  • The Palace completely rebuilt at the Museum. Beautiful zreštaurovany palac today serves as a museum where the collection can be seen in the collections of paintings, ceramics, and a variety of other subjects. When you visit more museums, it is better to buy a celodenni or more of daily meals

  • He also in p.za Castello, adjacent to the Royal Palace, this other tourist destination located within another historic building of the Piedmontese capital. Palazzo Madama. The Museum houses an important collection of works of art (sculptures and paintings), testifying the various periods of its history. Needless to emphasize the splendour of the "portrait" by Antonello da Messina or the staircase of the architect Filippo Juvarra.Ci would take much more time to devote.

  • This is a fantastic place to visit in Turin. There are several different elements to it. There is the gallery space, which has an amazing art collection. There are the historical areas, that tell you the history of the palace. And there are the lavishly-decorated rooms that show you how it would have been during the time of the House of Savoy.
  • You can have a nice view over the city center and the mountains. Unfortunately it was closed on Tuesday.
  • I really loved visiting the museum with all of it's are, painting and collection of different types of utensils, ornaments, painting s and furnitures makes it an excited place to enjoy your moment here. Especially, if you're enthusiastic about the history and old things it will certainly amuse you in many ways and the tower of the museum is an excellent place to enjoy the panoramic view of the city in all directions.
  • Unbelievable historical artifacts and art. Interesting exhibitions.
  • Perfect! The palace is very well organized and cleaned. From the beginning to the end it's a complete overview of art works (Medieval, Barocco and others). Do not miss the visit to gardens and panoramic tower for a spectacular sigh of the city.
