The visit to royal complex of Turin is a museum tour that extends almost seamlessly for three kilometres over an exhibition area of thirty thousand square metres. The Royal Museums is a collective name that includes the Royal Palace, the Royal Gardens, the Royal Library and Armoury, the Sabauda Gallery, the Archaeological Museum, the Chiablese Rooms and the Chapel of the Holy Shroud
The museums unite the buildings and institutions around the Royal Palace in a single complex. Some of them are on the small square in front of the Palace, which forms part of Piazza Castello.
Some rooms of the Royal Palace are only open occasionally for special guided tours advertised on the website, for which a separate ticket is required. These include the Apartments of the King (Victor Emmanuel III) and of Queen Elena on the ground floor and the royal kitchens below them, preserved in 19th-century style; the Apartment of the Foreign Princes on the first floor; and finally the Wedding Apartments of the Princes of Piedmont and the Dukes of Aosta on the second floor.
