Villa della Regina

Overview

One of the most elegant Savoy residences

A short walk from the center of Turin is this Savoy residence, surrounded by elegant gardens. It was built to celebrate the magnificence of the House of Savoy. It was once a simple hillside Vigna di Corte belonging to Cardinal Maurizio and Princess Ludovica, and later became a favorite residence of duchesses, queens and princesses, who held ceremonies and indulged in leisure time here. Visiting it will be a bit like reliving the court life that used to take place on this Turin hillside in its green setting. Seventeenth-century furnishings, decorations, and frescoes characterize the royal apartments that overlook the splendid hall. Outside, grottoes, water features and agricultural areas can be found in the Italian gardens. The Villa is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy.
