Shroud Chapel

by priti.ro

I have recently read in a book that the Cappella Della Sacra Sindone, or the Chapel of The Holy Shroud is closed for restauration, after the fire in 1997. is that true? is it still closed? or is it open for visits? if it is open, i was wondering if you could tell me the hours between I can visit it. thank you for the information.

RE: Shroud Chapel

by Jetgirly

I visited it in April. You cannot see the actual shroud (which only goes on display every ten years or so- not even for the Olympics) but you can see a replica and enter the Chapel. There is also a free museum attached. I think I have a tip about it on my Torino page, you might find a web link and/or opening times there (I don't know the info off my top of my head).

The EXTERIOR is currently under construction, by the way.

The Chapel is open every day from 9 to 12 am and from 3 to 7 pm. It is not possible to visit it during functions. You will not be able to see the real Shroud (it is only exposed in special events, very rare) but the museum is full of pictures and information about the historical and religious events.

Visit a Torino or Juventus soccergame.

by Renescheffer

You can visit one of the games of Juventus or Torino. They play in the della Alpi stadium 8 km north from the train station. Frome here trams drive directly to the stadium in 20-25 minutes. Dont buy tickets in advance. There is always space enough. My trick: go to the stadium and wait for the ticketcounter and look round. There are socios/members who have one or more tickets left or a yearcard and their wife or neighbour is sick or has to work. For about half the normal price you can get in. I visited Juventus-Fiorentina in 2000 and sold a VIP card of 150 euro for just 50 euro.

Juve ore Torino ?
Hmmmm ...OK Torino because of VT member Piccolina an the Superga tragedy and their loss against Ajax in UEFA cup final 1992.

Everybody in Turin knows about...

by damnu

Everybody in Turin knows about these places but they are not actually in Turin so the traveler might miss out on them. I absolutely love the Royal Hunting Palace (Palazzina di Caccia) in Stupinigi just outside of Turin. It is well worth a visit and please spend the money on the tour inside. You will love it too. Then there is the famous Basilica of Superga on the hills overlooking Turin. At the bottom of the hill there is a trolley which takes you up to the basilica for a small fee. There are some of the remains of the Savoia royalty beneath. Try to take a guided tour here so you can catch the whole story. Also, in 1949 there was a plane crash on this hill and in that plane were the members of the Turin soccer team. Unfortunately, all the passengers and crew died so take time to say a prayer while you look at the memorial. Yet another site to see would be the great Scenic overlooks in the hills of Turin. Nearest the center of town there is Monte dei Cappucini. You can actually walk here if you are in shape. Don't go up unless it is a nice sunny day with a blue sky otherwise all you will see is grey smog. I think the best view of Turin can be seen from here. Also, on a nice day you can see the outline of the Alps that surround Turin. It is breathtaking. Next, if you have access to a car (the bus can take you up too but does not run frequently) you can go to a few of the parks in the hills such as the Colle della Maddalena and Parco Europa. It is worth the drive on a nice day and if you want a bit of fresh air this is the place to go. Ok, I am trying to pick out just the best ones which is very hard to do. Very outside of Turin(towards Susa) is the Sagra di San Michele. This is a massive church overlooking a valley way up high on a cliff. It is a work of art. I am amazed when I think of how they got all the building materials up there so long ago. PLEASE GO AND SEE THIS.

If you are already in Europe...

by damnu

If you are already in Europe and not far from Turin the train is your best bet. Otherwise you can take a plane and fly to the nearest airport called Caselle which is about a 1/2 hr drive from Turin. From there you must take a bus or a taxi into town. The taxi is a bit expensive and I recommend you travel light and opt for the bus.
Do not rent a car for sightseeing in Turin unless you want to spend half of your visit looking for a place to park. The public transportation (buses and trams) is efficient (unless they are on strike...again!!!). I do not recommend a bicycle because there is too much smog. A scooter or a moped is a good option to get around quickly but do not forget to wear your helmet or the police will stop you and give you a ticket. On the other hand, I do recommend you find a hotel in the center of town because after 8 p.m. the buses do not run as frequently. This way if you want to go out to the numerous restaurants you could either walk or take a taxi. Walking at night is fine if you are not alone. A car is helpful in the evenings for going out to restaurants and night locales. If you want to go on an excursion just outside of town you could take a bus if you can manage to find the right one but I think a car would be easier. Parking outside of Turin is no problem.

All Those Mummies Make You Hungry?

by Jetgirly about La Fila

La Fila is a pizzaria located near the Egyptian Museum. It is a nice enough place, with friendly staff and decent prices, but nothing about my meal there stands out in my mind. I ate a grilled vegetable pizza that had zucchini, eggplant and two unidentifiable vegetables that I personally would have rather seen un-grilled in a salad. If you're at the Egyptian Museum or the Savoy Galleries and need somewhere to grab a quick lunch, I would recommend La Fila.

Closed all day Monday and on Tuesday afternoon.
