The interior of this House of Savoy's summer palace is lovely and worthwhile to visit. I remember a marble sculpture of a veiled woman; though it seems impossible, one can see her facial features in great detail through her sculpted stone veil. Best of all for this visitor's family was a pleasant summer afternoon's walk through the beautiful garden behind the Castello (voted best in Italy in 2010). After a tree fell in summer 2018 the park was closed to the public and so it will remain until further notice. When it opens, hopefully someone will post here that the 3rd paragraph of my review is no longer true!

It's strange to see a royal palace right in the heart of a little town, but that's what you get when you visit Racconigi. The palace itself is rich in history, being one of the summer homes belonging to the Savoia royal family.Very reasonable entrance fee. Unfortunately, the grounds aren't open to the public at the moment.

The town of Racconigi is worth the detour and the 2-hour guided tour is worth every minute! English spoken.

The former Italian royal family owned dozens of extravagant mansions and palaces all over Piedmont, where they spent the summer - as in the case of Racconigi - or the winter - as the Royal Palace in Turin. From the 16th to the 19th c. the Savoia built and used a series of them, all replete with beautiful works of art and craftsmanship, and in the case of the summer mansions, huge shooting grounds. Racconigi is one of the most dramatic samples. The visit to the royal apartments is unfortunately rushed and the park can not be visited due to safety hazards, but I highly recommend it.
