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.

I enjoyed this more than Versailles because it feels more intimate. The rooms are grand with ridiculously high ceilings (which I loved), along with amazing frescoes, tapestries, and furnishings. It isn't as well preserved/ presented as Versailles, so most visitors may not agree with me, but I was very pleasantly surprised by this visit. After your visit, take a coffee... More

This was the top thing I wanted to see in Turin and I wasn't disappointed in anyway. Free entry with the Torino / Piedmont card. The architecture and sumptuousness of the interior was just jaw dropping. There were display panels in English to tell you what you were looking at. Apparently photography inside is forbidden but you'd never have guessed... More

Before or after your visit to the beautiful Royal Palace, please do go into the café which you will find tucked into the top left-hand corner of the courtyard as you walk through the main entrance. It really is a wonderful surprise when you enter and see the lovely surroundings. It feels like having tea in a museum as you... More

The entrance fee covers a visit to the armoury, the archaelogical museum and another gallery. However the entrance to the royal Palace, once you've bought the tickets doesn't seem so clear. It is round the left hand corner in the courtyard. There are many other doors marked, but no others can be entered (you go up some stairs in a... More
