Wife and I spent a morning here. Liked it very much. Long walk outside in the gardens, and many rooms and details to see inside. Not much in English, but we were able to follow along just fine. Many beautiful rooms to see. Was a pleasure. See the fountain display set to music. I think it runs every hour. Enjoy

I enjoyed my self tour of the palace as it was very luxurious even a bit over the top with gold and gilt absolutely everywhere..Obviously the House of Savoy liked to impress with amazing extravagance! Definitely a venue to have a look at along with the interesting history attached to it.

A reasonable place to visit - and very good value if you go for all areas. Not unexpectedly, the palace is a bit "limited" when compared to major European palaces - or even some major UK country "homes".

Anyone who can follow the history of the House of Savoy deserves a medal. Intermarried and interconnected with France, Spain, Austria, Sicily and Sardinia, etc. In 1946 the property was taken over by the Italian Republic and in 1997 made into a museum. I just loved this Place. There is heaps to see of what one expects in a Royal... More

Combined ticket gets you in to Palazzo Reale, Armeria Reale, Galeria Sabauda and Archeological Museum - all for 12euro. Check the opening times when you buying tickets. Outside was not very stunning, however inside..well...proper royalty :)

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...
