Very interesting to see inside, but we were placed in an Italian only tour with no offer of an English one ? Entry is very cheap at only 5 Euros and is worth seeing.

This Palace was built in XVII century for Thomas Francis, son of Prince Emmanuel Philibert. Beautiful baroque architecture. Today this palace houses the Museum of the Risorgimento.
