  • It's one of the amazing museums (Palace) I've seen so far in Torino! The artifacts are just mindboggling! The sculptures are such a pleasure for your eyes... The detailing on those are so precise and beautiful!!! Not to forget, the staff (at least the ones I've met) is really amazing and helpful! If in Torino, don't miss it! Have fun!
  • If you want to have a look on the city's history you have to visit this marvellous castle, from the Roman door, that you can see merged inside the building, up to the baroque opulence of the escalade and the facade by Filippo Juvarra
  • The history and art of Turin passes through here. Don't miss the amazing hall and the ceiling at the end of the stairs, by Filippo Juvarra.
  • This palace is one of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen in Italy. Regardless the exhibitions it is worth taking the time to visit the palace and be amazed by its architecture.
  • It's an awesome place to hangout with friends and eat good food. Love it..
