Beautiful square with Savoy palace at the center. It is worth seeing while you are in Turin. Unfortunately Palazzo Madama is currently being restored so you can’t see the facade.

One can spend hours walking through the many rooms of the palace. There is not enough information on the signs/ panels, and the different language panels are not equally informative.

I just love the building, all the fantastic art it contains, the frescos, floors and, my favourite , the small garden on the lower floor. If plan to do a lot of sightseeing in Torino it is worth buying the Piedmont pass which gives you access to several sites and you can also use public transport

The building is really impressive and the collection amazing, but what we really missed are descriptions of the artefacts in English - Turin is a city attracting a lot of tourists, therefore English translation should be available.

Every time I go in the Palazzo Madama, I go and see the lovely staircase. What a genius Juvarra!
Then I never have time to see all of the collection, because it is so huge! It is a must when in Torino

This is the real central point of Turin. The building is the mixture of styles and epochs. The baroque facade of Juvarra and the medieval castle on the other side. You can find inside the Civic Museum of Ancient Art. Interesting collections of medieval and renessaince paintings with the most famous Antonello da Messina, superb rooms. On the top nice view. Do not miss it.

We should have visited Palazzo Madama earlier in our trip to Turin as we didnt leave enough time to experience the attraction on our last day. Having visited the Egyptian museum in the morning and then the Turin Shroud museum (which we should have skipped )there wasnt much time to explore. It was very busy as a special promotion that day and people were getting in for reduced fee. Only had time for the garden, and to go up in the lift to see the amazing view and a quick visit to the impressive religious art and porcelain collection.
