Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Piedmont / Province of Turin / Turin / Basilica di Superga
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.

Incredible view of Turin. Unfortunately, the train that takes you up to the Basilica was not working the day we went (doesn't work on Wednesdays), but there was still a bus which brought us up. The basilica is free to visit, but you have to pay a small fee per person (I believe it was 7 euro) for the guided visit of the tombs. Note that the day we went, the tour of the bombs was only running from 11:30 to 12:30, so make sure you are there on time. You can buy tickets on-site. Note: There are toilets - for the men's bathroom it is on the floor, which was weird ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Worth the trip. Number 15 tram out of Turin then the tram car up the hill. The tram car is brilliant and the views from the top of the Basilica are fantastic.
