Visiting the Basilica Superga

Today we finally went up to the Basilica Superga, a huge cathedral high up on a mountain overlooking Torino. To get there we first took a bus (#61) and then the historic rack railway (vintage video on youtube). These trains leave every full hour (which sucks when you arrive at 3:05 PM) and cost 4.13 EU per adult on weekends and holidays. On summer weekends and holidays they seems to run every half hour. The trip is fun and takes about 18 minutes.

The weather was great, but not clear enough to enjoy the full view of the mountains behind Turin (there is usually quite some fog over the city).

Tomorrow I will write some more and post more photos.
