The Royal Museums of Turin, located in the heart of the city, offer a fascinating itinerary through history, art and nature.
Their origin dates back to 1563, when Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia moved the capital of the duchy to Turin and started an immense urban transformation and an enrichment of the dynastic collections.
The complex is one of the largest and most comprehensive in Europe. Throughout its 55,000 square meters of exhibition space, over 3km of museum walk and 7 hectares of gardens, every visitor can discover artifacts and testimonies that date all the way to prehistory and up to modern age.
The museum complex combines the Royal Palace, the Royal Armoury, the Savoy Gallery, the Museum of Antiquities, the Royal Gardens, the Royal Library, the Chiablese Halls and the Chapel of the Holy Shroud, brought together in a single compendium in 2014.
