Turin Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale)

This classic aristocratic mansions houses one of the best displays of weaponry and armor from the Savoy’s Italian reign.

The Turin Royal Palace is an icon of the city and a monument to the role of the House of Savoy in Italy. Grand staircases, rich tapestries and an armory of historical weaponry make the palace an intriguing place to visit. Explore the fascinating story of the former Italian royal family and marvel at the sheer extent of their wealth and power.

This internationally recognized world heritage site has been a focal point of Turin since the 16th century and was home to the Savoys for much of their multi-century reign. Before you enter the grounds, look for the golden relief of Medusa on the palace gates.

The palace features numerous apartments that overlook the gardens and piazza surrounding the building. Stroll through to get a sense of European aristocratic life and view the incredible artworks and pieces collected from around the world. To enter the palace, join one of the guided tours or go through at your own pace.

A highlight of any visit is the gallery of arms and armor from the 16th and 17th centuries. Complete suits of armor line the halls and advanced weaponry from the era are on display as well. Move between the floors to view numerous staircases built by renowned architects from Italy and across Europe. Marble and painted frescoes on high ceilings add to the palace’s splendor.

Visit on a warm sunny day to appreciate the striking contrast of the white walls against a brilliant blue sky. Of course, the view at night is equally magnificent. The palace is lit from the outside, making it seem like something out of a fairytale.

The palace is adjacent to the Turin Cathedral, home of the Shroud of Turin. Go there to  admire a replica of the Shroud, with the original cloth safely locked away for most of the time.

The Turin Royal Palace is open daily, except Mondays. The palace stays open until the early evening. Visitors can make their own way through or join guided tours, which run throughout the day.
