  • 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 »

  • 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.
