Route: Turin - Royal Palace - Duomo - Cappella Della Sindone - Mole Antonelliana
Duration: 5 h
During the tour we will visit three of the main highlights of Turin: the Royal Palace, the Duomo and the Mole Antonelliana. We will start from Palazzo Madama where you will visit the residence of the first king of Italy. The palace is adorned by gold, gems and luxury that reflects perfectly the wealth of the royal family of the time. Today the palace is part of the UNESCO World Heritage for its magnificent beauty and perfect representation of the Baroque era.  The Royal Palace has been built in the XVII century and it was home of Savoy’s family, first as Kings of Sardinia and Piedmont and then, as Kings of Italy from 1861 up to 1946 when Italy became a Republic. Take a leap into the past and walk room-by-room listening histories of Kings and Queens, Writes and Thinkers. Admire the furniture and the finest decorations and frescoes. Take the chance to see the Royal Armory, one of the richest collections of arms and armors in the world. It is exibhited in the Royal Gallery, frescoed by Daniel Seiter, it rivaled the Versailles Hall of mirrors. Go up to the second floor from the Scala delle Forbici ( Scale of Scissors) built by Juvarra, a great architect of Rococo age. A true masterpiece for architecture! Walk through the Royal Gardens and admire the “Fontana dei Tritoni. The gardens have been projected by Andre Le Notre, which worked also for the Palace of Versailles.  After the visit at the Royal Palace we will move at the Duomo, that is right across the square. The Duomo is another perfect example of the Baroque style and its architecture and decorations will leave you speechless! Turin's cathedral was built between 1491 and 1498 on the site of three 14th-century basilicas and, before that, a Roman theatre. Plain interior aside, as home to the Shroud of Turin , traditionally believed to be the burial cloth in which Jesus' body was wrapped and that is preciously preserved in a safe environment.  The separate Romanesque-style bell tower looks older than it really is; it was designed by Juvarra and built in 1723.  Next after a walk in the Roman Quadrilateral where lies Porta Palatina, the red-brick remains of a Roman-era gate we will reach your last stop, the Mole Antonelliana which was built like a synagogue, yet today it is the Museum of Cinema and the symbol of Turin where you will visit the fun Museum of Cinema and go up the terrace of the Mole Antonelliana to marvel at the view of Turin from above.
