Castello di Racconigi, Racconigi

One of the residences of the Royal House of Savoy, Castello di Racconigi attracts visitors with its magnificent landscaped park and palace. André Le Notre, designer of one of the Versailles' gardens, had a hand in the garden on the castle's north side. Along the small manmade lake, you'll see the English garden influence, complete with small structures reminiscent of the English countryside, such as a Gothic-style chapel, and a Doric temple. The last Russian czar, Nicolas II, is honored with a Russian dacha, or summer home, on the grounds. For a small fee, you can explore the castle's Neoclassic interior. Reliefs and murals depict the feats of mythological characters and glorify the surroundings. Plan a Racconigi trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

    We visited the castle of Racconigi on the occasion of the assumption. Unfortunately when I phoned to get information they didn't tell me if it was possible to make a guided tour. Yesterday upon entry tell me that reservations should be made elsewhere (at the information desk) and then returned to the ticket office at the Castle. A little too much hassle for my taste; It would be desirable for a better organization. The visit included a short path to the most interesting part was represented from the kitchens. The rooms and furnishings are well kept and very rich; the site is definitely worth a guided tour which, no doubt, would be longer, interesting and comprehensive

    Surely it is a castle to watch for a variety of historical reasons. However is not sufficiently valued. Some salt today were closed in mid-August (?), the Castle Park uncultivated and abandoned ... Certainly the price is low, but the reception and management are not in the standard of European structures even less prestigious of this castle. At the entrance it was necessary to have money because the case did not rest ... a few tours.

    The Park is completely abandoned, everything cannot be visited. A few baskets, zero dining benches a few and gross. Being run by the State and overgrown. Full of weeds and fallen branches. Often the warning sign falling branches ". 2 euros per person ill-spent.

  • If you come to Turin, for sure you should go and see the Summer Palace of Racconigi. It is situated approximately 50 km from Turin but it is one of the best castles to see. Big part of the castle passed under construction and it is really very nice to enter in and to hear the interesting and curiosity stories about the castle. There you can find maybe the most big Kitchen you have ever seen, you cannot even imagine, but I am sure you will like it and wish to come back again. Behind the castle there is one really big garden where you can go and relax after the tour in the castle. The price of visit is very low but it is worth seeing. Racconigi and the castle is a place where you can see lots of stork every year. Four kilometers from the castle you can find the Center of Storks and Anatidae. In the center during all the years you can observe different kind of local and migrating birds. Go there and you will be satisfied!
  • Wonderful place to visit.

  • The castle of Racconigi excited right away thanks to the grandeur of the structure and to the presence in plain sight of the nests of storks. We only had access to the Park and not the Castle. The Park is large but not particularly cured, you can picnic freely. We actually went to see a depiction of the Theatre House of women in Turin on Marco Polo and, despite the heat, it was truly superb keeping vigilant of young spectators for the duration of the show.

  • Rather than explain, you see! One of the many beauties of this region of Piedmont, and of course in Italy. Simply put, therefore, all information on the beauty and history of this castle, which is second to no other Castle in the world can be found on the net, the emotion and beauty Luckily for us still to be found on site. Then plan a trip out of town, especially in the summer to enjoy the beauty of this castle and its beautiful park.
