you can get the opportunity to go to the top of the church (140 steps) and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. At the back there is a space devoted to the tragic death of the Turin football team where is noticeable the love people have for them still now.

A great location, offering spectacular views of Turin and the surrounding areas. Filled with history, there is a memorial to the "Grande Torino" air crash, one of the locations for shooting during the "Italian Job" filming. Plenty of car parking. Accessible also from Sassi in a historical train.

Even getting to this mausoleum is worth the trip : there's a vintage tram which takes you uphill to what has to be the best view of the city. The basilica itself didn't impress me much, but the mausoleum is worth a visit (although the guide does only speak Italian, so we had to rely on a small brochure to... More

This is a gorgeous church that offers a killer view. Getting to the top provides an panoramic view of the city of Torino and the outskirts of other northern Italian towns. The church itself is breathtaking and overwhelming beautiful! The inside is laced with detailed stained glass and the outer architecture can be stared at for hours. While the views... More

There is a small tram which brings to the top of one of the hills in Torino. The basilica itself is nothing special, but the view over whole Torino is amazing!

When in Turin this is one of the places to visit . It doesn't house the Shroud (which has recently gone back on display) but it gives you an impressive view of what churches looked like 4900 years ago.

A beautiful cathedral with stunning views over Turin. Well wort a visit. Memorial site where the whole Juventis soccer team were killed in a plane crash when it hit the hill by the cathedral. Pay a few Euros and go further up in the cathedral to enjoy the view. Maybe choose a clear day to really see everything.

Beautiful location high above the city. Get a bus to Sassi & get the old style train up the hill. The monument to the Grande Torino team is to the right of the Basilica, as you look at the church.

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.
