We paid €10 each pp to enter this palace, and this is in the Castello Square and is a based on the different historical ages and uses of the Palace. The basement is the Gardens (not open) and the medieval floors and so it moves up. You find displays of glass, works of art, ceramics. Plus the Palace and decorated rooms. The stairs are located in a circular tower and each leads to a different floor and a different era.

There was a permanent collection of artifacts mostly from Italy, from several centuries. One of the changing exhibitions was a very small but interesting exhibition of perfumes! On a Sunday afternoon one had to queue for some fifteen minutes to get into the museum. The palace itself is really worth seeing.

A palace chosen by Madama Reale Cristina di Francia, regent for her young children, fused with the Savoia-Acaja Castle above the Porta Decumana of Roman times, and later inhabited by the second Madama Reale, Maria Giovanna Battista di Savoia Nemours, who called Juvarra to redo the palace in the Baroque fashion still present today, while leaving the posterior older part intact. It is the gravitational center of Turin and one of its most identifiable symbols. The grand escaliers bring to the upper apartments, where splendid collections of the Museum of Ancient Art are housed. Not a place to be missed.

Nice palace that was build along more than a thousand years. It's good and worth a visit if you have time, but it wouldn't be my first museum choice in Torino. There's a tower that offers a good birds eye view of Piazza Castello.

This is one of the most central attractions in Torino, surrounded by few big others. It feels underrated compared to what it offers. The building itself is a site, then there is Religious art, lapidarium, garden, classical art and ceramics. The rooftop offers a good view.
