Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Avevamo preso il pacchetto della Piemonte Card con i mezzi turistici ed abbiamo approfittato a salire sulla Basilica con il trenino a Cremagliera. Evidenzio subito che è bene sapere che il trenino sal... read more »We had taken the package of Piemonte Card tourist transport and we took advantage to climb the Basilica with the rack railway. I highlight now that's good to know that the train goes up every hour, so if you arrive there that has just started a run (as has happened to me), you have to throw away the time to wait for the next ... Aside from the inconvenience, the basilica enjoys a good vantage point, although not the best, towards Turin and valleys Northwest of the city. The basilica is not exceptional as structure, but allows the climb with a visit to the dome. Also you can visit the tombs of royalty, very good guide, and the Royal apartments (we didn't have time due to the mix up of the train). During the lunch break (13:00-15) visits are suspended.show original

you can get here by a little train that goes up to the hill, if you have time it is a nice experience. From the top of the hill you can have a nice view of the city of Torino and visit this beautiful baroque style church. You can also get a tour on the top of the dome. In the crypt there are the tombs of some of members of the House of Savoy.
This is a must-see among Turin's monuments. This majestic basilica dominating Turing on top of one of the hills east of the city. It has a simple architectural style and interiors. Visitors can get up on the dome's balcony. The view of the city is breath taking.
If you stay in Turin for more than two days you definitely need to come here and enjoy the view. They even have a trail path if you feel like exercising!
A landmark in Torino, Super game it's a must see among the city's attractions. You get there by public transportation or by car. You pay a small fee and you can get on an outdoor balcony where the view is pretty impressive. In the back of the Church, there's a memorial monument for the great local football team that all died in a plane crash back in '49
Great view of the city. Must also visit the tombs underneath
