    Palazzo Carignano is a spectacle, we are very fond of him. A façade overlooking piazza Carignano, the other on piazza Carlo Alberto. Inside a small courtyard with a contemporary work of art. In the building there is the Museum of the Italian Risorgimento (really nice with busts, information material, paintings ...), but that it is also possible to visit the interiors with the help of a guide explaining very precisely the history of those who lived and walls (the two views are separated and have two different cards).

    An architectural masterpiece, but undervalued. The rooms are few and guise, but worth a look. The visit is certainly enhanced by the guide very prepared.

    Beautiful building site in piazza Carignano in Turin. I was there at the opening fee on the first Sunday of August. The staff is very friendly, unlike other places of art in Turin where I could see little garbo. The very nice Palace. Only negative, at least with the free opening, there are few rooms open to visitors so you can fully appreciate this gem in the city.

  • Beautiful location! Always new awesome installations here!
  • A beautiful place with stunning rooms and a great story to tell on Italian unification and so on. Reason for three stars 1- the layout is a little unclear and you feel like you are getting lost. 2- a language problem, for info in each room in languages other than Italian, you have to find a card in the room...why not have a translation on the label like in countless other museums. The cards were at times missing and other times in tatters. Worth a wander around though
  • Historic palace in the heart of Turin. It hosted the italian parliament when Turin was the capital of the reign of Sardinia and Piedmont which eventually grew to unify the whole Italy. Fine example of baroque architecture with a splendid facade with bricks. A must see as one walks around the city center from the Gran Madre church on the other side of the Po river, then admiring the large Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the Mole (symbol of Turin) and going along via Po's arches up to PIazza Castello and Palazzo Reale (the palace of the Savoia kings).
  • Stupendous. A wonderful place very well located.
  • I went to this museum and I was the only visitor there, I was walking in these rooms all alone, it was a bit scary :-) :-) :-)
