Reggia di Venaria Reale, Venaria Reale

Explore Reggia di 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. Make Reggia di Venaria Reale part of your personalized Venaria Reale itinerary using our Venaria Reale trip planner.

  • Sunday morning, cold but no rain. In the queue for the ticket to visit the Royal Palace for over half an hour! Of 7 cases available only 3 in business and in addition would be available because this. I can see it. It is absurd. I am sure the Palace will be spectacular but it really starts badly, very badly.

  • A journey through the history not only of a dynasty, the House of Savoy, but also of our nation. Huge, fascinating and full of surprises! The Royal residences of Savoy are our precious treasure!

  • As I wrote in the title, is to be seen, inside and out. Halls, frescoes, gardens. But then it's always a venue for events and exhibitions of various kinds to suit all tastes. A restoration that continues and makes visitors always new situations. Also accessible by bus from the Centre of Turin. I also recommend a walk through the streets of Venaria, close to the Royal Palace. Parking charges and not, just search.

  • The building is very impressive from the outside and the gardens would have been amazing had we not been visiting in the winter. The interior however was quite bare and there was often modern touches that sort of ruined the feel of the room. The palace in Turin is much more worth your time. If you're not there during nice weather I'd say you can skip this due to the distance from the city and the lacking interior
  • La Venaria Reale is one of the largest palaces in the world. It's a former royal residence located in Turin, Italy. The scale of the palace & it's garden are simply jaw-dropping. The artworks & carvings done the walls and the ceilings are treat to the eyes. It's listed as one of the world heritage by UNESCO.
  • Worth a visit for permanent and local exhibits. The weekend shuttle bus is worth the price.
  • For the price of the ticket, this place is a bad joke. Expect to see nothing but some prints, some video projections in Italian and one large ball room which is the only thing nice to see in this.... establishment. A huge disapointment. Highly NOT recommended.
  • Venaria real is at Venaria town, is a small town that feels like time has stopped, there are two entrance to the castle one is enthir the furnished part of the castle which shows you how monarchs used to leave anyway shows you tree Generation by generation it's surrounded by beautiful art in walls in ceilings there are wonderful exhibitions the try to transport you to how they lived. ...and then there is another entrance that will take you to the gardens of the palace! the colorful , and quiet gardens, please be careful when you walk through them, you might harm the beautiful snails that walk freely and carelessly through the Stone path they call home.
