Project Description

The Royal Palaces of Venaria and the Castle of Mandria

An accessible private van will offer roundtrip transportation from your hotel located in Turin or from the main stations/airports to the Royal Palaces of Venaria. A masterpiece of architecture and landscape, the Royal Palace is located a few kilometers away from Turin and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997.

Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed ad hoc to make you discover all the secrets of the Royal Palace, considered one of the most beautiful Savoy residences in Piedmont and subject of a long restoration, making it one of the most visited cultural sites in the whole country.

You will be guided through the exhibition spaces of the Palace through a path without architectural barriers that will lead you to the splendid baroque rooms, until you reach the wonderful garden, elected the most beautiful public park in Italy in 2019.
The garden represents a virtuous dialogue between archaeological settlements and contemporary works, united in a hymn to nature and the landscape. If you wish, you can use the supplied electric scooters to facilitate the visit.

By the end of the visit of the Palace, you will be accompanied to a renowned restaurant accessible from the terrace located in the city village of Venaria, where you can choose from the menu a rich selection of gourmet dishes.

In the afternoon, you will reach Castle of Mandria by van, which is located not far from the Royal Palaces of Venaria, immersed in a natural park of 3,000 hectares of meadows and woods. The garden too, like all the other Piedmontese Savoy residences, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Through a guided tour, you will discover the favorite residence of Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy, the first King of Italy, and all fascinating royal apartments surrounded by art and history. Fully furnished with precious artifacts, the spaces of the Castle contain works of art, fabrics and furnishings from the ancient Savoyard collections.
