Basilica di Superga, Turin

(4.5/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
Explore the Basilica di Superga to discover the tombs of many princes and kings of the House of Savoy. The church you see here today is a result of a promise Duke Victor Amadeus II of Savoy made in September 1706. He climbed a hill and saw Turin besieged by Franco-Spanish forces. He swore that, in case of victory, he would have a monument built to the Virgin Mary on the very hill where he stood. Climb the church's spiral staircase for views the city and, on clear days, the Alps. Take a guided tour for access to special areas. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Turin holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Basilica di Superga and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
