I wandered into the Palazzo Madama without knowing too much about it. What an incredible experience awaited me. Built upon the remnants of a medieval castle, each floor of the Palazzo Madama contained something unique. I did not take an organized tour, but simply wandered through the palace. Not to be missed!!!!

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.

Palazzo Madama, prominently located on Turin's main square, is a pleasant place to visit. One can easily spend two to three hours there, leisurely strolling from room to room, exhibit to exhibit. Besides the usual Palazzo features and offerings, there usually are other events/showings happening, for a small, additional fee. For instance, when I went, there was a special showing of renowned paintings on loan from several Russian museums and art galleries. Among others, some of the works included: "Female head. Study, c. 1876", by Pierre August Renoir; "The Birth of Venus", 1732, by Noël-Nicolas Coypel; and "Haystack in Giverny", 1886, by Claude Monet. However, the most memorable feature of Palazzo Madama, for me, is its monumental staircase, at the entrance, constructed from 1718 to 1721, designed by Filippo Juvarra, architect. It is so beautiful and impressive that it takes my breath away.

Rivaling the Palace museum next door, the Madama has a LOT to see, even if it's on a slightly smaller scale. Like next door, it's worth seeing the beautiful palace rooms and building even if the displays aren't to your taste. There is a lot of ecclesiastical art, but don't let that put you off. Buy the museum card to get the best rate.

A palace chosen by Madama Reale Cristina di Francia, regent for her young children, fused with the Savoia-Acaja Castle above the Porta Decumana of Roman times, and later inhabited by the second Madama Reale, Maria Giovanna Battista di Savoia Nemours, who called Juvarra to redo the palace in the Baroque fashion still present today, while leaving the posterior older part intact. It is the gravitational center of Turin and one of its most identifiable symbols. The grand escaliers bring to the upper apartments, where splendid collections of the Museum of Ancient Art are housed. Not a place to be missed.

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.

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.
