This is such a special tour in Turin, do not miss seeing this historical gem! Riccardo was our tour guide. His English was wonderful, only to be exceeded by his passion for this museum. They only have the tours at certain times during the day, so check the times, so you don't miss this museum!

The museum of Pietro Micca was the highlight of the few things I managed to see in Turin on my ten day work trip there. It was easy to find but staggeringly understated. When we arrived the guides fussed amongst themselves to find the one that spoke the best English for us. This level of attention to service is typical... More

Visited the Pietro Micca Museum today. I arrived about an hour before a guided tour was available. Since I only speak English and tur current staff didn't, they called an English speaking guide to give me a private guided tour. He was so passionate about the story and the museum! I absolutely loved the tour and this museum. It's the... More

well prepared volonteers will accompany you in a travel back to the times of the sieges of the XVIII century and the way to attack and defend the fortress telling you the story of the famous siege of Torino in 1706 and the heroic history of the soldier who sacrified his life to rescue the town and block the attack...

The invading French army was outsmarted here with explosive force in 1706 through a combination of a remarkable defensive structure and its clever and determined resisting occupants. We were ourselves all but "blown away" by this extraordinary true tale of how Turin was saved from disaster, especially through the sacrifice of the city's hero Pietro Micca, who's own story only...

As has been said in previous reviews, tourists may not be aware of this museum. Their loss - it's a fantastic experience. Step into history and tour the Pietro Micca museum. This is one of the few attractions I know of where you are not standing behind a velvet rope, but rather walking in the footsteps of those who protected... More

This place is incredible. Run by volunteers, loved by the Torinese, and now, adored by me. €3 to get in, then a donation to help them a long which I was very happy to contribute to. I was on the Italian speaking tour but they will do an English speaking tour. I was lucky to have an English speaking volunteer,... More

We were lucky enough to stumble across this humble museum. Who would thought that the most important event of modern Turin rests below the streets and is easily explored. We were also lucky enough to have a question and answer period with one of the curators!! What an experience for the kids that we had with our group. Don't miss... More

A MUST DO that most tourists miss out on! The tunnels - which were built during the siege in 1706 - are still owned by the Italian military and I guess this is the reason why it is not as well known as others but make sure you go! Entrance fee to the museum is 3 euros and it includes... More

The visit to this museum was a true surprise. It will allow you to know more about the story of the city but above all to some extend live it. The guide tour is on weekends only and the guides are volunteers and the access fee of the museum extremely affordable for what you are about to see! The museum... More
