Small but fascinating museum, detailing the events of the Spanish War of Succession. Turin played an important part in the loss of the French in the war. The museum shows one of the main weapons of the war by the city against its besiegers. There is an upstairs with an audio guide (there are no signs in English so its... More

Well hidden in the city center the Pietro Micca Museum is outside the typical tourist routes. The Museum offers a suggestive walk through the underground corridors of the XVIII century Torino. The visitor find himself projected in a siege besides Pietro Micca and the Savoia's army. A must see.

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

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
