All reviews savoy family beautiful church amazing views worth the trip football team guided tour every hour worth the effort return ticket cable car plane crash the bus royal tombs panoramic view walk up city centre piazza castello
A sanctuary located on top of hill on the outskirts of Torino. The Basilica was built between 1717 and 1731 by the famous architect Filippo Juvarra for Victor Amadeus II of Savoy after the defeat of the French at the Battle of Turin in 1706....More
I was superbly excited to visit the basilica and royal tombs, however, when I got to the top of the hill I found out that it was closed for construction (there is absolutely no information about this closure on the website).
Very upset because it...More
If you don't speak Italian, don't take tours. The paper they give you takes 10 mn to read and you have to suffer through a visit that last forever.
The basilic is ok but in serious need of a clean up.
The view on Torino...More
You can leave the car and go up by cable car that runs every hour on the hour from the bottom. 30’ later it descends. Parking lot up there is not major so be advised.
Excellent views also from the top of the basilica.
Took the rack train from Sassi at 10am and arrived at the top at about 20 minutes later. Short walk from the station with gorgeous views over Turin. Went up to the cupola (131 steps - enclosed spiral staircase) and more or less had it...More
That was a lovely day outside Torino....the church is lovely , the Savoy tombs are really something.great and very profitable guide. The visit to the royal apartment is something you can easily miss. Nothing relevant to see and the guide really too over the top...we...More
If you want to visit this lovely place make sure that you go between 9am and 1pm or 2.30 and 7pm.
The facility is closed outsude of those hours. At Stassi Station the hours are clearly shown. The ride up on the Transvua Dentaria is...More
A fun trip. Bus 61 or 68 or tram 15 (1.50 euro) to Saasi-Superga. Finucular (9 euro round trip) to the top, short walk to Basilica. Stunning views of Torino. From here there are walking paths that seem to go many km. The funicular returns...More
Not city center, it deserves planning as Superga is out of the city, on the top of the nearby mountain, but if time and weather allows it is worth the trip for the views and the walks in the surroundings. Visit to the church is...More

Yes there is a parking area close the Superga church and it's free of charge . My recommendation is to leave the car at Sassi,where you can find a big free parking area and where you can get the train to reach Superga and... More
Yes there is a parking area close the Superga church and it's free of charge . My recommendation is to leave the car at Sassi,where you can find a big free parking area and where you can get the train to reach Superga and you can enjoy the ride in an ( I think ) almost 200 years old carriage .

I am presently writing from the US: every time I have been there, I have either driven or taken the train. So my experience with buses is not direct. There is however a bus (no. 79) that goes from the Sassi train station to Superga and then continues on to Baldissero. What I don't know is whether this is a regular line (I suspect so because it goes to Baldissero as well) or a substitute line for when the train is not working. I hope you may read Italian, because I would suggest that you go to a site, named Muoversi a Torino
