Palaces of Italy
Latest update: 28 April 2022
The major Palaces of Italy are a legacy of the country's rich and complicated history.
Until 1861, Italy was fractured into a number of smaller states, republics, duchies and kingdoms, ruled by dynasties that wanted to express their power and to live in sumptuous surroundings.
The beautiful palaces can be found in every part of the country from the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy in the north-west region of Piedmont to the beautiful Royal Palace of Palermo in Sicily with the stunning Palatine Chapel among its highlights.
