Interesting castle with beautiful view on Turin. Castle is well preserved but not so special as Stupinigi or Venaria Reale. Museum isn't so special it could be better, but if you have 2 hours to spend visit because you will get a picture of the Savoy family power. Ticket is 6.5€ for Castle and Museum.

A superb contemporary art gallery in all respects. The modern conversion of the old baroque palazzo (not actually a castle) is fantastic. The renovated old buildings are almost surreal, and the hill top location gives a splendid view back to Turin. And then there is the top quality international art. They have a work by Richard Long. He is from... More

This group of buildings have been brilliantly converted into an art gallery on several floors with the Manica Lunga, a long gallery for special exhibitions. The spaces have been renovated with style and imagination to display a large collection of modern and conceptual art. Very worth the journey.

Herrenchiemsee meets the Neues Museum! - this wonderful architectural intervention has restored a ruin in a way that's exciting and useful, providing large spaces for all those bits of pretentious rubbish that no-one needs.

Charming streets lead uphill to the Castello. It is a fine structure made all the more interesting by the myriads of exposed brickwork. It provides a marvellous backdrop for the contemporary artworks. The state of Castello restoration has the effect of ornate walls and ceilings, partial and more complete against which the modern pieces are displayed. It is very effective.... More

Close to Turin, interesting building and some exhibitions that are worth seeing. Defenetly for art lovers - some of the works are strange.

What a surprise! In a beautifully restored palace you will find a wonderful collection of contemporary art. The buildings are not immaculately restored, but that makes them even more appealing, it just feels right!

we reached rivoli with the torino tour bus, which travels through the different royal palaces. the museum is within an unfinished castle with modern extensions. the location, on top of a mountain, with lovely views extending as far as the alps, is fantastic and indeed we spent most of the visit there on the outside. as to the content of...
