Project Description

Stupinigi Castle

The Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi is one of the monumental jewels of Turin. Once a Savoy residence for hunting and parties, after major restoration works, it is now an outstanding museum open to the public.

An accessible private van will offer roundtrip transportation from your hotel located in Turin or from the main stations/airports to the Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi: one of the most extraordinary eighteenth-century complexes in Europe.

Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed ad hoc to let you discover all the secrets of a place still retaining its original furnishings, paintings and cabinet-making masterpieces.

You will discover that the construction of the Palazzina di Caccia began in 1729 on a project by Filippo Juvarra and continued until the end of the eighteenth-century with expansion and completion works by Benedetto Alfieri and other important architects of the time.

The Rococo-style mansion was a favorite place for hunting in the life of the Savoy court, a sumptuous and refined residence favored by the Savoy for parties and weddings during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as well as a residence once chosen by former French emperor Napoleon.
