Our guide Laura was great. He took us around Turin and showed us everything: from history to architecture and even took us to the market, where tradition is at home. He told us how the Turinese live, how they think, how modest they are. How history has left its mark. I highly recommend taking the organized tour because you will look at Turin with different eyes. The do-it-yourself tourist cannot imagine why Turin is the way it is. Thanks Laura. Marina and Camilla from Switzerland

Careful visit, the guide allowed us to know unpublished details regarding the Savoy family. Without the guide we would not have appreciated the history of the palace.

A beautiful palace, beautiful surroundings and a very passionate and friendly guide. An absolute must!
