We stayed here for three days visiting Turin, so we spent a lot of time in this location. The building (old parliament/palace/museum) is stunning, like most of the architecture in Torino. There are benches to sit, and during the day and into the night, various...More

Not very big square but cosy and organic. Obviously it's built especially for the Carignano Palace and now together it's a nice beautiful complex.
