  • It's a beautiful palace with some great exhibitions. Also, one must go to the top of the palace to get a decent view of the city of Turin. Must visit for anyone visiting Turin.
  • 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.
  • The palace is beautiful, but the collection did not surprised me at all
  • Whit Just 10€ you Can enter this beautiful Palace, see art pieces from different periods, and the magnificence of the first italian capital.
  • Just amazing palace. It is a must in Turin.
