Armeria reale is just next to Royal Palace. You could visit them together. The large number of arms are exposed to the eyes of visitors. Enjoy impressive, Kings alive looking horse preserved in its real skin.

Inside the royal palace, just a short walk to get there. It has a large collection of muskets, smooth-bore rifles, pistols, swords, daggers, crossbows and other kinds of historic weapons. Quite impressive.

One of the best armoury display I've seen. Not too big and overwhelming. Great lighting and location too. Worth the trip if you're a fan of how things looked in the past. They have life size standing models of the animals and soldiers from back then. Was great to see the sheer size of the horses and men.

Short but with nice samples of old times weapons. Even stuffed horsed are exhibited there with their parade camouflage.

Attached to the Royal Palace, you walk into the Royal Armory seamlessly. The palace it seems was armed to the teeth, you'll find a large collection of rifles, pistols, swords, daggers, crossbows and other kinds of historic weaponry here, most of which were made in a delightfully non-industrial way, with great attention to detail and design.

I have written another review on the visit to the rooms of the palazzo, but did not mention my favorite part of an otherwise dull visit: the armory! I complained in the other review that too many European castle tours are all too similar. Of course armories are to be found all over Europe as well - as often as... More

The biggest, widest selection of armors, weapons I have ever seen, especially it was in part of the Savoy Royal Palace. Very well curated and beautifully displayed. I was amazed by all the details on the items. A must visit !

Such an amazing collection, spanning many centuries. It includes armour, shields, swords, muskets, hand guns, daggers, spears. Pieces range from those used by palace guards, right up to the gilded, amazingly ornate pieces used by the highest of nobility. And the collection is huge, honestly it looks like they're struggled to fit everything in! Descriptions for all the pieces in... More

Very big collection of weapons and armours. the gallery was recently refurbished and it's now on the top. If you like this kind of museum it's a must. Also your children will largely appreciate.
