Fun tram ride up to the top of the hill, with a nice café overlooking great views of Turin. Lovely building but tours round the tombs are restricted and timed so don't so what we did and have a drink in the café first after getting off the tram or you will miss it and have to wait an hour.

Unfortunately we didn't take the train up to the mountain coz it's closed on Tuesdays. We took bus 79, which sets off almost every one hour.(Remember to check the timetable carefully) The view on top is amazing. Didn't expect the basilica to be so grand, and the horizon of the mountains and the whole city so splendid! A nice place... More

Have time at hand... You have a choice on how you go up the hill, you can walk up, or take a bicycle, or book tickets for a short interesting rack-rail journey uphill... The view of Turin and the river Po is breathtaking. The cathedral itself has splendid interiors with excellent sculptures. The exterior of course is one of the... More

With its rich history both past and present Superga is must stop for people visiting Torino. I make the trip each time I visit the area and am never disappointed with the view and experience. There are several ways to drive if the car ride up from the city is a challenge. Going up the back side the roads are... More

Didnt know there was a tram, the car ride up is interesting and not for the faint hearted. Once you get to the top the views are stunning and so is the Basilica. I loved the rom in the Basilica where people had drawn pictures and left thanks for their miracles. Well worth a visit for the view and the... More

A must for a trip to Turin the views are great - even on a misty day. Worth the effort in the car or by train or public transport. The Basilica itself is impressive too. Also the football memorial to the 1949 disaster a sad reminder to a great team. Toilets were rubbish so go prepared!

Nearly gave this attraction a miss but since we were persuaded to buy the Torino card we decided to give Superga a visit. The tram ride going going up is interesting and the views are worth the 20 minutes spent to reach the top. We only spent an hour at the top but you could plan a longer visit, perhaps... More

Nice visit, beautiful place. Consult the time of the funicular train that goes to the top before you take the bus to the Superga Station. With a good schedule you can save money and make a remarkable visit.

The tram is easy to get to either by cab, or by bus from the city centre.A word of warning, the tram leaves the station at Sassi on the hour ONLY and returns from Superga on the half hour ONLY so plan your arrival time unless you want to spend 45 minutes hanging around as we did. Everyone enjoys the... More
