A friend of mine works in Torino and has parents in Fossano. When she cannot use the car, she uses train. So i guess it is the best way.

From what i found on the net, the misterious Autostazione Comunale (the bus station) is along Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, that passes right in front of the Porta Nuova Train station. proplem is that it is 3kms long and i could not figure out where exactly it is.

Hope someone will be of better help.

Ciao
Francesco

I guess the train is the most convenient option. Porta Nuova train station in Torino is located in Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. Personnel at the ticket counters have a badge on their shirt showing what languages they do speak.
Another option for tickets is to buy at an automated machine. These are yellow color, located near the train tracks and prompt language options. After you buy the ticket, either at the counter or the machine, you must validate it by punching it into small yellow machined before the train tracks. You would otherwise get fined aboard the train upon inspection.

Surf the above for schedules.

The "Autostazione Comunale" bus terminal is located right on Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, about 1 mile west of the train station and on the same side of the street. It's right in front of the "Palazzo di Giustizia" (Court House), nearly on the corner with Corso Tassoni. This is the final stop for buses coming from Malpensa, that is you don't want to get off at other stops. Once there, check for routes and departures at the main booth. I'm unable to find an on-line timetable. If no option is available, you might walk one mile to the train station ahead. I guess there are train departures for Fossano every 60 minutes or so.

Enjoy piemonte!

Travel Tips for Torino

Emergency Room - Pronto Soccorso

by ant1606

Well, there are better places in town. But in case of need, the Italian health system won't leave visitors and foreigners alone.
In first place, discuss with somebody who can address you or call a doctor for you. If you're alone and hav eno chance to talk to somebody, let's consider three different situations and obvious guidelines.
1. If you think or feel there's something wrong of modest entity, walk into a pharmacy and let them know - if language is not a problem. As an example, make sure you don't waste ER doctors' time for a sore throat or a bruise!
2. If you are in serious conditions, but capable to be on your own, ask for directions or help and reach an emergency room at one of these five major hospitals in town:
- Maria Vittoria
- Martini (also sometimes called "Martini Nuovo")
- Giovanni Bosco (also sometimes called "Martini Vecchio")
- Mauriziano
- Molinette
3. Urgent cases requiring an ambulance should be addressed by dialing either the 118 number (specific for ambulance) or 112 (carabinieri) or 113 (police). All these numbers can be called for free from any cell phone, regardless of your roaming/plan.

The nowhere square

by marco2005

PIAZZA BENEFICA

If you ask to locals where is the street market near the new Courthouse, or where is the the Chuch of "Gesu' Nazareno", they will answer in Piazza Benefica.
Well, try to find it on a map, and... it doesn't exist!
This is another place in this city which has a nome known by locals but the has another official name... In this case the official name is missing still.
The popular name is due to the presence in the past century of an Orphanage, named "Casa Benefica" (Beneficent House).
The square is in the Turin quarter Know as "Cit Turin" (little Turin), and is off of the beaten path (maybe I have to create some pages on this). The most interesting thing here are the eclectical buildings and the Art Nouveau Houses in the sorrounding.
In the pics the details of the palace in the square.

See my other tip on the same issue.

Superga

by Renescheffer

Because of my bad Englisch and lack on info i searched for this text elsewhere.
But i DID visit the Superga in 2000.
A nice trip !

"The Superga is int he Sassi quarter. The word eans "stones" in Italian and the quarter is so named because stones were brought here from the hill of Superga to create a vast open space on which to build the basilica itself. To complete his project the architect Filippo Juvarra effectively lowered the hill by 40 metres. Nature lovers can walk in the nature park, Parco della Colletta, at the confluence of the Dora and the Po, where many bird species have chosen to live and nest.
Proceeding along corso Casale, you come to the station of the Tranvia a dentiera, or rack railway. So again, if you don't have a car or have used public transport, you can make the ascent up the hill of Superga on the railway itself, a little red train making the three-kilometre climb - with 20% gradients in places - to the basilica. Alternatively, the steep and scenic Strada Comunale di Superga allows you to reach the large square at the top of the hill very quickly. Here stands one of Filippo Juvarra's and baroque's greatest masterpieces, the Basilica, built between 1714 and 1731 to fulfil a vow made before the Battle of Turin by Duke Vittorio Amedeo II. The Cappella del Voto, or Chapel of the Vow, to the left of the High Altar houses the seventeenth-century painted wood statue before which the Duke kneeled to pray for protection for the city. In the crypt below the basilica are buried the Savoy kings from Vittorio Amedeo II to Carlo Alberto.

It was behind the boundary wall of the Basilica that the aeroplane bringing the mythical Torino soccer team back home from Lisbon crashed on May 4 1949. A plaque in front of which people are moved to tears every day commemorates the tragic event.

METRO

by caldarrosta

IT IS REAL!!!!
Today, 06 Feb 2006 I finally tried the Metro, nice experience.
People from Turin have been waiting for this really long.
It takes around 10 min. form one side to the other.
The first Metro in Italy which does not have the driver because of the automatic pilot.

Opening Hours 04.30 - 23.00
(in the beginning it might be different)
Ticket € 0.90
(last 70 min. it can be used with buses as well)

Lost items Office is located in via Meucci, 4

Servizio Rapido !

by Renescheffer about Doc Speedy

It sounds like a tourist trap, but you will not find many tourist here. I prefer to eat here at lunchtime when there are no extra costs for servizio. Its full between 1230 and 14.15.
With employees and ladies who have been shopping. It is cheap. 3 course, for example
salad nicoise, pasta diavola and tiramisu with 25 cl wine will cost about 14 euro.
The baked patatoes (look for "cotorni") are very good. After the hustle and bustle you can sit and rest on on of the public coaches in the street on the left.

Update october 2004:
No more Doc Speedy. What is there now ? Still modern decoration, but the food....partly self service. And a lot of vegatables. Very healthy.....but not my kind of thing abroad. Macaroni alla diavola is very good.
