The church is situated on the mountan a little bit outside the Turin. You can get there by train that costs 6 euro for the round trip or by car. The museum ticket costs 5 euro and the way up to the top costs 3 euro. From the top you can see the whole Turin. The church is very beautiful... More

This is one of the historical buildings in Torino. Everything was still in the original condition, and it was situated on top of the hill. To reach the place, it's either by car or I saw there was some kind of a tram can take you to certain location closer to the Cathedral, and you just walk a little bit... More

The basicilica is more beautiful outside than inside. The site is spectacular with great views of the city and mountains. Get there in the AM for best views. Hikes from downtown are feasible, but pack water and bring your lunch to have a snack at the top. We did not visit the kings tomb.

Not only is this a beautiful cathedral with a sad history (1948 entire Torino Soccer team passed away as their plane crashed in the back due to fog) but on a clear day you see all of Turin, Alps and the Po river. There are 2 great cafes where you can grab a cappuccino or a glass of wine, a... More

Beautiful and stunning! You are far above the city, so the views are not as good as from the Monte de Capuccini, but the place itself is awesome. Order Capuccini from the restaurant (photo-worthy and delicious). Also pay the small amount to go up the spiral staircase.

I absolutely love this place, being a foreigner in the county. I would suggest to reach the basilica by car, bus (for that check the lines and timetable), or by cable cart for a small fee (most romantic for me). Look my photos, and maybe you would like to visit it;) Sincerely yours, Small Russian Girl @lenochka_lenusya on Instagram for... More

The view here is great, however, the church is quite normal, nothing more or less. A nice walk up here, though

The church is stunning both outside and inside, but do prepare and research before you arrive to get the full value of the visit to this location.

On a sunny day it is well worth hopping on the funicular to see the Basilica and surrounds. The trip up the mountain is enjoyable with lovely views of the landscape and private gardens. The funicular only operates at certain times and this varies depending on the time of year so you need to plan ahead if time is short.... More
