Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi, Stupinigi

(3.9/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of several residences located in Turin and surroundings. Used for the practice of hunting at the time of the Savoy was proclaimed in the years ' 90 world heritage. Undergoing a massive restoration project not yet completed, the building presents itself in all its glory. Especially beautiful on oval-shaped central room, the furnishings, the beautiful decorations and frescoes that reflect moments of the hunt. To complete the inner Park disappointing compared to the beauty of the main building.

  • I wanted to visit this place. The hotel staff at the ticket office is very friendly and helpful. The visit was especially interesting because of the audio guides. Describe in detail each room. I must say though that I prefer the Venaria Reale.

  • Fabulous interiors, although a little boring for kids. But from a side trip to see its splendor. I don't recommend the Park: not very big and "normal"

  • Exceptional 18th century hunting lodge of the Savoy dynasty. A must see. Beautifully restaured.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Park doesn't deserve the 3 €, although they are relatively few. Is bare and held terrible, can be visited only an area that perhaps is smaller than the garden at the entrance of the building. It is not taken care of, the only thing you can see are the weeds. Discouraged. The Interior of the villa, seen only by a door window overlooking the garden, looks very nice even though I don't know if it is worth € 12. Compare better the garden of "Villa della Regina", which is free but it would be the 3 €
