  • I really loved visiting the museum with all of it's are, painting and collection of different types of utensils, ornaments, painting s and furnitures makes it an excited place to enjoy your moment here. Especially, if you're enthusiastic about the history and old things it will certainly amuse you in many ways and the tower of the museum is an excellent place to enjoy the panoramic view of the city in all directions.
  • Perfect! The palace is very well organized and cleaned. From the beginning to the end it's a complete overview of art works (Medieval, Barocco and others). Do not miss the visit to gardens and panoramic tower for a spectacular sigh of the city.
  • The tower is an excellent vantage point for photos - take the stairs, it's fun.
  • I admit I just saw it from outside.. and its beautiful: Having two architectural types in one building: crazy 😎
  • Loved the market there, the palace, Turin Shroud..
