The palace hosts several museums, so it can take full day to explore it all. The good thing is that the ticket is valid for a full day so you can get out for lunch and come back. Almost no queue compared to other museums in Turin. The palace is unexpectedly sumptuous and huge, and the picture collection is very... More

It is a must. Superb decor and unique. The Chinese room, the large armoury room -- everything was amazing. Truly wonderful.

Just €12 to visit this amazing gem. This was home to the Savoia's, Italy's historic royal family. This royal palace is so incredibly over the top, you just can't take it all in. The Throne Room in all it's pomp and grandeur is incredible but my favourite room is the Royal Arsenal. Full of horses, knights armour, weapons: it is... More

The palace isn't impressive on the outside, but the rooms are sumptuous with paintings, chandeliers and furnishings. You get to visit the palace rooms, the armory (various armors on horses, guns, swords), an art gallery with paintings from the 15th to 19th century and the library (the visited area is small but interesting). You can also take a walk in... More

Such an extraordinary palace! I have never seen so many gold embossed walls, doors, ceilings, furnishings anywhere. Every ceiling was painted like the Sistine Chapel and the walls abounded with Renaissance style paintings, tapestries and chandeliers. There was an enormous hall filled with mounted horses and models of men dressed in all manner of armour and weaponry. Not to be... More

We visited this palace on a day trip to Turin from Sauze d'Oulx in the mountains. Through quirks of history, this is a forgotten royal house but their palace is very impressive. Huge and sumptuously decorated, it was a really interesting place to visit.

The palace feels modest from the outside, at least compared to royal palaces in Vienna, France, Bavaria, or England. The palace rooms are a treat, with paintings, chandeliers, furnishings, and lot of gilt. The armory was a pleasant surprise with men at arms on armored horses, and the usual swords, fires arms, etc displayed very well. The art museum had... More

Your ticket allows entry to the palace, including the armory, as well as the archeological museum and park. Lovely example of the architecture of the time.

Originally the Bishops Palace, in old Turin, it eventually became a beautiful, opulent palace of the Sovereign House of Savoy. It is quite large, located on Piazza Castello, near to just about every other tourist attraction, in Turin. Its admission ticket also includes admission to the Royal Armory, Galleria Sabauda and Museo di Antichità (Archaeological Museum.) The palace is richly... More
