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.

While piazza San Carlo and Piazza Castello are more famous, this is the loveliest of Turin's squares. It is smaller but enchanting. You can just walk through it or sit in one of the (expensive) caffes on the piazza.

The piazza is unique in its elongated rectangular shape. It is quite charming and is close to the Egyptian museum and Via Roma. There is a 1986 novel, named after the piazza, by America author, Alain Elkann.

If you're walking around in the city centre, just a few steps away from the Egyptian museum, there is this lovely piazza which you really shouldn't miss once there. If Rome is mostly about fountains, Turin seems to be mostly about squares...this is one of...More

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
