Architectural Building Historic Site
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.

  • I'd been to Stupinigi a dozen years ago when curated by Vittorio Sgarbi was an exhibition entitled "the evil. Cruel painting exercises ", but I never had the opportunity to visit the building; I filled the gap recently and I want to express a judgement of total satisfaction with what I've seen and especially: 1) to the significant organization that revolves around (internal shop, guide, help, etc) and 2) for the time, money and effort that has been and is still made by institutions, companies and individuals to revive and always improve one of the best treasures of our country not for nothing is included in the Unesco list of the World Heritage property; Needless to spend-sounding adjectives or paraphrase pieces of tourist guides, each visiting Stupinigi can form an idea; I prefer to focus on the effort to retrieve and make available the building effort even more remarkable in times of crisis and constant cuts to funds for use and public relevance.

  • A few kilometers outside Turin do you find this hunting lodge. Open to the public again for a number of years and it is restored. A large part of this Palace is on display with many rooms with original ceiling paintings but also original furnished rooms. Here you will find the Italian grandeur from the past. The entrance and parking are not really well marked (parking is free along the way for the Palace). There is also a garden that you can tour but apart from hedges States that not so very much for. The entrance we found in relationship pretty pricey (€3,-€12,-Castle and garden). At the entrance you will get an audio tour with different languages for information per space.

  • You will reach quickly from Turin by car. Visiting some rooms very well restored and possibly the Park. Very beautiful video about the restoration.

  • 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.
  • Wonderful place but not too different from other palaces around Europe
  • 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.
  • 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.
