  • Beautiful Palace that was the seat of the State police, in the central area also the Museum is interesting

  • But who has curated the exhibition? The showcases with photos are so large that only those who pass two meters in height can see photos fit on top. You could at least split the storefronts into two sections with two faces, so walking around you could see all the pictures. The photos are then displayed in order of their numbering and it should be an exercise in "back and forth" to read the caption at the bottom of the Panel. Call it disappointing is little!!! (this opinion deals only with the view in question and not the Palace as a whole). A note on the staff, friendly and helpful, understood the fly my walking difficulties, it is instantly went a long way to favor me easier access.

  • A stunning architectural complex and an absolute must-see for any visitor! 2,000 years of history in this incredible building, that includes an Imperial Roman gate, a medieval fortified castle, a baroque palace and a wonderful collection of art. Don't miss to climb (there is also an elevator) the SE tower to enjoy a great view of the city of Torino.
  • Nice architecture and grounds. Everything was closed for the holiday so we weren't able to see much what it had to offer.
  • You cannot miss this palace if you are visiting the city
  • 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!
  • They have so many artifacts and not enough space, some of them are placed on upper shelves, where you cannot see anything.
