 My friends, welcome to b2ap3_thumbnail_Copia-di-IMG_2457.JPGMy Own Italy to discover Italy with my personal touch!

In your travel is to Piedmont , after admiring the beautiful Venaria Reale my suggestion is to visit the Villa della Regina which has been recently opened after a long period of restoration.




 The Villa della Regina is a villa of the sixteenth century situated on the hill of Turin.

It is part of the Savoy  Residences in Piedmont.




 The Villa gets its name of "Villa of the Queen" because it was the favorite residence of two spouses of The King of Sardinia, Anna Maria of Orléans and Maria Antonia Ferdinanda of Spain.

 The ducal residence constituted a model for the "vines" and the villas of the aristocracy and the bourgeoisie.

 The structure of Villa della Regina is typically a famous sixteenth-century Italian garden with an amphitheater in the back.

When you come to the driveway, you face the front of the square-elliptical terrace. The gardens have fountains and pavilions, the crowning of the garden there is a large forest.



The interiors of Villa della Regina are sumptuous, the hall leads to the Royal Apartments richly decorated, in which is placed in an exemplary way the eighteenth century taste for "chinoiserie"!

Abandoned after the exile of Savoy and hit by Allied bombing during World War II, the Villa has experienced as a result of 50 years of total degradation.


  Today, afterb2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_2519.JPG an important restoration, the villa has been reopened to the public.

 The upper floors will house the Regional Centre for Documentation and Cataloguing Cultural Heritage.




 b2ap3_thumbnail_Copia-di-IMG_2459.JPGThe Villa della Regina, in my opinion, is  extraordinary beautiful. 

Certainly a must-see destination in your holiday in Italy to visit the Cities of Art.

Leisure me: this is my tourism!
