  • The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Good English was spoken too. The tunnels are amazing and the €3 entry fee is VERY worthwhile.
  • Used the audio guide, all signage in Italian. We were the only 2 in the museum so had a private tour of the tunnels with a guide who spoke great English - well worth a visit.
  • Had a great experience and i loved the fct that they have guide translations in many different languages 😍
  • A great museum of a very important part of Turin history. Our guide spoke English very well. He was both knowledgeable and very informative. Without his input I think our experience here would have been lackluster. The tunnels are well preserved and definitely worth a visit. Many models, drawings and artifacts.
  • If you don't speak or understand spoken Italian very well, you're going to have a tough time interacting with the "help" desk and signing up for a tour. Once you've managed to sign up for a tour, they do provide a recorded tour in English so that you can follow along. The tunnels are historic and worth the visit, but they don't give you much time to linger and appreciate the history of the site; they bustle you from one talking point to the next.
