  • Ticket not budget for a museum inside has everything and more, in my opinion a bit confusing, the ground floor not intrigued me especially, there are some nice pieces but the show doesn't make it. On the first floor with large historical salons alone worth the price of admission, magnificent. The second floor too many things crammed together and the exposure is too confusing, you can't fully enjoy also some very fine ceramics, invoice, on display. The garden below a bit disappointing.

  • The collections of medieval art - religious, and decorative arts are very interesting. Murano glass, crockery, silverware, pieces of ivory, etc., help you to understand how they lived the nobles of Italy. You can visit in two hours.

  • I would spend hours and hours looking at its facades. Truly wonderful, a mansion of the most noble of all. Its interiors: corridors, halls, stairways, are equally fascinating and reflect the great for its intended purpose, as "feminine". Always there are many exhibitions held within it. Only downside: after a while you get bored to see dishes, services you have provided.

  • 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.
