What are tarocco cards?
Are they similar to tarot cards?

Basically, they are tarot cards. It was the name used for the first "official" tarot deck, the Visconti Tarocco cards. Some publishers still use the name today, notably Italian publishing houses.

To the best of my knowledge they are similar to tarot cards... but I've never seen much about them. I seem to remember that they are very old, and Italian... but I may be wrong.

Have you tried Google?? I always get excellent results there. :D

Tarocco cards are tarot cards, as tarocco is the Italian word for Tarot.

When shopping around for cards, be careful when a deck is labeled Tarocco, because some of the lower denomination pip cards may be omitted from the deck. (Which is great if you want to use the deck to play forms of Tarocco that don't require those cards, but can put a crimp on things if you want to use them for divination! ;) )
