4.0
#9 of 58 in Historic Sites in Province of Turin
Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi was erected as a royal hunting lodge for the House of Savoy in what is now a suburb of Turin. Filippo Juvarra redecorated the palace interior in the 18th century for the King of Sardinia. Juvarra brought many of his designers from Venice to complete the 137 rooms and 17 galleries, which took years. The hunting grounds surrounding the palace have been reclaimed as a nature preserve. In this lowland forest, native plant species thrive that have died off elsewhere. Footpaths wind through the 18 km (11 mi) of land.

    The restoration of this ' monument ' is only halfway there, but the result is truly spectacular. To appreciate all the details would take a week or more. Each room, passageway, door, window is decorated with a different theme, though always related to hunting and gaming destination. Many portraits on the walls, the furniture of famous cabinetmakers, furniture. The Central Hall is truly a sight a vividness of colors of frescoes, stucco ... puts want to dance just to get in. The Park should be a spectacle when it bloomed. Unfortunately the season and drought has only had a glimpse of what could be.

    A visit to the Palazzina di Stupinigi allows you to fully grasp the great richness in historical and cultural terms present in Piedmont. Meticulous restorations occurred in this Savoy residence in recent years have brought back to its former glory by the rich interior, which reproduce the visitor with lavish decorations and some examples of period furniture. Unfortunately the care given in the restoration of the halls of the mansion is not reflected in the surrounding park left, in the absence of benches, high grass and curbs of fence, carelessness, and turning out rather disappointing to those who had the opportunity to visit other sites like the Venaria analogues or Racconigi Castle. Without having to leave the building and the grounds of the mansion, the absence of a restaurant or bar, replaced by impersonal vending machines, then leaves us to guess that a visit here asks tourists to linger just long enough for a fast paced. In short, there is still much to do to enhance this little gem of our great national treasures.

    Nice hunting lodge from the old royal family, the most enjoyable thing are the large parks, the stylish buildings and decorations of the rooms. Cannot miss a visit if in Turin  more »

  • This historical site is a must see for all. The facade and the gardens of this palace are really beautiful. The inside is being wonderfully restored to the least detail. The audio guide is a must and it is included in the entrance fee, which fee is reasonable. This site is 45 minutes bus ride away from porta nouva - bus 4n which stops in front of an old fashioned cafe and which same bus takes you back to the city. On another note don't leave stupinigi before you taste the home made ice cream from this cafe.
  • Exceptional 18th century hunting lodge of the Savoy dynasty. A must see. Beautifully restaured.
  • Wonderful place but not too different from other palaces around Europe
  • You'll be captivated by the original shape of this castle and its very beautiful interiors. The back garden are now opened but they still need to be finished, some of the royal rooms that are still closed because of the restoration.
  • Time has gone by since I visited this royal villa the first time , and I have to say that the vision is always awesome, the corridors, the fantastic style of the rooms together with the grand room worth the ticket's price. All the sceneries in the area are surrounded of the taste of history with all its elegant etiquette made with vintage clothes and carriages, the originality of the great italian architect Filippo Juvarra makes this late baroque place so particular, in fact the architectural plan of Stupinigi's palace is unique in all Europe. Each period of the year is good for visiting Stupinigi, in my opinion the best is from spring to autumn, to get there from Turin there are comfortable cheap public transports, there's one bar/restaurant outside the palace where one can have good fast lunch.
