Basilica di Superga, Turin

4.5
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.

  • Superga is a special place that from below reigns supreme in the midst of the Hill but then view from above I was not impressed. You repira a heavy air in my opinion. I would recommend to enrich the area with more activity because it is a place that is not at its full potential.

  • Since the parties in the direction of the basilica is a very rewarding journey landscape is welcoming and relaxing. Then the tour of the basilica and gardens is magnificent appreciate why Turin from atop a spectacle.

  • Personally I found it very nice and very exciting the part dedicated to the tragedy of the Grande Torino. More comfortable train took to Turin leading up near the basilica. Pity about the weather that we weren't allowed to admire Turin from above but it is a good opportunity to come back

  • A must go place in Turin, located on southern hills overlooking the Alps and the entire Turin city. Basilica itself a spectacle. Had a peaceful and pleasant experience. Tryout the ancient train journey uphill. Frequency of train is about an hour, enough time to checkout the restaurant at the station. Yet this place bear a grinning past with entire Grande Torino team lost their lives in a plane crash behind this basilica due to bad weather in 1949
  • Impressive (more so on the outside than inside, to be honest) Basilica which is s must if you have transport; if you don't, there's s train up the hill which we haven't tried but is highly spoken of. Great views down over Turin and the Po.
  • Great view from up here! We took the car but you can apparently also take a small train!
  • Great spot to visit while in Torino. The funicular experience is good. I recommend going up one day after it rains so you'll have a perfect scenery without fog. In the basilica you have to pay 3€ in order to go up to the dome. Great if you come on a sunny day. Enjoy!
  • One of the best places in Torino. You can reach the top of the hill by public transport. Also you have very good trekking paths to reach. You feel like you are into a thick deep forest. It takes maximum 90 minutes and it is definitely worth spending the time and a very good refreshing physical activity.
