    A nice collection of object but no more. It is especially to visit this Museum for its architecture and gardens.

    Museum on three floors in a beautiful historic building, you get lost among the vastness of paintings and objects. Nice also the botanical garden with every plant in sight. The breathtaking view from the tower.

    Museum with beautiful collections. Castle with tower over the city. Huge lounges with frescoed ceilings or completely excellent even for major events to the city centre. Garden and Orchard within the walls with many types of fruit trees well marked.

  • 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.
