Indoor ice rinks in Torino are the foolowing:

PalaTazzoli (Stadio del ghiaccio Tazzoli)
Via San Remo, 67 - Torino
Probably closed on Mondays
http://www.comune.torino.it/php/impiantiSportivi/user.php?context=impianti&submitAction=dettaglio&refScheda=177

PalaMassari
Via Massari, 114 - Torino
Open 9:00 - 23:00 closed on Mondays
http://www.comune.torino.it/php/impiantiSportivi/user.php?context=impianti&submitAction=dettaglio&refScheda=197

PalaVela
Via Ventimiglia, 145 - Torino
Probably closed on Mondays

Typical fee is around 10.00 Euro including skate rental, or 6.00 Euro if you bring your own.
Skating area is that of a regular ice hockey field, 60 m by 30 m

Two more interesting indoor ice rinks that I tested are located in Pinerolo (about 40 Km south of Torino) and Torre Pellice (some 45 Km soutwest of Torino).
There is no outdoor skating space in town.

Enjoy!

Unofficial names: street by street

by marco2005

Here in Turin, as also elsewhere, have the habit to call some place, some street in a different way respect the official name. So it is useful to know the difference or you can get lost if you insist to ask about a place using the official name.
I'll try to list the most I remember.
NB: Piazza=square, Corso=avenue, Via=street.
Official name: "Piazza Carlo Emanuele II" -> colloquial version: "Piazza Carlina" (this is a funny one, because Carlo is the male name and Carlina is the female version of the name, and the locals want to refers to tha lack of virility of their prince Duke of Savoy)
"Piazza Repubblica" -> "Porta Palazzo", this refer to the presence of Porta Palatina in the nearby.
Do not confuse similar name.
"Corso Vittorio Emanuele II" -> "Corso Vittorio", so do not call it Corso Emanuele (one time one asked me this and I was really confused). And do not confuse the avenue with the square... "Piazza Vittorio Veneto" -> "Piazza Vittorio" or you risk a long walk.
Be careful about "Via San Francesco" because there are TWO streets with this name: "Via San Francesco da Paola" (near Piazza Carlina) and "Via San Francesco d'Assisi" (near Piazza Solferino) but the locals call both them simply "Via San Francesco" (habit that creates some mistakes).
Another source of confusion is that the street (and so the plate on the corner of the building) has a complete name (first name and surname) but we locals in some case adopt only the first name, and in other case only the surname. So "Corso Massimo D'Azeglio" is usually called -> "Corso Massimo", but "Via Madama Cristina" is usually called -> "Via Madama" (try to ask to some local where is Via Cristina if you want to see a scrap head contest)

Going to the stadium

by Calcio

Stadio Delle Alpi is one of the stadiums in Italy that is most difficult to reach, at least if you don't come by car.
From the center of the town (lovely town by the way, at least when it's sunny!) you'll have to take a tram, and then change to another one after half the way.
How and when? Well, don't ask me, they change the ways everytime I'm going there...
In 2000 it was much easier, when a tram marked "stadio" went from the Central Station directly to the stadium, but then Torino town decided to rebuild the squares around the central, and that tram seems to have disappeared after that. Make sure to go from the center in time anyway, as it could take up to one hour to get to Delle Alpi.

From the stadium it's easier though, since there are trams waiting directly outside the stadium (close to Curva Nord) that goes straightly back to town. Just make sure you don't miss your stop... :)

Coming by car is even easier though, as it's really well signed around the exits from the highway. Parking the car close to the stadium is normally not a problem either, but be sure to be there in time when it's a big game, since there are far more cars there than normal then.

Also make sure you pay some euro to the "parking-guard", and pay them what they ask for, even if it might seem expensive. Otherwise it's a big risk that some windows are smashed at your car when you come out after the game...

No, I don't like Torino that much... ;)

Cafes and Restaurants - "Quadrilatero" area

by ant1606

*** NOTE ***
For reference, also read the Quadrilatero tip in my "Nightlife" section. Reason for this tip also being here is that, for a large number of Turinese, nightlife equals eating and drinking till morning hours.

The so-called "Quadrilatero Romano" area is adjacent to nicknamed Porta Palazzo, which is the main historical street market in town in Piazza della Repubblica. The "Quadrilatero" develops south of here up to Via Garibaldi. A few years ago this pedestrian area was brought to a new life and today it's probably the trendiest in town. Cafes and restaurants are sometimes next to each other and range from local typical cuisine to ethnic specialties. Go to Piazza Emanuele Filiberto - there's a small underground parking for a fee - and stop for an "aperitivo" at Pastis Cafe, best if around 7 PM. "Aperitivo", namely, is a social drink that can be appreciated before dinner. Age of patrons spans from students in their 20s to young-at-heart yuppies in their 50s. Problem is that the aperitivo is usually accompanied by appetizers that are available in large quantities and varieties....that turn out to actually become your dinner! Another great place is Obelix Cafe located in Piazza Savoia. Still hungry? Wander in search of something more and end up your evening at Caffe' al Bicerin - located in Piazza della Consolata - for a cup of thick chocolate that the Turinese enjoy since 1763.
