How can you go to Turin & miss the Superga Basilica? There is an impressive view of Turin from the hill and both the Church, and the museum are worth a visit. Do not forget the Torino team tragedy memorial behind the church.

The view is amazing and we had a nice trip with the train. We visited a guided tour of the tombs very interested and we went up the stairs of the church. You cant describe the view. Its amazing.

The basilica Di Superga is an enormous building sitting on the hills above the town. I love the atmosphere up there at day as well as during sunset as the view is breathtaking! If you have a chance to make it during opening hours, do not miss to climb up inside the tower to be even a bit higher ;-)... More

The Basilica is lovely, and it's interesting to see the tombs of the Savoys, but the truly memorable thing about Superga is the view over the city. You can get there from downtown by tram 15 to Sassi, then the little train. If the train is not running, as it wasn't on the Tuesday we were there, you can take... More

A lengthy queue to path pilgramage partly covered. We only discovered that what we saw in the darkened Basilica is only a copy. Good to see though that the Basilica is not surrounded by souvenir shops, although there are many stalls in other parts of the city.

Our group of 18 pilgrims had our last private mass at the Basilica di Superga before going back to the Philippines.This church in the vicinity of Turin is of Baroque-Classicism; its dome resembles some elements of Michaelangelo's dome at St. Peter's Basilica. Set on top of a hill, visitors can see the ice-covered mountains overlooking the vicinity of the Church.

The Church is very nice and interesting. It is also possible to visit the top part at scheduled times and with a fee. The surrounding area is very nice and it offers an excellent view of part of Turin city and other parts. There is a free parking lot.

The place is easy to reach from Turin and it is surely worth a visit. The view is fantastic, especially in sunny days and the church is nice and has many beautiful sculptures. It is also possible to go on the cupola (at a price of 2-3 €) to enjoy an even better view.

The place gives amazing views and you can go on the roof as well by paying 3euros. We went there twice once during the day and then again at night to view the beautiful city.
