Lovely panorama

Nice panorama, but the best is to go with the tram from Sassi. The interior of the Basilic is also very nice.

Absolutely beautiful and esthetic place with the most extraordinary view. When we were there in late January 2017, the church was closed, supposedly for the season, so make sure you check that out beforehand. The train ride there was unique but also quite pricey. Surely will be back once the open access to the facility.

A great place where to spend a few hours and find out a bit of the city history. When visiting this location, you´ll have the opportunity to contemplate the city of Turin.

The tram ride was delightful. Catch newer style of tram 15 from piazza castello to the Superga/sassi stop.one from the end of the line. The tram then doubles back on itself so if you miss it on the way out you can get off on the way back. The vintage tram ststion is 200m around the corner. Trais leave hourly... More

Basilica di Superga is about 30 minutes away from the centre of Turin by bus, then there is the option of getting the old tram up. On the day we went unfortunately it wasn't clear, so we were unable to see the views of Turin. Nonetheless Basilica di Superga is a large and grand building you are able to look... More

The Basilica di Superego is worth a visit especially on a beautiful sunny day as the road up there is a bit tricky! The view from the Dome over looking Turin is breathtaking! One must visit the lavish tombs of the Savoy Family.

From this beautiful basilica you'll be able to see a wonderful view of the city of Turin as well as the church itself, which offers a terrace area at a small charge. There is also a museum of the graves of the royal families who reigned on those territories subject to a charge as well. Definitely a place to visit.

Take the 15 tram from the centre of town and then the little railway up the hill. Visit the basilica, the tombs of the Kings (tours are carried out in Italian but this is not a problem). Then queue up and climb the dome 131 steps for views of the alps.

It was amazing. The view was beautiful, the Alpes and the city. Unfurtandly the day we went was a little bit cloudy or due to the contamination, so the city view wasn't that clear. We arrived by tram, the trip is nice and traditional as well as the station.

Thank Carolina L
