areas were overgrown and run down.

Absolutely stunning! It's a shame it's only a museum now, although that's the best way to preserve its beauty and for the biggest number of people to see it... A must see!

Very nicely done! Well worth an afternoon! Tour busses stop just outside in the square and tourist office is across the street. Easy walk to the palace from center Turin hotels.

Visited this special place yesterday and was most impressed with the royal apartments. Enormous rooms with extraordinarily high and ornate ceilings. Fabulous period furnishings and tapestries. Also the armoury was most impressive.

The Royal Palace from Turin is the right place to be/visit if your are in love with vintage stuff and old ways of living your life. The palace is huge but visitors are allowed to see only one small part of it. You can see small parts of the furniture that was used in those times and also the ballroom... More

I wish I had done a guided tour, because it's so beautiful and rich in history! There's the Throne Room, extravagant breakfast and dining and ballrooms, and a whole hallway for armory and weapons (where they've preserved many important battle horses...interesting). Explanations in English, Italian, German, French, and another I can't remember; and it's free on Sunday.
