Venaria Reale Site
The Venaria Reale site is a unique environmental and architectural experience of extraordinary interest. It is an immense, varied and imposing space where the visitor cannot help feeling drawn into the magic atmosphere of cultural attractions and amusements that were the pastimes of nobility.
Entertainment, pageants, concerts, exhibitions alternate with opportunities to enjoy one's leisure, direct and intimate contact with nature, sports, relaxation and the culture of fine food and wines.
Venaria Reale and the old market town represent a treasure trove of historic events and trials and tribulations. We sense this in the imposing baroque palace, with its vast gardens, one of the most significant examples of the magnificence of architecture and art in the 17th and 18th centuries.
We sense it, too, in the La Mandria Park, one of the finest examples of European environmental havens where numerous species of both domestic and wild animals live in complete freedom, and where a significant legacy of historic and architectural wealth is preserved. The new splendours and exceptional quality of the architecture of the restored 'Reggia' palace, the immensity and beauty of the gardens and natural spaces in the park allow visitors the opportunity to spend their time immersed in new sensations, savouring new experiences and enjoying the modern concept - accessible to all - of "taste", "leisure time" and the "art of living". The 'Reggia di Venaria Reale' royal palace and the residence of La Mandria have been declared "World Heritage" sites by UNESCO.Tel 011 499 2333
