If your travel is to Piedmont, and you are visiting the Park of La Mandria, I suggest you to follow me in this small village, so that you can admire The Reggia.



 La Venaria Reale, declared part of UNESCO’s World Heritage, lies at the heart of the Circuit of Royal Residences of Piedmont and it is connected to other Royal Residences in the vicinity and to Turin’s concentric Museum District.

  La Venaria Reale was designed and built in a few years (1658 - 1679) by architect Amedeo di Castellamonte. It was commissioned by Duke Carlo Emanuele II, who wanted to make the base for hunting in hilly moorland Turin.


The gardens of the Reggia are completely disappeared by the French when Napoleon turned them into the parade ground: very significant work of the complex was lost forever.

We have the designs of the era, showing the beautiful Italian garden which was divided into three terraces connected by stairways and spectacular architecture (like the clock tower of the first court) that connect them: the fountain of Hercules, the semi-circular theater and grounds.

 b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_7844-640x480.jpgThe La Venaria Reale Project, promoted by the European Union and coordinated by the Ministry for the Cultural Heritage and Regione Piemonte, was the largest restoration project in Europe concerning a cultural asset.

It aimed to revive the baroque splendour that inspired Duke Carlo Emanuele II of Savoy and now once again a symbol of modernity and culture.

If you wiuld like to have a great time I suggest you to stay at Diamante MHOtel.

The Gardens of La Venaria Reale excel among the Italian gardens for the prospects offered by the magnificence and the magnitude of natural landscape surrounded by forests of the Park La Mandria and the mountains of the Alps.
Since its opening in 2007 Venaria Reale has become one of Italy’s five most visited cultural sites.

Leisure with me, this is my tourism!
