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

I adore this place! It's an historical hunting castle with a beautiful park outside... If you're visiting Turin, you can't miss it as you can't miss the Sacra di San Michele and the Reggia di Venaria Reale. Historical places giving you the idea of the history of Piedmont and its greatness...

It is a nice visit well organized; but definitely overpriced; it is not worth more than 5 euro and the entrance is 12. In one hour you have seen what it has to be seen. In my opinion they are overstaffed and that may explain the price. It is not allowed to take picture.

Stupinigi palace is just a great architecture structure. It's not possible to visit it yet but just to see external part of the palace is a nice thing.

A tram and a bus will take you to the Palazzina di Caccia Stupinigi. The trip takes about one hour from the main station. In July 2012 only a small portion of the palace was open to the public including the main hall and the apartment of the duke of Chiablese. The apartment especially offers some very nice baroque interiors.... More
