The guy who told our group about the history of this once very important part of Turin (now existing only underground, and one part of the gates along the road Pietro Micca) put everything about the city into context, from the Superga to the siege of Turin. The guided tour underground at the end is the best part! Tours are... More

What a cool place to visit. The history that tunnels have is just amazing!!! Highly recommended to visit if you are in Turin.

Perhaps this is one of the most overlooked sights in Turin. The extensive underground tunnels are an amazing work of ingenuity and a nice escape from ť summer heat of Turin. The story of the siege of Turin and the local hero Pietro Micca is very interesting and definitely worth the 3 € entrance fee. The staff is very friendly... More

The story of the siege of Turin is an interesting one, and at the museum you can see first-hand how it played out in the "galleries" or long sapper tunnels the defenders dug out underneath the walls to the besieging French forces. I visited it as part of the "Turin Underground" tour which also includes a number of other interesting... More

I did not know Turin had a network of war tunnels in the underground! The guides in the museum will take you to visit it! If you manage to find an English-speaking guide (not so difficult) it's a nice plus, but even without them the tour of the tunnels is breathtaking! Two thumbs up to the personnel who were incredibly... More

I go to the Museum Pietro Micca in Turin on 26 Oct 2013. The staff tell me that parts of tunnels are closed due to the recent rainfall. I am a bit disappointed but still like to visit. I am a Chinese from Hong Kong and not able to speak Italian, I have always experienced being neglected in many other... More

We visited this museum after reading other reviews. We have a little italian and risked going without pre booking. We were informed that the tour would be in italian, and we were happy with this. Part way through the tour, where we understood about half, we were pulled from the group and offered an english guide. He was amazing, going... More

An unexpected treat!! I was very lucky to get the tip, because travel guides hardly mention this hidden gem of a museum. Nowhere in the world does one get the chance to touch upon the very nature of Siege Warfare and history at large in such a fascinating and educating way. I booked a day in advance (absolutely necessary if... More

I got this secret tip from my boss during my stay in Torino. You can visit the history of Torino during the wars with France. But the best: The museum includes a tour in the tunnels below Torino. At other tunnel tours you pay more than 20 Euros but here it is included in the entrance (only 3 Euros)!!

This was a very enjoyable experience, but we were lucky in having somebody available who spoke English and who could take us. If this person hadn't been free, it would have been far less pleasurable. Also, there is almost no English written explanation that could have helped. Much wasn't explained, and was taken for granted (for example, that we were... More
