Once upon a time European royal families used to show off their power and prestige
and compete with each other by building sumptuous residences and castles at the
outskirt of town. The Savoy Kings of Piedmont made no exception. Over the
centuries they built a system of castles and hunting places called “crown of
delights”, of which the Reggia di
Venaria Reale is the gem. Versailles itself couldn’t compete with the
uniqueness of its background: the Alps range. The Reggia di Venaria returned to
its original splendor thanks to the biggest conservation project in Europe and has
been declared a World Heritage Site for
Humanity by UNESCO . This tour will make you pretend you’re spending time at
court strolling through dozens of rooms,
halls and galleries and enjoying endless gardens. The Reggia is located
at the outskirts of town (a 30-minutes drive or bus ride from the town center).
