Not too far out of Turin and if you have a car this should be a place on you list You can now take photos (The signs say no photos) but they really mean no flash - This was confirmed by the people in each room. So take plenty of photos! Confusing, yes, but that seems to be Italy! :)... More

Juvarra's architecture is splendid! Curves, concavities and convexities, order and wonder. Lighter and cleaner than baroque architecture, majestic and regal. Unfortunately no access to the park and most of the palace, hospitality to be improved, no cafeterias of bookstores. Guess it will get better year by year; this attraction was open to public just a few years ago. In Italy... More

For those of us who have been ignorant of the wealth and power of the Savoy dukes, it is eye-opening to see this palace and grounds (well, part of it anyway). It is also amazing to learn of the emphasis of “the hunt” on the social structure of the period. I’ve seen numerous tapestries and other artifacts in various parts... More

Another of Turin's hidden gems (sorry Stupigini). While restoration is still in progress, we visited and toured inside. It felt like visiting Italy's Palace of Versailles, but with nobody there. The decor is great, and while photos are not allowed (why not without flash?) sadly there were little in the way of postcards or books to buy after our visit.

Didn t go in, but outside it isjust amazin! We had a pic-nic on the gras infront, wich is very well groomed and we couldn't stop looking at this amazing place. Liked it a lot. The only negative thing is the street and its streetsigns, that are very bad!

At the time of writing, only about half of the palace has been restored and is available to visit. The architecture and layout of the palace and little village of Stupinigi is impressive and interesting. I think a spring or summer visit, when you can explore the grounds help justify the rather steep admission price. That being said, we visited... More

The rooms that were open ( about half of them) were very well restored. There is some very nice furniture and interesting frescoes. The central domed pavilion is magnificent. At 12 euros , we thought it was somewhat overpriced.

Having visited the other big royal hunting lodge at Venaria Reale I went to Stupinigi with high expectations. Venaria Reale is huge and impressive. After long and thorough renovation works the castle and gardens are now open to the public and anybody visiting will be in awe. That was not how I felt after my visit to the Stupinigi palace....

Nice spot, from the outside. The interior has some interesting furnishing, and a great central saloon, but I would have appreciated an internal park visit, which is prohibited...

It takes time to get down to Stupinigi from the center of Turin by tram and bus. Once there, I was disappointed to find that the grounds and half the palace were closed. Thought they might have reduced the price to account for that, but no. And no pictures allowed. The bright side was the central oval, which occupies the... More
