  • visited with interest in that many works realized inside Sicilian architect Filippo Juvara. ... including I admired the famous staircase ... then inside there are large Salt such as that of the old Senate Kingdom of Italy ... and in addition to admire the famous painting portrait of a man by Antonello da Messina.

  • There are collections of ancient art, pottery, lapidarium. There are two things that impressed me the most: the view from the tower and the great staircase of Juvarra. From gape!

  • 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.
