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 first king of the Unified Kingdom of Italy. It also housed the House of Deputies of the Subalpine Parliament in the mid 1800s. Today it houses the Museo del Resurgimento, as well as the National heritage Authority.Very interesting to see inside, but we were placed in an Italian only tour with no offer of an English one ? Entry is very cheap at only 5 Euros and is worth seeing.
