From the railway station:
Palazzo Madama is within walking distance from Porta Nuova (along Via Roma) and Porta Susa (along Via Garibaldi – about 2 km). Alternately, you can take a bus (routes 11, 12, 51, 55, 56, 61, 68) or a tram (routes 4, 13, 15, 18).
The underground parking garages – for which a fee is charged – are in Piazza Castello (“Torre Romana”), in Via Pietro Micca and in Piazza San Carlo.
Palazzo Madama is a large historic palace, which now houses the collections of the Museo Civico d’Arte Antica, Turin’s municipal museum of ancient art. Your visit consists of two tours in one – you will learn about the history of the building as well as about the works of art it contains. The visit covers four floors, taking you on a journey through time.
In the basement, down by the Roman foundations, there is the Lapidario Medievale – the medieval stonework collection – with stone sculptures and jewelery. The ground floor is mainly devoted to the fifteenth-century castle and to the art of the Middle Ages and of the Renaissance. In the Treasure Tower, you will find the famous Portrait of a Man by Antonello da Messina. The Baroque rooms on the first floor contain the art of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, with paintings and with furniture by Pifetti and Prunotto in lavishly decorated settings. Lastly, on the second floor, you will be able to see the decorative arts of all ages – ceramics, ivories, jewelry, fabrics, glasswork, and much more.
Discover the works of great artists and craftsman, and understand the culture and artistic tastes of this Alpine and frontier region, which was governed for six centuries by the Savoy dynasty. The immense collections on this floor were initially set up by the first directors of the museum as a catalog of models for Piedmontese craftsmen, and they now form one of the greatest collections of the applied arts in Italy.
A complete, though not exhaustive visit takes at least an hour and a half.
Your single ticket is valid all day for the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions.
