Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi was erected as a royal hunting lodge for the House of Savoy in what is now a suburb of Turin. Filippo Juvarra redecorated the palace interior in the 18th century for the King of Sardinia. Juvarra brought many of his designers from Venice to complete the 137 rooms and 17 galleries, which took years. The hunting grounds surrounding the palace have been reclaimed as a nature preserve. In this lowland forest, native plant species thrive that have died off elsewhere. Footpaths wind through the 18 km (11 mi) of land.

  • Excellent preparation of the guide that with professionalism and skill sent us a part of history that belongs to us. Paintings, frescos, works of art to admire you will not forget. A thank you to all the people who contributed to the reopening of a hunting lodge.

  • You must make it to Palazzo Stupinigi if you are in Turin, it is a short drive from the city center. It is an amazing place with many originals room, decorations, furniture, and stunning frescos. 
  • The recent arrangement has produced a monument must see. Both the external appearance that the interiors visible restored and furnished are very beautiful. The audio-guide that you can request at no additional cost explains very well, environment to environment, characteristics and history. The Park is a short walk, if on a nice day, geometry of hedges. Useful free service to leave backpacks or bulky luggage.

  • This historical site is a must see for all. The facade and the gardens of this palace are really beautiful. The inside is being wonderfully restored to the least detail. The audio guide is a must and it is included in the entrance fee, which fee is reasonable. This site is 45 minutes bus ride away from porta nouva - bus 4n which stops in front of an old fashioned cafe and which same bus takes you back to the city. On another note don't leave stupinigi before you taste the home made ice cream from this cafe.
  • Exceptional 18th century hunting lodge of the Savoy dynasty. A must see. Beautifully restaured.
  • Time has gone by since I visited this royal villa the first time , and I have to say that the vision is always awesome, the corridors, the fantastic style of the rooms together with the grand room worth the ticket's price. All the sceneries in the area are surrounded of the taste of history with all its elegant etiquette made with vintage clothes and carriages, the originality of the great italian architect Filippo Juvarra makes this late baroque place so particular, in fact the architectural plan of Stupinigi's palace is unique in all Europe. Each period of the year is good for visiting Stupinigi, in my opinion the best is from spring to autumn, to get there from Turin there are comfortable cheap public transports, there's one bar/restaurant outside the palace where one can have good fast lunch.
  • You'll be captivated by the original shape of this castle and its very beautiful interiors. The back garden are now opened but they still need to be finished, some of the royal rooms that are still closed because of the restoration.
  • Pleasantly surprised, the Interior ... are really very beautiful and well maintained and the audio guide included in the ticket is a great thing. The Park at the back you may not even visit
