Mole Antonelliana, Torino: 24 reviews and 40 photos
Icon of the city, and minted on the backside of the Italian 2 Eurocent coin, this downtown spire dwarfs all other city buildings. It hosts the National Museum of Cinema and an elevator - not recommended if you're afraid of height - takes you to the observation deck. Otherwise some exercise through an inclined pathway will help saving some ticket toll.
Across the Po river, perched on a hill, the former monastery of Monte dei Cappuccini hosts the National Museum of Mountain. Yes, Torino is also informally known as the "capital of the Alps" and this museum pays tribute to the alpine people and their living style. The deck offering a magnificent 270° view over the Alps is a must. Just avoid hazy days.
Monte dei Cappuccini is a monastery perched on the hill and overlooking the quiet Po river and home to the National Museum of Mountains. A picture taken from the terrace right at the museum entrance is probably the best shot of the city.
