Mole Antonelliana, Turin

The final and major landmark I saw at Turin was Mole Antonelliana. It is famous as Eiffel Tower of Turin. Better keep few hours in hand to visit the museum inside and to have a mesmerizing view of this city from the top, an elevator built within takes you up there. There was a long queue when I was there so, unfortunately had to miss the experience of visiting the tallest museum in the world.

167m high (the link has interesting description about how the monument got its final height) building; all I did there was crick my neck to get a good view of the structure. ((Deep sigh!))It used to be a Jewish synagogue, now houses the National Museum of Cinema.
