The Mole Antonelliana is the most iconic sight on the modern-day Turin skyline. Completed in 1889, the building takes its name from ita architect, the Italian Alessandro Antonelli who was also responsible for the Basilica di San Gaudenzio in the city of Novara.
Now housing the National Museum of Cinema, the Mole Antonelliana reaches a total height of 168 metres.
The building offers some of the best opportunities for panoramic views of the city and the surrounding area. You can buy a ticket for the lift that winds up through the central atrium of the Cinema Museum before reaching a vertigo-inducing viewing area. You can get the best view of the iconic tower itself and the Italian Alps behind it in the distance by climbing the nearby Monte dei Cappuccini.
