    Beautiful gardens, laid out very formally, quite spectacular, with white peacocks.
    The palazzo, which you have to go round before you get to the garden is completely over the top, ostentatious wealth. There are varied rooms, with many pictures, furniture, sculpture etc, but the best thing are the magnificent views from the windows!
    There are lots of shops, bars, cafes, etc to get past before you get to the entrance, which, like many sites we visited, is poorly signposted!

    This great little fountain is in one of the most beautiful squares in Aqui Terme. You can see the steam rise and watch people fill bottles to take home. The way it is presented is just great!

    Every year when I tour this place it leaves me with a smile with unique views I can't find anywhere else. For any tourists near Arona this is definately a place to stop by.

    I would’ve rated this 5 stars before I went to Castello Della Mandria so it’s a good, solid 4 star rating. The difference between the two? Authenticity. Unfortunately due to the dilapidation of the building and the subsequent investment needed to restore it, it means many of the antiquities have been borrowed from other palazzos. And of course it meant replacing windows, doors, floors etc. The walk through is still impressive and informative and the staff are polite. There’s a nice little cafe where you can grab a coffee and a pastry and sit out on a terrace overlooking the garden. Definitely worth a visit. To get there use the Venaria Express from the centre of Turin or pick it up by catching the metro to XVIII Decembre near Porta Susa. The stops are relatively easy to find.

    When you’ve just cross the frontier of Piedmont, where Alps reflected in rice fields, it’s became understood why only House Savoy was able to consolidate all Italy province under one sovereign. Center of Turin (streets, squares, churches and houses) is whole palace ensemble, created for ducal family and its national. There aren’t beggars, homeless and strays on the street. Professional musicians and opera singers make small performance under arcades. House Savoy vied with Versailles, today we thank them, visiting splendid Royal Palace. Royal art collections today calls Sabauda Gallery and locates in new interiors of Palace; I really enjoyed best Italian and Netherlandish artists (Botticelli, Filippino Lippi, Andrea Mantegna, Tiepolo, brothers Ferrari, Giovanni Bellini, Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, Jan van Eyck, Rembrandt, Anthony van Dyck). True heard of Turin is saved at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, but duplicate at each city churches. It’s Turin Shroud (Sindone di Torino). This relic is absolutely not “attraction”, but it’s must to see for believers and atheists. Turin Shroud is unique and maybe only evidence of Jesus of Nazareth, God for Christians and Messiah for Moslems. No more words.

    Walking straight up takes 20 minutes but taking longer you can enjoy the artwork of the individual chapels - the painting, the frescoes, the
    the scenery of the surrounding mountains - magic.

    Beautiful, big massive buildings. Hard to miss it. Easy 5 mins walk from Piazza Cavour. Could spend time there for an hour or more.

    It was totally worth it to go there, it is huge and you can spend the whole day there seeing interesting stuff and learning about the Kings and Queens of Italy :) we only spend 2 Euro per Person because we are under 25, so it is insanely cheap in comparison to what you get: the beautiful Palace (which looks like a full on Vampire-Castle from the inside), the Art Gallery and the Antiques Museum and the Archaeology Museum! Very interesting, very beautiful, very much fun and stunning :)

    We were advised to visit this amazing place by our hosts in Varese. What a find! We were virtually the only people there on a Tuesday morning. The architecture is quite wonderful and the church in the village at the top is simply wonderful.
    It felt a little surreal being in such an amazing and well preserved place on our own but we enjoyed it thoroughly.
    Lots of helpful information in English, German and Italian for tourists. Free parking at the very top of the village on week days too.

    I’m not a hiker but I loved this. The hike is a workout, but incredibly rewarding, both the hike and the opportunity to visit the Abbey. The Abbey itself is cool and the views are amazing. Try to make sure it’s a clear day. Easy 30 minute train ride from Torino Porta Nuova to Sant’Ambrogio stop. Quick walk through the village then begin hike behind the town church. Trail is well marked, but there is a transition where you come up to some homes maybe 2/3’s up where it isn’t completely obvious where to go. I’ve been to Torino a number of times and this is a must-do of you have the chance.

    Beautiful palace and gardens. Costs 20e and get the ferry which is only a few euros and cheaper than the private boats.

    Go early as busy in the Summer

    Lots of amazing artwork, grotto, peacocks and gardens.
