The basilica of Superga is very big and beautiful. You can learn a lot of history. If you are hungry there is a little restaurant and also a bar. If you want to visit it you must take the track at Sassi

We went by the Superga train on a very cold but clear day. From the centre the station of Sassi is easy to reach by tram 15 from Piazza Castello. We had a spectacular view from the top of the duomo. The only point was that we had to take a taxi because the next train back was 2,5 hours... More

The most pleasant part of the visit was the trip by the "train" up the slope. The train itself was like a visit to a museum. The higher up we got the better the scenery became under the clear blue December sky. The basilica on top of the hill was like churches here usually are and in my mind not... More

It took about an hour to get up there and apart from the amazing views of the town and the church there wasn't much around. Parts of the church weren't open either but with no explantation. The 'visitor centre' looked as if it were abandoned in the 90s. Wouldn't suggest going unless you wanted to see Turin from above.

It is located in the north east part outside of Turin. Public transport or car is required. Parking is free, but entrance is 6 EUR. Nice panoramic view and there is no crowd usually.
