Arms Through the Ages

Armeria Reale is a museum to remind tourists of Italy's quarrelsome history as a group of militant city-states. Inaugurated in 1837 by King Carlo Alberto of Savoy, this part of the royal palace in Piazza Castello is dedicated to the preservation of weapons dating from the medieval period, including part of Carlo Emanuele I’s and other Savoy Kings’ collections and the armor of Otto Heinrich of Bavaria. See the weapons that forged Turin arrayed in a warlike tribute that Machiavelli would be proud of. If you don't have much inclination to see the remnants of war, there are still truly spectacular views of Piazza Castello and the royal palace that are certainly worthy of your camera.
