Giardini Reali Turin

Giardini Reali – Chilling in the King’s backyard

The point for someone visiting the city or for an inhabitant waiting to go on holiday (or maybe staying in Turin for whole spring/summer period) is staying as fresh as possible, relax and possibly enjoy the city and her (hidden) beauties.

The garden of Palazzo Reale is a great spot to do all of these things. The Giardini Reali are in the “backyard” of the gigantic complex of Musei Reali, that are really beautiful and worth a visit. The Giardini were closed for a long period and opened a year ago. They’re still a work in progress, with only a small portion fully accessible to the public. This portion in particular reminded me of English parks. You can “borrow” a chair or long chair, move it in the sun or under trees if you like a good “shadow tan” and just relax. No need to pay a ticket neither for the park nor for the accommodation. In the nearby Piazzetta Reale, just around the corner of the Giardini entrance, there is a bar for refreshments and a toilet (free for Bar users, 50 cents for other people). It’s a really quiet place and no one will bother you. 

So grab a snack and enjoy our itty bitty park.
