Such fancy armor and weapons, housed in a magnificent hall. An absolute must-see when visiting the Royal Palace.

Attached to Turin's Royal Palace, on Piazza Castello, the Royal Armory contains a wide variety of historical weapons and armor, as well as many stuffed horses in full regalia. It is quite impressive, to behold its long galleries. However, unless you're a weapons and armor aficionado, plan on spending less than one hour there. The admission ticket for it also... More

We enjoyed touring the Armeria Reale after visiting the Royal Palace. My favorite area was the room with the horses and knights in armor. It's an outstanding collection. We spent some time in the gardens as well, where there are comfortable lounging chairs where you can rest, nap, or have a picnic.

The arsenal is connected to the royal palace, so no additional ticket is required and the kids are even free (just one more example how children friendly Italy is). From antique to modern devices - it's all there in beautiful surroundings.

Entering the gallery with the 16th century arms, the horses and the particular impressif archtecture and wallpaintings is a journey back in time. Even is you are not particularly interested in arms it is still worthwile walking trough as a part of the royal palace.

I wish I had known just big and beautiful this place was before we went. The gardens are simply amazing and so well kept with plenty of seating to just chill out and watch the sun shine. Had I been more prepared I would have taken a picnic and spent some lazy hours in this garden. Inside the house was... More
