  • We walked over the Ponte Vittorio Emanuel I, which has lovely views up and down the river then up the hill this church at the top. The views of the city were beautiful, with the Alps in the...  more »
  • The church is nice but the real attraction is the observation platform in front of it that allows for great views over Turin. It's a bit to walk but it worth the effort.  more »
  • I was there yesterday with my brother and friend and we enjoyed viewing the whole city from there. The church has nothing special to see  more »

  • This is a great place to get a superb view right across the city. You can get a bus from the city centre to the base of the hill which leaves you with a steep-ish but reasonably short walk up to the church. The church itself is also beautiful with a stunning Madonna and Child forming the backdrop to the alter.
  • Probably the best view of the city and of the Alps in the distance. It's absolutely stunning, specially at sunset. Although it's at the top of a hill, it's quite easy getting to the top. Definitely recommend the visit.
  • It was quite some uphill walk. At the top, we got an awesome view of Torino. The church is beautiful but the view is great. yoi can carry your pram if you are traveling with kid
  • Beautiful spot which is easy to get to and are able to see the skyline of Turin. Even when crowded its still worth a while to visit. Sunsets are beautiful over Torino and if you have a clear weather you can see the mountains in the background very easily. Bring a few beers, maybe your lunch/dinner with you and a couple of your friends. Open them up, chill, converse and enjoy your time up here. Did I mention its easy to get to?
  • It is a very good place to see the entire city of Turin. The church was also a good place to rest for a moment.
