(4.3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
The Villa della Regina is a palace in the city of Turin, Italy. It was originally built by the House of Savoy in the 17th century.HistoryThe original structure was designed in early 1615 by the Italian soldier, architect and military engineer, Ascanio Vitozzi. He died in 1615 and the project was passed over to his collaborators, father and son Carlo and Amedeo di Castellamonte. The original building was built for the Prince-Cardinal Maurice of Savoy during the reign of his brother Victor Amadeus I, Duke of Savoy. The property was built as a private villa with its own vineyard, hence its alternative name of Vigna di Madama. In 1637 Cardinal Maurice lost his brother and his sister in law Christine Marie of France became Regent of Savoy for her young son.Prince Maurice of Savoy and his brother Thomas Francis, Prince of Carignano opposed the Regency and fled to Spain. Following his return to Turin, Maurice died at the Villa in 1657 and willed it to his wife Louise Christine of Savoy who also died there in 1692. At the death of Louise Christine, it passed to Anne Marie d'Orléans, niece of Louis XIV of France wife Victor Amadeus II, Duke of Savoy in 1684.

  • Across the Vittorio Emanuele I bridge, is only about 1 km away from the mansion. Risers gardens in a semicircle behind the front garden with fountains and sculpture is great home interior decorations and works of art, and the Museum was amazing. Garden Hill overlooks the city of Turin. I think if you have time, between the city and museum tours go too good.

  • Amazing! Awesome! A must see in Turin. Not only the place is awesome but also the view of the city is great
  • no words to describe it. Just go there, get lost and enjoy every angle of that place. with your soul.
  • Excellent example of baroque building in Turin ,the location in Turin hills makes this fantastic Villa a great treasure of the city, its gardens and the splendid apartments with its great decorations and stucco take the visitor in a elegant and magic atmosphere, despite many uses of this Villa first as a royal residence of the 17th century and then as Institute of the Army's Daughters in the 19th and successive renovations the charm remains. I truly advice a tour to this historical building of Turin.
  • Royal's hill residence, there is an emicircular wine field,prospectical gardens and beautiful panorama on Turin
  • Originally the residence of Queen Anne Marie of Orléans, wife of Victor Amadeus II. It was the favourite summer residence of Queen for its dominance of the city. Recovered and restored in the last 15 years, presents itself in its former glory and with a breathtaking view of the city. Can easily be reached on foot by a walk uphill from the great mother of about half an hour. Italian gardens, frescoes, and the historic Royal vineyards from which it draws. Red wine freisa.
