I would strongly advise that if you don't speak Italian, listen to at least part of the audio guide before you go on the tunnel tour as it is very difficult to keep up otherwise. We were given our guides and they were on the...More
This is a really interesting, slightly off the beaten track museum dedicated to the French siege of turin. If you are English speaker, make sure you arrange for an English speaking guide. Without guide you can’t go into the tunnels.

Thoroughly entertaining attraction telling the story of Pietro Micca, a hero in the history of Turin. Personally I tend to enjoy the smaller museums which rely on passionate volunteers rather than the bigger ones which are mostly staffed by bored youngsters on their mobile phones....More
