The Palace and Armory are a great way to view the history. You can view the original furnishing of the palace and it is also quiet with so little visitors (mostly Italians). The adjoining Gallery is currently closed for renovation. You begin by going up a grand staircase that opens into successive rooms some are frescoed in mythological themes and... More

Love this castle, it's a great step back into Savoy history. Strongly recommended - get the museum pass from the information office in Piazza castello...saves you a ton of money on museum entrances!

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.
