Basilica of Superga

Basilica of Superga was built by the orders of Duke Vittorio Amedeo II, in the 18th century. It is infamous for being the place where the plane carrying the soccer team Toro crashed during the 1940s. Superga is located on top of the hill bordering Turin, from where you have a wonderful view of both the city and the Alps. To get there, you can take a bus, a mountain railway or a long-distance footpath, hence it is also the ideal destination for a hike during a clear day. Turin is surrounded by almost 700 km of hiking paths. The Basilica di Superga, along with the Victory Lighthouse at Colle della Maddalena, is one of the most popular destinations for hiking and trekking tours of the region.
