Beautiful exterior of the cathedral and bell tower. Murals in the baptistry are also very nice. We climbed the dome. It was a steep climb but I made it with a lot of sweat and hard breathing (74 yo). The exterior view is something else...More

Ok place to visit. Nothing quite special after Milan. Not bad but nothing memorable. Good fun and reasonably cheap.

An interesting piece of history, The Shroud of Turin, is housed here. Worth the visit for the shroud but the church is not anything out of the ordinary in Italy.

The main reason to visit this church is to see where the alleged Shroud of Jesus Christ is housed. There is a special side chapel that has this hroud behind a glass window. The last it was displayed was in 2015. This is a catholic...More

I also just walked in. I spent a day in Turin (took the high speed train from Milan) and got to the chapel later in the afternoon. It's not far from the Museo Egizio.

No, there is no ticket to enter the Cathedral unlike in some Duomos in Italy. Also, the Shroud is in the left side, near the Altar as you walk in, from the front doors. This is an old yet beautiful and very solemn church.
