“For the view & architecture”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The best place in Turin to get a panoramic view of Turin and its surrounding lands. You will have to join the queue though. The elevator is glass-enclosed and zips quite quickly up to the observation deck. You get a 360 degree view of Turin as you walk around the perimeter. You can see the Italian Alps in the distance. Pay 6 Euro so you can also get to the Cinema museum located in the same building.

“good panormaic view”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

there is always a long queue both to go up & come back down in the lift. Going up and down in the lift was the highlight. The panorama has no legend so you can't really tell what you are looking at and the queuing takes many times longer than the walk around the panorama. Even the book in the bookshop has very little detail of what you can see. Spend more time in the museum and don't worry too much about the Mole

“Interesting building”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

very interesting architectural work. You can imagine Antonelli solving the problem of supporting this heavy cupola and building it higher and higher. It is now highest building of this type in Italy. We went on a Saturday and there was a queue of more than 1 hour. We decided to try again the following day in the morning and that worked out. So be prepared to queue or arrive early. It would be much better if they gave priority for the lift to those that also go to the museum, but they probably haven't thought about it. Definitely worth a visit!

“Great views”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is a must to see. From the heights of the tower you can see the snow covered alps. You can just do the panoramic view or the museum or even both. To do this on a clear day is the best. If you are scared of heights try and over come that fear. The elevator upto the viewing platform is clear glass. But again the view is amazing

“"Spectacular view"”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

My local friend took me to the famous Mole in January and it was absolutely worth waiting the infite queue - so, don´t get put off, it goes quite fast (or, if you wish to avoid queues, go up as soon as it opens) !! The ride up through the Cinema Museum took my breath away, but what I got to see outside was even better! Beautiful Torino with all its beautiful "cortili" and "piazze" and river Po was lying at my feet, not to mention the monumental Italian Apls towering above the city. Though, if you are superstitious and a uni student, you might wish to avoid visiting, as there is a superstition that you will not graduate if go up there. But I reassure you it´s just a myth - I graduated successfully despite going there! :D Oh, and don´t forget to visit the interactive Cinema Museum once you´re there!! It´s fun! ;)
