Named after the Princes of Carignano who were resident here from the 1600s, this historic building is today a landmark in the city of Torino. Artist and architect Guarino Guarini was given the responsibility of creating an exceptional residence for the family, and he remained true to his promise! The front of this mansion is a royal brick red, with intricate geometrical designs while the rear part of the structure is a striking white. This palace marks the birthplace of the first King of Italy, Victor Emmanuel II. Today, it houses the Museum of the Risorgimento.

Palazzo Carignano Reviews & Ratings
The Palazzo Carignano houses the Museum of the Risorgimento but it's possible to visit separately the royal apartments, including the ballroom that briefly became the seat of the first Italian parliament after unification. The guided tour, which takes place every half hour, is free. The guide did not speak English (he spoke slowly in Italian for my benefit) but there are descriptions in each room in English as well as Italian. However, the guide told several anecdotes about the building and its royal inhabitants that non-Italian speakers would miss out on.
The tourist card included a guided tour. it is beautiful palace with 4 beautiful halls,
The palace is very interesting on its own. The museum is about the process of unfication of Italy. Here there was the small parliament that created unified Italy. It may be difficult for non-Italians
One of the main squares in Turin. Even if it's not very known and famous, there is a great view and the atmosphere is always good and chilling.
I was always enjoying the italic architecture
