Create an itinerary including Palazzo Reale Di Torino
Soaked in history and filled with art, Palazzo Reale Di Torino 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.

  • A step back through time as one tours the palace and sees artifacts held by the royal Savoy family. The collections of art and figurines allows one's mind to transcend back to the 1600s and forward. The armory was fascinating as it shows the progression of armor as well as the various designs coming from one region to another. The formal dining room is enchanting with all the crystal and the ballroom holds energy just waiting for its next gathering. I really enjoyed this glimpse into the past and the artwork is just amazing.
  • Spectacular. Rivals Versailles, redecorated and changed countless times, an interior design and architecture laboratory over the years.. Great layout for the tour, audio guide helps but you don't need it if you want to read the excellent signage in each room. Well worth the admission price and a must if you visit Torino.
  • This place is well worth the cost of admission (15 euro) and easily a way to spend half a day. The gardens are absolutely stunning and well maintained. We then explored the museum. I really liked all the different rooms you toured and lower lever was very interesting. The armory also had some very unique items such as a sword from Bonaparte was beautiful. There were so many paintings you could easily spend the whole day but we were tired and cut our visit short. I highly recommend this destination if you have a free afternoon in Turin.
  • Constructed in 1645, when Turin was the new capital of Italy, for the House of Savoy. Now under UNESCO World Heritage Site. The architecture is just beautiful and amazing. A lot of money went into construction. From the interior to the exterior the details are just amazing. Highly recommend to visit if you like to feel history.
  • Amazingly rich and decadent decor inside. Perfect time-travel-walk-through for kids. The armory hall is a must see. The royal painting/art collection galleria Sabauda is very very big and holds many of the old masters.
