  • Beautiful location! Always new awesome installations here!
  • 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
  • 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).
  • I went to this museum and I was the only visitor there, I was walking in these rooms all alone, it was a bit scary :-) :-) :-)
  • 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.
