TOUR ITINERARY

Your private driver will pick you up from your accommodation in Turin to take you on a lovely 4 hour Private Venaria Reale Tour.

During the short drive from Turin to Venaria Reale enjoy the enchanting views from the car!

Upon your arrival you will meet our local guide that will help you to discover the gorgeous former Hunting Palace of the Royal House of Savoy. The complex is part of the UNESCO Heritage List since 1997.

Visiting the Palace of Venaria you will immediately enter in the Honor Court where once was located the gorgeous Fountain of the Stag. The main facade is decorated with cornucopias and fruits following the style of the 17th century. The two beautiful towers covered in ceramic’s tiles were added by Michelangelo Garove at the beginning of the 18th century. The towers are connected by a gallery called the Galleria di Diana built by Javarra together with the lovely Church of St. Hubertus. It was impossible to build a dome for the Church so the architect ordered to frescoes one in trompe-l’oeil.

Unfortunately during the Napoleonic Dominion the stunning gardens of the Palace were completely destroyed; however today you will visit a beautiful park with modern art pieces by Giuseppe Pennone. Where once stood the Fountain of the Stag, with its marble statues of hunters and hounds and a bronze stag, you will admire a beautiful 120 meters wide elliptical fountain:  the Water Theatre  will enchant you with its 100 water jets, color light projectors and steam pipes!

At the end of your tour meet your driver again to return to your accommodations in Turin.
