This was the best surprise in Turin. You can have the breathtaking views of the city from the bell tower.
Intersting underground gallery with the collection of old masters with the most famous Baptism of Christ of Martino Spanzotti, marble altar, collections of gold and silverware. Very nice staff (thank you for your nice assistance :-). Museum is rather small but worth visiting.

Excellent collection including remarkable armour and reasonably accessible tower

This place is one of Torino's many jewels. I would not describe it as a small museum as others have; it has some remarkable things in it. Firstly the collection of old masters is impressive. Then it has one of the best collections of armour and weaponry I have ever seen – absolutely spectacular. I had not previously regarded myself as a fan of such materials, but Torino converted me. Then there is access through the museum to the upper part of the Duomo where the Shroud of Turin used to be housed (it is in the main body of the Church now). There is still some damage to this upper section from a fire occurring many years ago, but the structure of the dome is just fantastic.
Compared with other towers I puffed and panted up in Italy, the tower attached to this church was a relative breeze.

Interesting museum with high tower
Apr 2018 • Solo
If you have the Torino Museum Pass, it's well worth using it to see this small, but interesting museum housing many religious artefacts from churches around the region in the crypt of the current city Cathedral. Included in the museum entrance is the tower, which is quite a hike to the very top and unfortunately, as of April 2018, it's undergoing a major renovation so the views are somewhat (but not wholly) restricted by scaffolding when you get to the very top. It can only be done on foot, both up and down.
