Stupinigi palace is just a great architecture structure. It's not possible to visit it yet but just to see external part of the palace is a nice thing.

A tram and a bus will take you to the Palazzina di Caccia Stupinigi. The trip takes about one hour from the main station. In July 2012 only a small portion of the palace was open to the public including the main hall and the apartment of the duke of Chiablese. The apartment especially offers some very nice baroque interiors. Exhibition labels are in both Italian and English, but one suspects that Google Translate has helped with the translation. The extensive and newly renovated gardens was closed for the public in July 2012. Expect to use two hours on transport, but no more than one hour on the palace itself.

We did not know, so our trip there was a bit of waste, even if we did have a pleasant al fresco lunch at the local pub across the street, which had a large selection of antipasto that sold by the plate.

This area is a shambles, all by itself south of Turino. They have no audioguides or English materials to accompany your visit, and you must visit with a guide for a tour lasting about an hour and half. They offered us a French tour which would have worked but we decided to move on without seeing the interior of the palace. The exterior harkened back to glory days, but it was depressing. Most shocking was the soiled, dreary Italian flag limply hanging from one of the surrounding buildings, where cars whiz by and apparently no one has thought to refresh the flag in several years. So sad that UNESCO site like this cannot be cared for or better exhibited to foreigners. There is nothing around it- no restaurants, nothing you would expect upon arriving at such a tourist destination.
