  • The 3rd floor ceramics and view from the top are my pic. Dont miss the staircade. The medieval floor is also good to understand Torino. The baroque floor has many fine things to see. Don't be discouraged by the wall filler paintings. More English language labels would have helped me.
  • Beautiful palace that should be visited if you’re in Torino. Astonishing atmosphere, architecture, paintings, frescoes, furniture… Great views of the Royal Palace and surrounding area from the tower. 2-3 hours for a quiet visit.
