Visit the elegant apartments hidden behind the simple facade of the Royal Palace, listed by UNESCO, accompanied by a guide. A trip back in time exploring the life of the King of Italy, also known as the King of Sardinia before 1861. Awaiting in the many different rooms are stories and anecdotes of court life, from the strict protocol to the menus for large official dinners, from the dances at the palace to the halls of government.
The Royal Palace of Turin, a World Heritage Site since 1997, is the flagship of the Savoy residences, known as the 17th-century ‘Crown of Delights’. It accounted, for the dynasty and the Kingdom, the symbol of their power and the place of the great court events: lunches, dances and diplomatic meetings that have marked both Italian and International history. The path winds through the different rooms to find decorations, furnishings, beautiful oriental porcelain, but also the use and the hidden meaning of small or large objects.
The path includes the view of Royal Armory, one of the richest collections of arms and armor in the world. The visit also allows you to admire the splendid archaeological weapons of Beaumont Gallery, medieval weapons, bladed weapons and firearms, to the weapons used by the Savoy kings in the 19th century, surrounded by valuable armor of the 15th and 16th centuries, in a fascinating setting.
