La Venaria Reale, Venaria Reale
(4.2/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Explore La Venaria Reale, a 17th-century palace built for Charles Emmanuel II as a base for his hunting expeditions. History had taken its toll here; the structure only opened to the public in 2007 after one of the European Union's largest cultural restoration projects. Wander through the palace's permanent exhibit, Theater of History and Magnificence, which takes you through some of the most impressive rooms. Begin in the 17th-century Hall of Diana, continue through to the Great Gallery, and then move on to the Church of St. Hubert. The accompanying soundtrack by Brian Eno and the multimedia installations on court life make this an informative and atmospheric walk. Stretch your legs in the palace's 50 hectares (123.5 acres) of gardens. You'll find cafes, restaurants and a bookshop on site.

  • Not many years this jewel of art and Italian culture was recovered and returned to its former glory, because for a long time had been reduced to a ruin: company meritorious, because the setting is beautiful and wonderful. Definitely worth a visit, preferably in the spring to enjoy the flower park (I have been there in the fall and obviously it is not the most suitable season, but I liked the same time).

  • I went to Kenya to visit the exhibition of Brueghel (really nice) and I couldn't miss the opportunity to explore the Palace and its gardens. All worth it and, having visited the Palace in winter, I plan to go back to see the garden and surroundings in spring or early summer. There are no words to describe this wonderful house of Savoy and to show appreciation for the recovery of the complex which had fallen into serious decay but which has been restored, in my opinion, in the best way possible. A dwelling house of Savoy must see.

  • gorgeous abode that dives into the past and makes us relive the splendor of noble families-besides the Palace, defrauded of furnishings and furniture, but who were able to revive, beautiful garden and the stables. We can visit exhibitions, right now on the Tsar, on a Flemish painter. It is worth. (remember to take the card of Turin, worth)

  • Wonderful! It was such an amazing and lovely experience. I enjoyed the half of the exhibits, it was a perfect timing when we reached the garden with the arrival of the dusk, after that there was nothing much interesting anymore (at least for me) though there were still a lot to see. All in all I enjoyed it and I would totally come back. It's enormous, there's so much to see!
  • Very pretty. Great place to pass a lovely day with the person that you love.
  • Often interesting exhibits and great concerts took place inside this beautiful former royal residence.
  • Not to miss royal palace nearby Torino. It is a small Versailles!!!! Great garden, great palace!!!! There are also always 2 exibition, art photography fashion jewellery. ... You can spend here an entire day! You will be satisfied for sure!
  • An amazing ancient architectural marvel. It has amazing gardens and the place is mesmerizing. From the city you can take bus°11 or take a train from Dora GTT to reach here.
