There are more must-sees in Turin than you can shake a stick at. Discover its mysteries on an underground tour and its history in the Basilica.
Nestled atop the hill just outside Turin, the Basilica di Supergra houses the tombs of the House of Savoy. Stand outside the cathedral for great views of Turin with the Alps as a backdrop. You can get to the top of the hill by using a Trenio per Supergra (chain-train). If you're a football fan, you may be interested in visiting the nearby crash site of the plane carrying the 1949 Turin FC team.
Is there anything more famous? Turin Cathedral is the only example of Renaissance architecture in the city and houses the famous Turin Shroud. It is only a reproduction and isn't on show all the time, however, a photographic version of the imprinted face is kept above the casket at all times. Once inside the cathedral just ask for the 'Sindone'.
Journey back through cinematic history in this mutli-floored museum. Movie memorabilia on show includes Marilyn Monroe's black lace bustier, the robe worn by Peter O'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia and the coffin used in Bela Lugos's film, Dracula. In the middle of the museum is the Temple Hall; surrounded by 10 interactive rooms dedicated to various film genres.
The museum is housed in the majestic Mole Antonelliana.
If you're a bit of a petrolhead, or just like cars, then head to the Museo dell'Automobile. The museum houses a collection of 200 cars from among 80 different manufacturers; including the first ever Italian cars, the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost (1914) and racing cars by Alfa Romeo and Ferrari.
