The Palazzo Reale, is the Palace that I decided to visit.
It is known as the Royal Palace, it is large and has been added to throughout the Savoy & Genoese dynasties.

We had to do a tour of the Palace, nobody was allowed on their own. The tour was good, the building was beautiful! There were a lot of paintings, and a lot of frescoes, evidently done by some very important Baroque and Rococo artist's. As usual, the Hall of Mirror's is wonderful, and so was the Ballroom & the Throne room, then there were the State apartments, an Atrium, and more than I can remember! After the tour, we could go out into the garden by ourselves. This was very nice, had a fountain, quite a few statues and some lovely red roses!

All original interiors, frescoes, stucco, paintings, sculptures, beautiful furniture and furnishing's and a nice garden, this was a Palace I loved seeing.

The only problem was.... NO PHOTO'S ALLOWED INSIDE,but in the garden, we were allowed to take them.

I did think the admission price for this Palace was very reasonable and it's really worth seeing if you have the time.
