Venaria Palace – A Gorgeous Day Trip from Turin

Venaria Palace – A Gorgeous Day Trip from Turin, Turin, Italy (B)

Italy is full of amazing palaces, and on my visit to Turin I saw so many stunning Royal apartments, painted ceilings and magnificent facades. But no matter how many you see, you can always see more! 

Not too far from Turin’s city centre, there’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site that you want to visit if you like beautiful things . Venaria Palace, better known as La Venaria Reale (Reale means Royal in Italian), is the former Royal palace built for the Savoy family. It was restored and is open to the public. It’s a short and fun day trip from Turin that I recommend you take while you visit the city.

However, it doesn’t have to be a day trip. There is a lot to see in and around the palace and its gardens, plus some temporary exhibitions as well, so you can easily spend an entire day there and stay overnight to explore the area the next day.

Another way to get to Venaria from Turin’s city centre is by taking the Venaria Express bus. It has several stops in the centre, including Piaza Castello. The ticket is the same as the normal 100 minute bus ticket in Turin that you can buy at kiosks around the city. It takes about 30-40 minutes to reach the palace on the bus. Pick up the Venaria Express from the tourist information office at Piaza Castello so you can plan your day trip easily. Alternatively, if you take the City Sightseeing hop on hop off bus, choose Line C and it will take you to Venaria, as well as to other points of interest on the way. ......
