Basilica of Superga

This Basilica was built by the will of Duke Vittorio Amedeo II, in the 18th century. It is also sadly famous for being the place where the plane bringing the soccer team Toro crashed during the 1940s. Superga is located on top of the hill bordering Turin, from where you will have a wonderful view on the city and the Alps. To get there, you can choose between bus, mountain railway or long-distance footpath, hence it is also the ideal destination for a hike during a clear day.
