Armeria Reale contains one of the richest collections of weapons in the world, focused on the 16th through the 18th centuries. These objects came from the collection of Charles Emmanuel I. Check out his equestrian armor and the jousting armor of Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy. You’ll find approximately 250 flags here, as well. Stand on the balcony for a bit of history: Charles Albert stood here to declare war on Austria, an event that ultimately lead to the unification of Italy. Consider the joint ticket for the Royal Palace, which allows entrance to here and the Galleria Sabaud.

Astounding collection. I didn't even notice the second floor filled with spears (couldn't go up there) and such. Weapons through the edges. And the horses are disconcertingly lifelike.
