The rooms on display are very regal indeed, boasting paintings, furniture, parquetry, marble statues all on the very largest and grandest scale. At the end of the rooms is the armoury with dozens of stuffed horses, mounted with dummies in suits of splendid armour. A further room displays weapons, shields etc. The tickets for this palace are very good value... More

The workmanship and quality of the rooms and everything inside it is just a wonder, how could they do this several hundred years ago. When we don't see this type of workmanship even today.

I went here because the entrance was free with the Torino Card and I was pleasantly surprised! The palace is beautifully decorated and there is lots to see. I liked the fact that the signs provided English information. I was especially inpressed with Armeria Reale! I don't think I would have regretted not visiting, but I'm glad I did.

After traversing the pedestrian only Via Giuseppe Garibaldi from the start we end up in the Piazza Castello with the French inspired Palazzo Reale which gives us an insight into previous reigns of French rule in this inspiring cafe lovers city.

Can't say I was overly impressed with this palace. It's a pretty typical palace with nothing that was really outstanding, in my opinion. It's very pretty. It was included in our city walking tour and is well maintained and definitely interesting. I would definitely recommend trying to see it,, but if you miss it, you haven't missed a lot. The... More

In Europe there are many royal residences but this one has a particular romantic atmosphere with no Time and boundaries, to really see this place one should take at least an entire day or two, let's not forget that not all the areas can be visited in the same day. I warmly advice the lovely cafe inside It, where one... More

The palace was quite nice (not the best palace you will ever see, but nice enough) but our visit was ruined by a security woman who shouted at me very loudly for sitting for a moment on a seat. Apparently, the seat is old (though it doesn't look old). There was no signage up saying 'do not sit' nor a... More

Really enjoyed my visit. Not much information in English but just enjoyed wandering through the opulent rooms not hindered trying to read a guide book as I normally do (i work in a historic house). Spent ages watching their conservation team replacing a 17c ceiling pannel that had been removed for restoration work. So fascinated I returned the next day... More

Despite not as big or as impressive as other castles built in the same period, it has the advantage of having maintained over the years most of its original features (wall papers, ceilings, wooden floors, furniture...). Peculiarities and history of each room are described in Italian, English, French and German, although explanations look a bit rudimental, being simply printed on... More

The Royal Palace can certainly stand it's ground with other royal dwellings. You can stroll through the monumental halls and opulent chambers and soak up the grandeur in which it's former habitants lived. Don't forget to visit the armoury, which displays an amazing array of weapons.
