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

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
