Great views. Great for Savoia history fans

Climb up to the balcony on the dome. Theviews are spectacular. The church itself has a quite gray interior. Worth stopping over on the way out of Turin.

We got here using the cog tram which in itself is a great experience sat in the open air carriage slowly travelling on a gradient of up to 20 degrees! The views down to Turin are breathtaking and framed by the Alps making you realise the cities amazing location. The basilica is beautiful on the outside and inside and you... More

Beautiful setting, fabulous basilica - and what a view ! Get a number 15 tram from the city centre to Sassi (last stop on the line), then buy a ticket at the rail station for the funicular railway to the basilica - the whole return journey is approximately €9 per person. The views from the top are stunning. Nice cafe... More

We took the number 61 bus to the lower part of the hill where the attraction is location and took the preserved railway to the top. Great views all the time . The Basilica was a bit expensive for the tours , and NO english , so a bit of a waste to be honest because we didnt learn or... More

To get to the top of this hill and visit the church you take a small train which makes the whole experience really special. Once at the top the views are speculator. The church is both beautiful from the outside as it is inside. If you're in Turin this is one trip I would definitely recommend

Basilica has very beautiful architecture. It is very popular for bikers and hikers, there is also funicolare form the city to the top. From there you have wonderful view on whole city of Torino.

The old train that is going up to Basilica di Superga was a nice short trip. Just easy, a little sightseeing. At the top, is the panoramic view. But just the same as the view in Mole Antonelliana. The church itself inside is not as fascinating as the churches in the center. We walked in the trail, closer to nature... More

A superb building. Make sure you take the optional walk around the outside of the dome and be sure to arrive early to view the crypt it closes at 4pm

We didn't go to the museum tour, but it was worth going to experience the view from the Basilica di Superga. There's a lovely old fashioned train ride up to the top (9€ for a return). It was 3€ to walk up to the top of the tower, but well worth the money. Great experience

360 view of the region, splendid monument, this is a must do for travellers. In a sunny day you will be able to see up to the Alps so this is not to be missed!!!
