A day trip to Aosta in Febuary

by Traveltractorboiz

We are staying in turin for three days next month and would like your advice on getting to Aosta.

would you fellow travellers recommend this for a day trip? any advice you could pass on would be very much welcome. We would love to know any other suggestions you have for "a day out" train would be our prefered way of travel!! Thanks.

The city of Aosta is within easy reach by train from Torino, although my personal view is that wonderful Valle d'Aosta should be discovered more for its great outdoors rather than limiting a visit to its small capital city which, considering you will be based in Torino, doesn't have as wide a choice of things to do.
The moving window of a train would be worth the trip for spectacular views of the Alps. You might get off at Bard for a visit to its castle and proceeding past Aosta to the quaint village of Courmayeur could be a good option too for a day trip.
Try the "grolla" which is the local typical pot-like, wooden container for coffee mixed with alcohol and spices.

Aosta is a really beautiful valley between snowey mountains, with at the end the Monte Bianco, which is the highest mountain of Europe. The views are spectacular and when you drive on the highway (and I think the train follows about the same trail) to Aosta city you see a lot of castles.
Aosta city is a very charming little town.
If you like the mountains, it's the place to be.

Another possible day trip is to South-Piedmont, the Langhe and Monferrato region with all the vineyards. But here it's more difficult to go around by train, you really have to see the countryside.

Verdita, I'm glad that you appreciated this part of the world.
The original poster mentioned that he would visit in February and it's too late to advise.
At times I wonder why we should bother to waste our time into giving out info to someone who doesn't even reply or show up with a small, old-fashioned "thank you". That's life.

Travel Tips for Torino

Where to buy the tickets

by Calcio

There are some big ticket-offices outside Stadio Delle Alpi. There you can buy tickets to all sectors at the stadium, except for the away-section.

But decide first where you would like to sit, as I don't think it's possible to buy tickets for all the sections in all the offices.

Tickets are very expensive for Juventus-games, be prepared to pay 25-30 euro for the worst seats.

You can also buy your ticket via www.juventus.com, but then you must find some shop/café in your italian city (not possible abroad) where you can pick up the ticket.

On 95 percent of Juventus games it isn't sold out. So normally you can come to the stadium and just buy your ticket there before the game.

There are also quite many black market-salesmen, but I would advice you to just buy from them in the very worst of scenarios. They take out huge over-prices, and you'll probably have to call your local bank before you can buy one of those tickets... ;)

Definately cheaper to see Torino thought. And there is never a sold out Torino-game, so just go to the stadium and buy your ticket there.

Try "Bicerin" ("little glass" from local dialect)

by caldarrosta

This historic drink of Turin, which has evolved from the eighteenth century “bavareisa”, was created right here in this café of the same name which jealously guards the traditional recipe. It’s an exquisite, hot drink- a mixture of espresso, chocolate ( the process is a well-guarded secret) and fresh cream. Served in a tall glass so you can admire the mouth watering melange of colours, the bicerin is a pleasure waiting to be discovered by those who love tempting the palate.

Villa Scott

by Jetgirly

Fans of Dario Argento may remember the haunted house that was featured in Deep Red / Profondo Rosso (my favorite movie of all time). Imagine my surprise when I found out that this beautiful old house is located right here in Torino, mere minutes from the youth hostel I was staying at! It is located across the Po in the neighbourhood called Crimea, at Corso Lanza 57. Basically just stay on Vittorio Emanuelle and cross the river, keep going straight, and then turn left onto Lanza (it is well marked). The house is a beautiful example of Art Deco architecture and was built in 1902. The neighbourhood is full of beautiful old houses and you can climb to the top of the hill for beautiful, panoramic views of the city, but Villa Scott stands out as the highlight of Crimea!

railways

by pink63

Turin is well served by train. There 3 railway stations:
- Porta Nuova, the principal, from and to
where arrive and leave all national and
international trains.
- Porta Susa generally used to Milan and
Northern Italy
- Torino Lingotto, near Lingotto Mall, cultural
centre known for a lot of exhibition, like The
Book Fair

lovely traditionnal café (since 1763)

by perelandra about Caffè Al Bicerin

This tiny café was founded in 1763. It offers a variety of coffees, including the Bicerin that made this place famous, and several cakes. The Bicerin is the drink that gave its name to this coffeehouse. It is a mixture of hot chocolate and coffee, topped with some cream, and servec in a glass. You're not supposed to stir the drink, because you should be able to recognize the tastes of the different ingredients. It is quite sweet, and if you're an addict to coffee you might prefer a stronger coffee, but for me it was just the right thing on that cold afternoon. Enjoy!
