We visited about 4 pm and there was no like to get up the elevator to the top. The 360 view of the city was great. I would have like to have plaques that explained what you were viewing (in English would have been wonderful) My DK book was helpful to locate buildings.

It is indeed a great view of the city from the top of this building but very expensive for a 1 minute lift ride to get up there.

This is a must do in Turin with a glass lift to take you to the toip and some great views of Turin. However unless you want to stand in a queue for 1-2 hours get there during the first hour of it opening.

Travelling up the glass elevator right through the middle of the building to the viewing platform is quite amazing. The view of Turin is splendid. The 1+ hour wait was a small downside, but worth it on balance.

I wrote a very (VERY) extensive review for this attraction under the National Cinema Museum (which is housed in this building) - please read more there, but this place is a must-see in Turin. Stunning views and a Willy-Wonka-esque glass lift suspended from the ceiling by nothing but steel cables. You can also see several photos in my other review.

Expecting a mole with some nice shopping, the mole appears to be nothing more than an elevator trip go a nice viewpoint. To enjoy this, you must be able and willing to wait, wait and wait. The first and longest queu was outside for about an hour. In order to buy the tickets. Would have been ok, if not two... More

The Mole Antonelliana is the tallest building in the city and was built in 1863 by Alessandro Antonelli as a temple for the Jewish community. Today it is used as the National Cinema Museum.

Go on a clear day so you can see the Alps. Queues were long but worth waiting in line. Very impressive building.
