About
Villa della regina will be closed to the public from Monday 23 January 2023 to Friday 27 January 2023 for restoration work The complex of vineyard and gardens was built at the beginning of the seventeenth century, on the model of the Roman villas, by Prince Cardinal Maurizio di Savoia. After his death (1657) there followed decoration campaigns for the wife Ludovica and, at the end of the century, for Anna d'Orleans, the wife of Vittorio Amedeo II, Duke of Savoy. The apartments and gardens of the Villa, referred to as those "of the Queen" after the Duke of Savoy took the royal title in 1713, were modernised by Filippo Juvarra for Carlo Emanuele III. In the middle of the eighteenth century stables and service buildings were put up. In 1865 Vittorio Emanuele II gave the residence to a female school (Istituto Nazionale per le Figlie dei Militari Italiani), which was active until 1975. Since 1994 restoration work have been carried out on behalf of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. The Villa has been open to the public since 2006.

I am very upset, annoyed and disappointed. I arrived just before 4pm today at the Villa della Regina and was told it was no longer possible to get tickets to go in. No explanation given! The villa was still open, people were inside, but they could not let anyone in. As someone who has travelled from very far away, it was a horrible disappointment.

This villa is somewhat outside the city centre and uphill. Even after the bus stop, you still need to climb a bit. Views over the city and the Alps are okay from the top gardens but the area itself needs still some restoration. Half of the garden is not accessible due to possible hazards. And the gardens themselves are not so inspiring - at least in late summer - mainly plain grass parts with some neo-classical structures and simple fountains.
The villa itself has certainly some nice elements. for instance the main hall with a full trompe-l'oeuil setting. Furniture and decoration gives you a good idea of how people lived in these days. But still parts of ceilings, tapestry and ornaments require restoration after the WWI bombing or the years before when it was a army school. Pity that this upgrading is still ongoing.
As some reviewers indicate, it lacks sufficient spaces to sit, especially in the garden. They have a vineyard and sell wine and other grape things but you wonder why they don't have a cafe. Also: the access to the toilets is at the start of the tour through the villa and garden. We had to ask to be allowed in again to use them after we had wandered around.
This villa is at this stage certainly not the best Turin has to offer.

Nice view on the city and mountains by very clear weather only. The interiors are very interesting as is also the exposition on the nearby vineyards. Gardens a little bit deserted but still worth the visit.

My husband and I were keen to visit because of "The Italian Job" connection. To see the steps where the main character stood was a great moment.
The palace itself is a little gem, perfectly preserved rooms and decorations. The information was in English as well as Italian and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
We particularly loved the gardens and the viewing area at the top (with a bench provided!).
A small area with snacks, hot and cold drinks provided a welcome relief on a warm day.
Only one disappointment, we couldn't buy a bottle of the wine from the estate as we were told it was only sold on a Sunday. The woman in reception did give us a list of places to buy it from in the city but we weren't lucky enough to find a bottle.
This place is well worth a couple of hours visit. Beautiful.

Underrated. Well worth the 5€ (it was only 2€ for 18-25 year olds). MUCH better than going to the Mole itself. Views we lovely and architecture was beautiful. We walked up hill from the town and the walk was not too difficult, although on a hot day it might have been better to drive if possible. The gardens need attention and the bathrooms left a bit to be desired. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back and would highly recommend.

Pleasant enough to visit, but in need of some serious money spent.
The gardens could be fabulous but totally neglected.

This former royal palace has been restored from damage due to time and bombing during WWII. It is still a little rough around the edges, which adds to its charm. There are not many visitors and it is nice to walk around the house and gardens. Some of the structures in the garden are closed to visitors, and only the ground floor of the palace is open currently. The views from the house and garden are wonderful. A visit on a clear day is well worth the time. The walk may look far, but it is a quick trip from Gran Madre.

After going up a steep hill to find Villa della Regina Turin, we were in for a surprise. Yes it is a vila or supposed to be a palace but in fact its a building in a pity state. The gardens seem to be under some sort of construction and there wasn't one flower. The view was like any other attraction around Turin. On the inside, there's a sort of a hall with benches and a DVD about the place when it was in a very better state. I was so disappointed.

No where to sit and contemplate the nature or view. No real café with real coffee to enjoy a book. No entry to garden without going through vila which I've seen and am sure hasn't changed. Por existence! However, glad I didn't pay as have museum card. Why come again?
