Armeria Reale, Turin

(800+ reviews on the web)
History Museum
Armeria Reale contains one of the richest collections of weapons in the world, focused on the 16th through the 18th centuries. These objects came from the collection of Charles Emmanuel I. Check out his equestrian armor and the jousting armor of Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy. You’ll find approximately 250 flags here, as well. Stand on the balcony for a bit of history: Charles Albert stood here to declare war on Austria, an event that ultimately lead to the unification of Italy. Consider the joint ticket for the Royal Palace, which allows entrance to here and the Galleria Sabaud. Armeria Reale is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Turin Edition.

  • A collection of arms and armor at prestigious horse and great beauty. The exhibition is extremely effective and spectacular. Explored inside the tour of the Royal Palace, is not to be missed and deserves attention. I don't remember other examples of thematic collections so well exposed
