Palazzo Reale, Turin

Architectural Building
Soaked in history and filled with art, Palazzo Reale was once the hub of the city’s political power. Together with the surrounding buildings, this palace formed a regional command center for the powerful House of Savoy. Originally built in the 16th century, the opulent palace was further expanded and modified in the 17th century. Renowned architect Filippo Juvarra was hired by Victor Amadeus, the head of the Savoy dynasty, to modernize the palace up to 17th-century standards. The architect’s most famous addition was a grand staircase. Later, Claudio Francesco Beaumont, a distinguished artist who was the dynasty’s official painter, embellished many of the palace’s chambers. Today, the palace offers visitors a chance to glimpse the grandeur in which the European aristocracy once lived and worked. Be sure to visit the on-site museum, with a historic armory displaying a vast collection of old weapons. Make Palazzo Reale part of your personalized Turin itinerary using our Turin vacation trip planner.

  • Very interesting and inspiring. I accompanied my students here on a field trip: all children were interested and fascinated by this spectacular building, steeped in history. A stylish journey into the past, imagining Kings, Queens and Knights ... Definitely worth a visit.

  • Wonderful Palace with sumptuous rooms from the ceilings to the floor. The normal admission fee (€ 12) or reduced (6 euros for young people aged 18-25 years) includes all the attractions of the museum complex.

  • Great ride in what is in my opinion a jewel of this city. Highly recommend taking the combined ticket to see also the Royal armoury.

  • Just open a part of the gardens that have been restored. For now the entrance is for free. Very pleasant to take a walk, the garden is simple but very well maintained. There are lounge chairs to relax in.
