  • Palazzo Carignano, as the name implies, is a real mansion. L osi see the grandeur and the frescoes and the glitz that comes out. But it's also very "pop" in the sense that it is facing very to the masses and knows to be appreciated by everyone. Inside you will find the Museum of the Renaissance with great facilities and guides that explain the history of Italy. There is also a nice area for merchandising with Cavour's Andy Warhol-style shirts (I obviously I bought an XD). From the top floors can be admired Turin from above which is always a good show; always friendly and helpful staff at the Museum. I was intrigued and I think I will be back.

  • In the Carignano Palace was born Victor Emmanuelle II, first King of Italy. Each room is dedicated to the steps of the process that allowed the unification. To center an element that illustrates the subject in question and to illustrate concretely phases history with children. Records audio visuals are fine but in Italian. A brochure is available in French sold at the reception. Interesting for the French to understand the influence of the French revolution with Bonaparte in this process.

  • Very nice Palace in its structure but poor as all furniture was auctioned off or transferred into the Royal Palace. It was a very special visit because, besides being accompanied by a guide, we were fortunate and pleased to assist small monologues by young actors who personified characters that lived in the Palace, making us feel protagonists of that time!

  • 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).
  • 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 :-) :-) :-)
  • If you visit in torino, stop for a moment in Piazza Carignano. Smaller and more intimate than the neighboring Piaza castello, this is the quiet "sitting room" of the city.
