Venaria Palace (aka Reggia di Venaria) is one of the most visited places by tourists who choose to come to Turin during the year. This architectural complex at the gates of the city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The Palace can easily be reached on your Vespa from the city centre in around twenty minutes.
One famous saying in Piedmont states that “Who visits Turin and not Venaria, sees the mother and not the child”. This is exactly right because discovering Turin also means visiting one of its most splendid and famous jewels which was reborn after years of restoration works.
In 2020 the Palace will return the last of its architectural beauties, currently still being restored, to visitors: the Ercole fountain.
