“If you’re on holiday in Turin, don’t miss the splendid Castello del Valentino. Originally one of the residences of the Royal House of Savoy, the building now houses the architecture faculty of the Turin Polytechnic Institute.
When you stand in the building’s sprawling, stone-paved front courtyard, you can look up to the steeply pointed roofs of the four corner towers, and get a sense of just how imposing a royal residence this would be! With the Savoy coat of arms front and centre, it’s an impressive, majestic building. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, Castello del Valentino is only open for tours on the first and third Saturday of every month. Don’t miss it!” – Bruno, Manager at Shuttle Direct
