This basilica is probably Turin's most beautiful basilica. If you are not driving however, it can be a bit tricky to reach. You will have to take a bus to the foot of the hill and then take the mini-railroad express to the top of Superga. But trust me it is worth it! The Basilica is very ancient, beautiful and... More

We visited Basilica di Superga on a Sunday afternoon. Went on a tour of the crypt of the Savoy family . The climb to the dome gives a spectacular view of Torino and the entire area. The Basilica in the Baroque style is beautiful...not to be missed.

The view is amazing and the Baroque church must be seen, especially the savoy crypt. It can be easily reached by train called "ferragliera" with a 15 minutes rides on Turin's hills. Furthermore if you're keen on Italian soccer there is a monument on the back of the basilica for one of Turin soccer team that had a plane crash... More

Went there on a sunny day, took the bus 68 from Via Po. The bus stops directly in front of the trainstation which leads to the top of the hill. The ride is about 15minutes. After reaching the top weve been just stunned by the views which are just beautiful! The basilica is a phenomenal building and it truly is... More

Overlooking Turin, this great Baroque church is a must...we visited on a Sunday and many families will take a ride there and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and views of Turin. Grand Basillica. The crypt of the Savoy Family should not be missed, but you can skip the tour of the residances.

This was a highlight for me on one of my recent trips to Italy. We took the regular way up and then hit back roads coming down. The views from where it sits affords you spectacular pictures of Turin and the mountains in the background. The building took my breath away both inside and out. This is simply a must... More

Loved the journey on the train all the way up. Do get on the terrace and take a look of Turin city from there. It will be etched in your memories. Don't forget to check out the memorial for the footballers who dies in the plane crash on the back of the Basilica. Don't take the train down. Instead take... More

nice place to visit. You have to take old train in Sassi station. It takes 18 minutes to go up. On top you have a beautiful view over the city. behind the basilique you'll find memorial stone from football team Torino who died in 1949.

The interior of the basilica is not really worth the trip. But the view from the Basilica is priceless. To be visited if you really have loads of time, not during a 2 day city trip. Can be combined with a hiking trip in the nature reserve that surrounds the basilica.
