went in winter but the best seats are on top, which is open air. (very, very cold) If you can, sit up front on top - the windshield blocks the wind. Takes about an hour or so and it stops several places, but as others have said, if you get off, it'll be an hour or so before another comes... More

This bus tour was ok. Not fantastic, but well worth doing to orientate yourself with the city. I did the Line A & B, 48 hour tour so it was a bit more relaxed. The buses didn't come along very often, from memory it was only once per hour, so you were kind of stuck if you had seen everything... More

I would not reccomend this for an able bodied person. Tour A is pretty much the center of Turin which can be done on foot and you wont be stressed about getting the next bus. Line B is where you would normally not see, and I would have seen it if the staff on line A would have told that... More

as usual, this is a pretty good way to see the general sites of a city. this route was rather short but still worth the 15 euros. virtually everyone got on and off at the main stop so the other stops didnt provide much reason to hop off.

Line A is a good way to familiarise yourself with the city. I did it twice to get photos from both sides. Pay the extra to get Line B and 48 hours. Visiting Lingotto, the automobile museum and the wider city on LIne B is well worth it. On line (third trip) I got off at about the third stop... More

The red bus tour which leaves from Piazza Castello is certainly well worth doing. Costing Euros15.00 it is a 55 minute tour taking in the main sights of the old part of Turin. The ticket is valid for 24 hours and you can get on and off at any of the 8 stops en route. Between the second week of... More

Just spent a lovely two days in Turin - a beautiful city with fantastic shopping (do visit Moda del Guanto the most amazing glove shop on Via Santa Tereza). The city is easy to walk around due to the grid system of streets and is very pedestrian friendly. The bus tour was a great way to get our bearings but... More

We spent one night here on our way home from Sorrento via Milan.The reception staff recommended a walk from our hotel near the railway station and it was a superb walk on pedestrian streets all the way to the river.The buildings and piazzas were stunning and the atmosphere was lively and good natured.There were plenty of restaurants and snack bars...

I had never considered this city but read about it on my-piedmont and was intrigued. Here is a city of greatness that for some crazy reason has been forgotten by most people visiting Italy. The wide avenues, attractive architecture, awesome restaurants, shops to keep you shopping till you drop and awe-inspiring palaces that I had never heard of. Piazza castello... More

We did the double decker bus trip at 15 Euros a head, and i found the commentary to be badly editted with some cliche baroque music going on and off throughout the tour and mixed commentary. Torino is so beautiful and i felt the tour was pricy and a bit of a rip off.
