we felt like we travelled back in time, wandering through many ornately gilded rooms, filled with mirrors, golden clocks, chinese vases and stuffy furniture. the ballroom is especially grand, the chandeliers reflect in the polished floors. it's a perfect glimpse into the lives of the nobles and staff who occupied these rooms. unfortunately, the kitchens were closed, we would have...

Wandering through the many rooms that comprise the Royal Palace you have to wonder what it must have been like to either be a Royal or to have worked in the palace.

Lovely old architecture...fabulous old paintings. It is well preserved and very interesting. Situated in the square so an easy place to get to. I found the entrance way a little confusing!

The palace itself is worth seeing as it's everything over the top that you'd want in YOUR palace: gold and velvet, sconces and luxurious paintings; wonderful marble staircases and chandeliers. A room was closed and we didn't know it as there was no sign: we touched the door knob and the staff member berated us soundly despite the fact we... More

We were a bit hesitant to visit the palace, due to the grim, dull outside of the buildings. Upon entering the first staircase however this changes in endless grandeur of uncountable and luxurious rooms. Make sure to visit the Armoury, with spectacular knights on horses and impressive arms.

Beautifully restored palace is worth your time to tour. The art and architecture is magnificent. The crystal chandeliers are incredible.

The Royal Palace is a must see in Turin. The interiors are very beautiful and impressive. There are beautiful candelabras of crystal, beautiful paintings and tapestries. My favorite items were the Chinese and Japanese porcelain vases, many of them of a large size. Apparently the Savoy family loved to collect these vases.

Endless rooms of over ornamented baroque rooms do tire and at the Royal Palace there is a succession of large, grandiose rooms that rather overwhelm one. What I found most interesting was a portion were the ceiling had collapsed revealling the structure of the roof above. That was fascinating and gave a real sense of how these palaces were constructed.... More

The palace itself is amazing, but the garden is wonderful. It is a great place to bring some food & drink. Walking or sitting looking at the Alps is so peaceful place. Great place to be.
