A bit of an uphill trek, well not if you're being driven. This is a marvel of architecture especially the tombs. Worthy of a visit. Enjoy the super fit cyclists working their way to the top!

This is where the great Turin football team met their end in 1949. It is now a kind of shrine and very moving. Fans from all over Italy and indeed, the world visit for a moment of reflection.

You can take the old tram up the steep hill (about 15 minutes) and then enjoy the the beautiful view over Torino and the river Po. Bring your own food and beverages, there is only a tiny café.

Second time in 2 years we have made this trip and loved it both times. The short but steep journey is a pleasure in lovely historic carriages and the views from the top are worth much more than the very cheap fares.

there are two more stops but they are more aimed to residents than to tourists, these stops are located in areas with nearly no parking and no other convenient access, but your shoes.
