Different Torino questions

by CarlGustaf

Hey there, my wife and I will be travelling to Torino to visit family this christmas. First question: I have been thinking about buying some music for my family and maybe also my wife (unless I decide to buy something else). Anyone know of a great place to shop for music in Turin? Are there any Ricordis there, maybe another good place? While I'm at it we might just check out a mall, if there is one? Anyone?

Malls in Torino suck. You can find all the same stores that are in the malls if you walk on Via Roma and Via Garibaldi. However, Lingotto is a mall that might be worth visiting because it's located inside the former Fiat factory and there is some neat architecture. The Automotive Museum is down near those parts too. Further outside the city center there is Le Gru, a shopping mall with the same stores as downtown plus an IKEA. There are a couple record stores on/near Via Roma- keep your eyes peeled or try www.paginegialle.it

Hi, for the music you should definitely go to Rock & Folk, Via Bogino 4 (right in the city center). Ciao Guido

Thanks to you guys, for this information. Note taken! I have something to go for now, however I will probably not spend so much time in the record store compared to the time spent on visiting the tourist attractions in town.

I might add that after having been in Torino I do recommend the Fnac store for music. I know it's French but the selection they have is heavy! Really good. I didn't locate any Ricordis, but there were some small CD shops scattered around. Via Garibaldi was a great place for about anything. Lingotto was huge in different stuff. I really recommend this place. Le Cru shopping Centre is equally great. So malls don't actually suck, according to my opinion, they are really great and much bigger than anything I've seen here in Sweden.

Travel Tips for Torino

My best football related moment in Torino II

by Calcio

Since I prefer Torino before Juventus I must also count the first derby 2001/02 among the best memories from the city.

I had been in Rome the day before, where I saw Roma-Atalanta, and then took the night train to Torino, where I came at 7 o clock in the morning. Had big troubles to find a hotel with a room at that time of the day, but finally made it and I could sleep for a couple of hours.

At three the derby between Torino and Juventus started, and for the Torino-supporters it couldn't have gone worse. After the first half Juventus were 3-0 up...

But then something happened, which made the Torino-people, and also some journalist in the presstand, go crazy.

Torino started to play a fantastic football, and before someone had understood anything, they had equalised, 3-3.

Then... since they met Juventus, and Juventus always are favoured by the referees, of course Juventus got a penalty in the last minute... It just couldn't be true...

The chilean forward Marcelo Salas stepped forward - and drove the ball high over the goal!!

Just one minute later the game was over, and Torino had "won" with 3-3.

All the way back to the town every tram was full of singing Torino-supporters, amazing! :)

Hiking in Torino

by ant1606

Except for minor depressions found along its four rivers, Torino lies on a mainly flat area to the west of the Po river (left bank). Opposite bank otherwise has an imposing hill culminating at the Colle della Maddalena which stands 500 m (1,650 ft) above the river - max elevation here is 715 m (2,350 ft). This geographic feature is proper ground for day hikes along a network - over 70 Km (44 mi) - of signposted and numbered trails. These go through the Parco della Collina Torinese, other parks and abundant vegetation for enjoyable walks during summer months.
Longest hikes can exceed 4 hours.
Link herebelow to a decently detailed map of trails. Typical seasonal hiking equipment.
At least comfortable shoes, water bottle, snacks and cell phone.

Società Promotrice delle Belle Arti

by Mikebond

The Società Promotrice delle Belle Arti ("Promoting Society for Fine Arts") is located quite far from the city center, you need to take bus n° 9 to reach it.
It hosts several temporary exhibition; the one I visited was called Gli impressionisti e la neve. Francia e Europa ("The impressionists and snow. France and Europe"). I enjoyed it a lot, since impressionism is my favourite artistic movement. You should really visit this exhibition, but I don't know what city is hosting it, if it is still anywhere.

Olympic Transport System

by marco2005

Free use of the new Metro of Turin, special olympic lines, and 25% more bus in the city.

On the 4th of February will be opened the first line of the Metro of Turin. Locals and turist will have FREE access for the olympic period. (see map in the pics)

The regular fare for the bus system, 0,90 euro, will last all day long (instead of 70 min).

Will be also increased the frequency of the rides (some line will work 24/24) and the number of the bus on service (1200).

There will be some special lines for the connection between the eleven parking lot around the city and the olympic sites, city center, and railway stations.
This olympic shuttle bus lines have a "X" before the number, and made fast connection with few stops (the special olympic stops have a red totem) from 10:30am to 1:30am.
For the opening and closure ceremony there will some special line (with a "C" after a number), to connect directly the parking and the stations to the Olympic Stadium.

on this site www.comune.torino.it/gtt/avvisi/mappa_olimpica.shtml you can view the complex grid of the special lines (sorry, too complex to show it here:-).

PARKING LOT
As forementioned thare are 11 parking lots in the outskirts for a total of 7000 cars. Are all free of charge, except the P1 (NW, where is the highway to Milan) and P6 (S, near to the Stadium) that are bookable via Internet and cost 10 euro per day.
http://gttpark.telepark.it/?Lang=eng

RAILWAYS
Trenitalia (Italian railways) has planned about 40 trains per day to connect "Torino Porta Nuova" and "Torino Lingotto" with Pinerolo, Oulx and Bardonecchia. From these stations free bus will transfer the spectators to the game sites.
But on Trenitalia website no info, so far.

Tre Galline. Awesome...

by azucca

Tre Galline. Awesome Piemontese food. Some friends took us to eat at this restaurant and it ended up being the best food from the whole trip!
Only with reservations Stuffed Fiore di Zucca (it's really great, and not just because it has my name!)
