The place is enchanting and full of history. Savoy's (the once king of Italy) are still been buried there (or in chambery, France.. it's their choice) by right. Then there is the history about the "Grande Torino" one of the strongest soccer team the world has ever seen. And the place is so magnificent you shouldn't miss it. Still without... More

Took a number 15 tram then the rack railway up to the basilica. Views would have been great but for the haze but still a lovely trip.

If you have a car, this is a great place to visit. We went on a free tour of the castle, and visited the basilica. It's a lovely spot outside of the city.

It's a 15 drive from the city up the winding and narrow road to the peak where the basilica is. From there, it's also possible to go for walks and longer hikes around the national park. Superga itself is a very beautiful building, both outside and in. Being a church, entry is free, but it does cost EUR 3 to... More

We were lucky enough to be taken to the Basilica di Superga on a recent visit, although it's possible to get there by other transport. Apart from the fact that the weather was cloudy and prevented us from enjoying the stunning views of the city and mountains, we could still get a sense of what this location had to offer.... More

It was a great little train ride up. I had heard the car ride up was a little nerve wracking because of the twisty roads on the mountain. The Basilica could definitely use some repair and there was a museum SOMEwhere we never did find. But it was beautiful and the view was gorgeous.

Very nice cathedral on the top of a hill. You can go up by feet, or take the litle tramway going every 30 minutes.

Like so many Italian cities the highest mount has a big church. This church is OK, but the real interest is the history and grounds. The train is fun and views of the city are wonderful. There are very interesting biking and hiking trails that can take you to all kinds of places.

The church is beautiful, but the mausoleum with the royals is impressive. If you want to understand a bit more of recent (last 150 years) Italian history, then you have to visit this place. And do not forget to visit the memorial place of the Torino football team that crashed against the Superga hill.
