Full description
Skip the long lines to the magnificent Royal Palace of Turin with fast-track tickets on this guided tour. Meet your guide at the entrance of the Royal Palace. Retrace the steps of the royal Savoy family who lived here during their reign in the 1800s and early 1900s. Imagine what life here might have been like as you tour the throne room, bed chambers, ballroom, and more. Admire the palace's impressive architecture and intricate details while learning about its history, which dates back to the 16th century. Hear stories of the events and ceremonies that took place at the Palace of Turin. Learn about the period that led up to Italy becoming a republic in 1946.

Abbiamo incontrato Sofia, la nostra guida per il tour, all’ingresso di Palazzo Reale. Gentilissima, molto brava, chiara ed esaustiva nelle sue spiegazioni e anche attenta alla presenza di ragazzi e di possibili loro necessità. Davvero soddisfatti della visita e della guida. Unico piccolo neo: il luogo di ritrovo non era chiarissimo sulla mappa e Sofia come altre guide non avevano ‘GetYourGuide’ sul loro cartello ma un altro nome che ha un po’ tratto in inganno. Ma tutto si è risolto in qualche minuto.

We spent an hour and a half very pleasant and interesting with our very nice and very well prepared guide Sofia who told us all the secrets of the palace and the Savoy family. We were only 6 so we were able to observe everything calmly and listen without alternating to see the details or run from one room to another and without even the need for headphones.
