This Basilica is at the top of the city, the view is gorgeous. You can either drive up to it or take the train , which is a fun way to the top. The Basilica itself it outstanding, the beaty inside and out is breath taking. However, if you are not aware of the story, in 1949 a plane returning... More

This is a must-see for anyone in the city. It provides the best view by far from both the parking lot and the rooftop, has many trails around it (even leading down to the city), and houses the tombs of the royal Savoy family and several important noble figures of Italy, including some kings. That's right, they're here, not in... More

We took a bus and the rack railway to Superga. It is a fabulous building, but looks to need a bit of maintenance. You have to have a guided tour of the Savoy tombs. Unforunately they only seem to be in Italian. We were given a brief summation in English, but the Italian tour was way too long, even for... More

The view from the top is wonderful. While the Basilica has a lovely dome, altars and organ pipes, etc., it was the tombs of the Savoy family I had come to see. The little rack tramway goes every hour. The tour started at 4.15 (in Italian only) and went for 45 minutes, so I would not be able to get... More

We got the No.15 tram from the middle of the City to the base of the Hill the Basilica stands upon - simple treck and the end of the line for the No 15 is across the road from the small Railway station for the scenic railway which climbs the hill to the Basilica. The train up is a twee... More

I prefer to drive to Superga via San Mauro Torinese.and Rivodora. Nice road. I arrived late in the afternoon and unfortunately the church was closed. The view over Turin was fantastic and breath taking. Walking around the main buildings you arrive at the Torino memorial. The place were the plane carrying the Torino football team crashed. And this is really... More

Take a bus out of Turin (no.61?) and get off at Sassi. Catch the lovely little train up through some beautiful scenery to the top and visit the basilica. The views of Turin are lovely and stop and have an espresso at the cafe bar by the station - wonderful views. All included in the torino+piemont card - worth looking... More

A beautiful view of Turin. Lots of fresh air and clear viewing. I did not go in the building, we drove up and parked a short time just to enjoy the view.

The inside of the Basilica is somewhat bare and disappointing. However, the drive up is pleasant and the view from the hilltop is splendid on a sunny day. Parking is scarce on Sunday and it may take some luck to find a space.
