We took a 15 bus to Sassi to get the funicular railway up to the Basilica (€6 return). The trains are not frequent at this time of year but the trip was great if you like this sort of experience. The view from the basilica was impressive - snowy mountains in the distance but some smoggy haze over the town.

As you are right at the top of the City, you get amazing views all around. Make sure you have a great quality camera with you when you are here to get amazing shots of the active city below you.

Superga and its basilica are part of the top attractions of the city's list, impossible to go to Turin and not visit this magical place. A church that stands on top of one of the most famous hills of the city. From here the view of vision is nothing short of unforgettable. You can reach the top of the hill... More

A beautiful Basilica, situated on the top of a hill, with nice views. The tombs are wonderful monuments of art. The guide there explained details about them. We also visited the monument of the entire football team of Torino whose airplane crashed back in 1949. It is just a few steps by the side of the Basilica. I recommend this... More

Baroque at his best. The travel guide tells me that here the former kings of Italy have been buried. The baroque architecture is astonishing. The Basilica is situated on top of a hill and the view of the city below is purely breathtaking!! This is a place that any person traveling to Torino should visit!!

Choose a beautiful clear day for visiting the basilica. It's position makes it perfect for breathtaking views of the city and surrounding countryside. The basilica itself is well worth a visit - the tombs of a number of Savoy kings can be visited in the crypt of the church and the dome can also be accessed on foot. Guided tours... More

Very nice place to visit in torino. A good collection of very old mummies and igyptian culture. But if you dont take a guide it is not a worth..

Take the train ride up to the church. The views from the top, on a good day, are spectacular. Recommend taking a guided tour of the basilica of Superga.
