Absolutely Stunning
Sep 2020
This place is absolutely stunning.
I am not one for sight seeing anymore but this is really worth it.
During Covid, the weekdays is not busy so that's the best time- you virtually have the whole place to yourself.
It is truly magnificent!
The modern part became a bit tedious but the Palace itself is stunning.
Look out for the Coloured Princes- not many portraits like these in Europe.

Interesting to visit
Oct 2020
The Palazzo is enormous and the rooms are extremely ornate, with incredibly high ceilings, enormous paintings and interesting collections. There is a huge armoury room full of very old and beautifully kept armour. The gardens are rather disappointing.

Beautiful palace with amazing armory
Oct 2020
We have toured a lot of palaces and this is one of the best! The armory alone is absolutely stunning and the palace is beautiful throughout. I am very glad we visited. I would prioritize this over any other Torino attraction.

Take your time
Sep 2020
This was a stunning visit. The rooms are beautiful, the collection of armoury and paintings grand, and every turn offers a new amazing view into the lives of past royals. Of all the palaces I've visited, this must be one of my favourites.

My suggestion would be to take your time; slow down, read the information, and don't rush. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time (e.g. a full morning or afternoon) to explore the place. If you're with friends/family, everyone is sure to find a part that appeals to them, whether weapons, paintings, or grand architecture, so make sure everyone has time to enjoy themselves.

worthwhile to visit
Sep 2020
When visiting Torino, THIS is the museum to visit as it gives a very good impression of the history of this city. Also, you can visit the Galleria Sabauda, which shows the best collection of paintings in Torino

Italian style is better
Jul 2020 • Family
Very nice building where you can see elegance and style of the Italian kingdom age. You can't miss it. Very special rooms: room of the tron, armory, dining room, ballroom. Very special place to see: cappella della sacra sindone also for the architecture

World class history museum
Aug 2019 • Solo
Very large museum. Many areas of the museum were quite empty even it was August 2019. Very well build collections and exchipitions are huge. Building itself is of course full of history. You should have 3-5 hours to go through most of the collections, if you know some history before it helps a lot. Such a beaufitul place!

Impressively opulent interior
Dec 2019
The appearance of the Royal Palace, beautiful but not breath-taking, does not suggest the splendor inside. It was a symbol of the wealth of the Savoy Dynasty, and the center of its governing power.
The palace complex consists of plenty rooms with ornate interior of intricate shapes, awesome tapestries and marvelous paintings depicting religious scenes and events of the history of the Savoy Dynasty, the Royal Gardens and the Chapel of the Holy Shroud which have been turned into museums, known as the Royal Museums of Turin.
Amazing is the Grand Staircase (Scalone d'Onore), the first part of the Palace, every visitor sees - beautiful wall-paintings and sculptures, and a huge painting on the ceiling. All the rooms are furnished and decorated in a really lavish and opulent way with the Dining Room and the Room of the Cuirassiers being my favorites.
We didn't take audio-guides but plenty of detailed information was there in the rooms, both in Italian and English. There was a beautiful Christmas tree in the Ball Room and a "Steinway Spirio" piano, automatically performing songs of renowned artists.
Bear in mind that it is closed on Mondays but entry is free every first Sunday of the month. Admission for kids and youngsters of up to 18 years of age is also free of charge.

An elegant glimpse into royal luxury
Feb 2020
This is a wonderful look into the royalty of Savoy. Similar to other royal palaces, the unique offering is the armory. A slow tour do to crowds.

Room after Room of Palatial Decor
Feb 2020
We saved ourselves the hassle of paying per museum visit with the Torino+Piedmont Card (2 days @ €36, 3 days @ €43...) for unlimited visits within the duration purchased. With this we started at the Palazzo Reale and were not disappointed by the palatial complex of rooms full of treasures collected n commissioned by generations Savoy royalty - a little overwhelming but all very photogenic. Whether beautiful portraits or gilded barogue furniture or intricate carpets n wooden flooring, the palazzo was visually stunning. My favourite was the Grand Dining Hall. And, of course, the complex is linked to the Armoury Gallery n the Chapel of the Holy Shroud - no shroud though - the real deal only comes out once every 25 yrs at another venue - next showing 21 years time :( There was a sprawling garden which was in winter mode - must be really awesome in spring/summer. Still, what a rewarding visit it was.
