The Royal Palace of Venaria, whose Italian name is Reggia di Venaria Reale, is one of the most visited sites in Italy. Located in the north of the country, more precisely in the Piedmont region near the metropolis of Turin, the palace is considered a masterpiece of Baroque architecture. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997, the building is listed as one of the largest palaces in the world. For several centuries, it was the royal summer residence of the Dukes of Savoy. The interior spaces are home to stately rooms, some of which are dedicated to important temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. Outside, the beautiful gardens of the Reggia include fountains, sculptures and archaeological objects.
