The basilica is fine. But I suggest you to go behind it . It the backyard. The place where the Italian Team Last Grande Torino lost their lives (18 members ) in a plane crash. Emotional. A t-shirt left by a supporter has a writing on it..."la Grande Torino è ancora in trasferta.."

Great trip up on the tram unfortunately it only runs up on the hour and down again on the half hour. There is a tour of the royal tombs but only in Otalian. On enquiring if they had a tour on English we were told by the stupid lady that we're in Italy and they speak italian here - wow... More

Just want to say you can actually stay within the monastery/ Basilica Supergra which gives you the run of the place and the beautiful gardens for only 30 EURO a person ( I stayed in a twin for tow nights- wanted more) inc breakfast. Roberto is very accommodating- and its like staying in a forgotten palace. Very Cool for those... More

I got the no. 15 bus out to Superga from the city centre. It's a good 30 minute journey, and you see parts of the city the are away from the other attractions. The bus route finishes just outside the station for the cogwheel railway. After your 20 minute journey up the hill, you're treated to incredible views across the... More

I used the local No.,15 tram to Sassi and then the cog railway up to Superga. Lovely journey up the mountain. The views from the top over Turin are stunning. For those who are energetic, and not old and decrepit like me, there are some lovely walks through the forests from Superga. I decided to have lunch in the Restaurant... More

Nice place to come and relax enjoying the view over Turin and the Po river. Could be as well a nice place to come and have a picnic. We should also remember the Turin football club plane that crashed at this place in the past.

..We travelled to the hill of Superga by way of a cog railway. Slow, steep, it granted us some of the greatest views of the city but especially we felt we were traveling in the backyards of the beautiful villas that stud the hills over Turin. At the top of the hill, the Basilica, in its late Baroque-Classicist style will... More

On a clear day, fantastic view of the city and the countryside up to the majestic Alps. Stunning. The Basilica itself it's a beautiful piece of art.. but what makes it really magic is the location. It is also very romantic to be there at night (enough light to feel safe)... It can be reached by car or through a... More

This is well worth a half-day of your time. You can reach the base of the Superga either by bus or walking along the park that hugs the river Po all the way from Torino to here (and beyond!). Take the track railway up and back...a very nice experience in itself. The basilica is most impressive. Go around the back... More
