Today, you will get to take a private guided tour of the Royal Palace of Venaria, a magnificent example of Baroque art immersed in a beautiful village among French gardens, where important architects such as Amadeo di Castellamonte and Juvarra have left their mark. Please note that the Venaria Reale is located about 40 minutes by bus from the city center of Turin. The tour of the palace, gardens, and temporary exhibits takes about three and half hours. The picturesque and welcoming village of Venaria at the entrance of the palace grounds offers restaurants and shops overlooking the pedestrian street, perfect for getting lunch or dinner before or after the visit. In addition, gourmet food lovers can find the restaurant "Dolce Stil Novo" inside the Palace, which serves traditional Piedmont cuisine in an elegant setting. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
This former royal residence located outside of Turin was commissioned by Duke Charles Emmanuel II in 1675. There were once wonderful gardens on the premises, but they have since disappeared because French troops converted them to training grounds.
Meeting Point: your guide will meet you outside the main entrance of the Palace, 15 minutes before the confirmed start time.
