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.
