The annoying thing about 'Day' visits to large historic cities is that you don't have time to enter all Museums and Art galleries. This building looks magnificent situated in the Piazza Castello , it certainly holds it's own compared to the other buildings.

Pleasant place, with exuberant decoration that creates a rich atmosphere. Under the construction, it´s possible to visit the archaeological site of ancient theatre. You will find art, architecture and history from various objects and their scenarios.

This is an underwhelming art museum. Probably after visiting the palace art gallery, was expecting much more. Though the cafeteria in the museum serve good food. Not much art pieces and not much explanations too.

The museum houses a large (and rather overwhelming) collection of various art objects from Piedmont on multiple floors. Unfortunately, the inner garden was closed when we visited.

This museum contains a bit of everything, from medieval, renaissance art (several masterpieces) to 17-18 century porcelain (the whole floor of it). The building is a nice renaissance castle shaped into 18 century palazzo.

The museum is housed in one of the oldest palaces in Turin and the Medieval and Renaissance collections are outstanding. When you are arted out you can go by lift to the tower for great views over the city.

Whilst we didn't spend too much time in the castle itself - gallery, the new garden was lovely on such a hot day. It is reconstructed as it may have appeard in medieval period and having plenty of shade!
