Hello! Since the weather forecast for Torino is particularly promising, shall we head there this Sunday afternoon and hike up one more time to the basilica of Superga? Hopefully we'll be luckier than last year, when we found fog waiting for us at the top of the hill.

The idea is to catch a train to Torino (at the time of this writing, Italo is particularly inexpensive) and arrive there just after midday.
If the weather is fine, we'll hike up to Superga, so as to reach the Unesco-heritage basilica: in fact, the church is the burial place of the royal Savoia family and supposedly a beautiful lookout point over the Alps. For coming back, we'll probably take the tram (although, at 6 euro, it's not particularly cheap)

Should the weather be cloudy, we can replace Superga with the nearer Monte dei Cappuccini and spend more time in Torino (in which case, we could visit Palazzo Madama, a Unesco-heritage castle-palace that's Protected content old)
