Soaked in history and filled with art, Palazzo Reale Di Torino 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.

  • This place is definitely a must visit. Everything is amazingly beautiful and well keep. The smell inside the palace from vintage furniture is gorgeous, it makes you time travel back to old ages. Staffs are super friendly and supportive all time, no rush at all.
  • What an impressive display! The armory section is gorgeously presented, with clear indications in Italian and English to aid the viewer. The palace section is simply astounding, you have a hard time deciding where to look since there is just too much to absorb. You leave this museum wanting to know more about the kings of the house of Savoy, while you stroll through the garden and rest by the shade of a warm day in Piedmont.
