Soaked in history and filled with art, Palazzo Reale was once the hub of the city’s political power. Together with the surrounding buildings, this palace formed a regional command center for the powerful House of Savoy. Originally built in the 16th century, the opulent palace was further expanded and modified in the 17th century. Renowned architect Filippo Juvarra was hired by Victor Amadeus, the head of the Savoy dynasty, to modernize the palace up to 17th-century standards. The architect’s most famous addition was a grand staircase. Later, Claudio Francesco Beaumont, a distinguished artist who was the dynasty’s official painter, embellished many of the palace’s chambers. Today, the palace offers visitors a chance to glimpse the grandeur in which the European aristocracy once lived and worked. Be sure to visit the on-site museum, with a historic armory displaying a vast collection of old weapons.

  • Of course, I recommend the Torino-Piemonte card, you can visit the major attractions at an affordable price. It sins the small wardrobe in this case.

  • While the Savoys may have built this palace to compete with Vienna and Versailles, it doesn't really come close. The tour is short, but the rooms are quite opulent. This is a must-see from an historical perspective,We contemplated booking a tour with a guide but the cost would have been $124 for two people for 2&1/2 hours.
  • This excellent experience in beautiful Turin is a must-see. There can be a certain line up to buy the tickets but once you are in, the place does not feel crowded as it is plenty big. It is very well kept, and you have a glance into Italian royalty and their lifestyle. The building itself if very beautiful and so are the gardens… A great experience in Turin. So much to see. make sure you leave a few hours at least to do it justice. The antiquities museum was well done and the armoury was incredibly extensive.
