Rent a bike!
As soon as you go out of the railways station, you will see these bikes for rental. Are you happy? Well, calm down. Don't forget that you are in Italia, so everything is more complicated than elsewhere. If you want to start using the service, you must contact the town hall located in Piazza Generale Dalla Chiesa. You can call this number free of charge (but you may pay if you call from a foreign cell phone, I'm not sure about this): 800-363322.
The panel in the second photo shows all the points where you can find a bike.
Direct connection to (almost) everywhere
Although Chivasso is a small town, its enjoys an excellent position within the Piedmontese railway (and route) network. It lies on the major Torino-Milano stretch, which means that hourly local trains connect it to Torino (in around 15 minutes), Vercelli (in around 30 minutes), Novara (in around 1 hour) and Milano (in 1h30). But that is not all! From the Chivasso railway station you can take a train to Aosta, Domodossola, Asti or Alessandria. Notice, however, that direct connections to the last three destinations are more rare.
