Basilica di Superga is located outside the city of Turin, on top of a hill. It is clearly visible from the inner city if one would reach higher grounds. There are two ways to get to the Basilica from the city, either by walking, which takes about 1-2 hours from the base of the hill or by taking a funicular... More

Just returned from a trip to Turin. The Superga was one of the top things on my list to see, but it was quite a disappointment. The tram was cool and old, but very slow. It does climb a really steep hill so I get the lack of speed. That was not the problem. Once we got up to the... More

If the weather is clear and sunny, do go to Superga… the view of the city, the arc of the Alps and the plains surrounding Torino is magnificent… the church itself is very nice… in one section there are the tombs of members of the royal family (Savoia)

A very nice and interesting place to visit. The visit should take you about an hour or so. We visited the basilica and the torino monument behind it. Check opening days for the tombs and to go upon the basilica, since these do not open all days.

So my friend and I travelled quite a bit out of the turin city to see this place. We already foresaw a foggy morning, but we did not realise that it would be that misty. So we took the tram from Sassi to Superga, and when we were up there we could not see a single thing in the distance.... More

This basilica is situated on a hill from where you can see all of turin beneath you. This is a very quite place. Changing to sports, literally on the back of the basilica there is a memorial to the entire Torino AC crew and players who died in an air accident on the 4 th May 1949. Say a prayer... More

If you think that you will have a beautiful view over the city, you will be dissapointed. For getting up, you will have to pay 9 euros, but many people entered the train with their city ticket cause the gate can be opened by every sort of paper. If you are lucky and don't have control, we will save 9... More

Little mountain train is closed for maintenance on Tuesday, as is the royal crypt and the dome. Panoramic view somewhat limited by October mist. Tram number 15 out of Turin, then bus (replacing train on Tues) Basilica itself was OK but not spectacular.

I think that this church deserves a visit not only for the church itself but also for the way to go there which worths it! Also the view of torino deserves a glimpse while you are there!

It is set in the top of small mountain with a view of city. The church is beautiful. Every visitor to Torino should visit this.
