First parliament building location
Sep 2019
A small square behind the entrance of the first parliament buildings that now housed the museums. The brick facade of the parliament building offered an intimate feel to this square.

Another beautiful Piazza
May 2019 • Friends
This gorgeous square wasn't on our list, but we visited it accidentally while waiting for the 5 PM nearby Egyptian museum entry time (reduced price then, see that review).
The square is very impressive with the same name Baroque brick Palace dominating it, now housing the Science Academy. Across this remarkable bldg is also the famous theater.

Beautiful, not too large square, in the city centre, near the famous Egyptian museum.
Great architecture and a couple of fine restaurants.

Nice square in Torino
Sep 2018 • Family
Piazza Carignano is a square located in the center of Torino, a city in the North part of Italy. It is a beautiful square, where you can see the Palazzo Carignano and Museo Egizio (Egiptian Museum). If you walk around the center, it is a good place to see. In the average.

I love Piazza Carignano. The architecture is a baroque dream. Just a great place to be. Walk through it and if you can stop for outside drinks.

A historical square in the center of the city
Sep 2018 • Couples
Very close to the Royal Palace, the Egyptian Museum and via Roma, the piazza was named for the palazzo Carignano, which represents one of the sides of the square. The palazzo houses the Accademia delle Scienze and is a beautiful Baroque building. On the opposite side stands the Carignano Theater. Perhaps best known to the visitors is the Michelin-starred restaurant Del Cambio, facing the Palazzo Carignano. next to the restaurant is a delightful bar, also owned by the restaurant, with indoor and outdoor tables. Ideal for an aperitivo and people watching.

Piazza Carignano is nice to see for tourist stud, near the Egyptian museum, with lots of cafes, stores, and old and ornate buildings. Clean, typical busy in some areas with traffic.
