  • Turin is a city that never ceases to amaze me: I discovered by accident that this beautiful baroque palace, seat of the first Parliament of Italy, can be visited free of charge! Just enter the door on the right of the entrance door and ask what is the first guided tour useful. You'll be catapulted into history in the company of passionate volunteers and preparations that will tell you stories and let you enjoy with due calm of all the details including the Interior rooms are richly adorned, and ending with a detailed description of the exterior façade.

  • Imposing the beauty and wealth it contains. It is possible to breathe the Royal environment, imagine the dances or the big political decisions, the bustle in the maintenance of spaces. Recommend.

  • The building is beautiful, you remain speechless. Is a fine example of European Baroque, closely tied to the history of the country.

  • Historic palace in the heart of Turin. It hosted the italian parliament when Turin was the capital of the reign of Sardinia and Piedmont which eventually grew to unify the whole Italy. Fine example of baroque architecture with a splendid facade with bricks. A must see as one walks around the city center from the Gran Madre church on the other side of the Po river, then admiring the large Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the Mole (symbol of Turin) and going along via Po's arches up to PIazza Castello and Palazzo Reale (the palace of the Savoia kings).
  • A beautiful place with stunning rooms and a great story to tell on Italian unification and so on. Reason for three stars 1- the layout is a little unclear and you feel like you are getting lost. 2- a language problem, for info in each room in languages other than Italian, you have to find a card in the room...why not have a translation on the label like in countless other museums. The cards were at times missing and other times in tatters. Worth a wander around though
  • If you visit in torino, stop for a moment in Piazza Carignano. Smaller and more intimate than the neighboring Piaza castello, this is the quiet "sitting room" of the city.
  • Really nice baroque.
