Changing ttrains and stations in Torino

by rf.mas

I plan to arrive in Torino by train from Paris, at Porta Susa at 13:17 and then leave from Porta Nuovo for Savona at 14.00 on the same afternoon.

Can someone tell me please how far these stations are apart and what are the options/costs for transport between them.

THanks so much

If you are not overburdened by luggage you could walk this in about 10-15 minutes.
Otherwise there's streetcar service or taxis.

Yep.

For a visual clue, go to www.viamichelin.com and enter "Italy", "Porta Susa" and "Torino" as your starting point, and "Italy", "Porta Nuova" (note the spelling), and "Torino" for your destination...also, click on Options and choose "pedestrian". You will see the suggested route on foot...

I think that dnw is right about the taxi...given that you have less than 45 minutes and presuming that you have luggage, I think having the driver take you and your stuff straight to the other station with your luggage makes the most sense...

Note that the regional train to Savona leaves on the hour from Porta Nuova, so even if you miss the 14:00 one, you should be able to take the one at 15:00...hmmmn, I am getting some very strange schedules for this route (varying day to day on weekdays, which is quite unusual)...I wonder if Monday or Tuesday of next week are some sort of national holiday...well, what day are you going?

Thanks for the detailed info. That's great.
I will be making the trip on a Wednesday, 24th September. I had noticed a later train at 1500 so there is a good back up. Just want to get to Savona (or in fact Spotorno-Noli just beyond Savona) as early as possible and the 1400 train does not involve a change in Savona.
Cheers

1 euro and 5 minutes.
this take the new underground from Porta Susa station to Porta Nuova station.

If you want the luxury option take a cab for around 8 euro and a 5 minute ride.

ciao.

You Are Here.

A fact that no one can argue about is that Torino lay on a Roman scheme, with the city streets strictly hortogonal each others. So it's hard for a local to get lost. Normally.
On the hill of Torino, instead, the streets become winding.
But, no fear! When you are driving toward the hill, you find this road signal, that explain you all the directions you like to follow up the hill.
Easy. Innit?
(uh, remember that there is a queue of cars behind you, while you quickly take a glance to the signal ;-)

Agrigelateria

by caldarrosta

Do you really want to experience gelato instead of ice-cream?
Well, you gotta go to this place.
It's a wide place where you can enjoy in the nature, they even have a volleyball ground.

The address:
Cascina San Pietro, 29/A - Poirino (TORINO)

Torino - Public Transportation

by ant1606

Torino has a consistent network of public transportation and is served by bus, tram and one subway line. Individual tickets aren't sold on-board and must be purchased at newspaper, tobacco and certain other stores. Tickets must be validated by punching within the first stop and are valid for 70 minutes even if multiple bus and tram lines are required to reach destination. Punch again each time you board. This is anyway a single ride and in no case you can use the same ticket for return, not even if within the aforesaid 70 minutes. Subway works differently and each ride requires its title.
If the start of journey or destination lies beyond the city limits, an urban ("urbano") type ticked is insufficient. Buy the "suburbano" instead - suburban refers to the outer belt of communes immediately adjacent to Torino.
In addition to train lines to and from out of town, many destinations are reached by mid-range bus service. Check website herebelow for maps, weekly/monthly plans and info on suburban and extra-urban fares.

One of the most famous restaurants

by Mikebond about Baratti & Milano

"Baratti & Milano" is one of the most ancient, deluxe and expensive restaurants I've seen in Torino. It is located at the entrance of the Galleria Subalpina. I didn't have lunch there but if you have a lot of money, you may find it great.
