A very small tour but the palace is very beautiful. Make sure to check out the armory room which was the most impressive.

Mainly notable for housing the Shroud of Turin, which is that piece of cloth that supposedly has Jesus' face imprinted on it. Whether you're a religious person or not, it's one of the world's trippier artifacts.

Quando ve lo troverete di fronte sarà un po' come essere davanti alla quintessenza dell'operosità umana, un soggetto di bellezza artificiale che vi lascerà sospesi in un gesto incompleto e totale di meraviglia. Così è stato per me quando a Torino mi sono trovato faccia a faccia con il Palazzo Reale sabauda.
Si tratta della prima e fondamentalmente più importante sedi sabaude d'Italia, all'interno è un labirinto di sale e ambienti domestici dove un tempo la casata reale viveva la loro vita.
Di sera, quando si accenderanno le luce esterne, potrete ammirarne l'ineguagliabile bellezza, come se le luci, il loro tocco, risvegliassero qualcosa in più del palazzo.
