A few questions for Turin EXPERTS

Hi Turin Destination Experts - I need your help please.

1. From Caselle Airport to Porta Nuova station, is the airport bus the only option or is there also a train that takes you from the airport to Porta Nuova station? If it is only the airport bus, then where can I find the bus stop after coming out of the airport? Does the bus go direct to Porta Nuova or does it make some stops on the way?

2. Does Turin have a 3 or 5 day transport pass like other Italian cities which can used on public transport as many times as one likes and travel anywhere within the city? If so, what is the cost of 3 and 5 day passes and from where can I buy these? Can I get it at the airport and will it also do for the airport bus into the city? Where in the airport is the ticket kiosk please?

3 Is a hotel in the area near Porta Nuova station fairly safe to walk back from dinner at night if there are only 1 or 2 women alone?

Thanks guys... I'm sure you will be able to help me because I've always found Tripadvisor destination experts to be so knowledgeable.

Hi zigzag2,

we are the Tourist Information Board of Turin and we inform you that:

1- from the airport of Torino "Caselle" you can easily reach Torino Porta Nuova Railway Station by bus. It is a blue bus that you can find just outside of the arrival side of the airport. The bus is named Sadem and here you are the time table: http://www.sadem.it/media/6355/000268.pdf

You can buy ticket to the "Ricevitoria Office" in the arrival area or at the box machine. There are some stops on the way but the final destination is PORTA NUOVA.

2- An ordinary urban ticket is valid for 90 minutes and it cost € 1.50. You can opt to buy different passes, valid for 24 hours /48 hours or 72 hours from the first validation at cost price € 5.00 - € 7.50 - € 10.00. It does not exist the 5 day's version and all these passes do not include the Sadem bus to the airport.

Please find here all options you have:

http://www.comune.torino.it/gtt/en/fares/

Tickets are purchasable in any tabac and newspaper shops of Turin!

3- in Porta Nuova area there are many hotels, you can see availability and book the associated hotels and other accommodation in our website:

We are sure you will spend lovely time in Turin!

1) There is a train that goes from Caselle to Turin, but it stops far from city center and Porta Nuova. Almost everybody uses the Sadem bus.

3) The area around Porta Nuova is quite safe, but it's always a railway station. Take the usual precautions for any large city in the world.

I'd say that the 2/3 porticoed blocks at the end of Via Nizza near Porta Nuova are a little seedy and maybe I wouldn't go there in the wee hours.

Via Nizza is on the on the eastern side of the station building, it divides Porta Nuova from the "almost-gentrified-full-of-pubs&restaurants" district of San Salvario.

Thank you very much Turismo Torino and NapOrsoCapo71 for your helpful information. I now have the information I asked for and can get on with organising my trip. I really appreciate all the trouble taken to send the replies.

the airport link to the seda bus gives this information

"One-way fare: Euro 6.50 (+0.50 € aboard). Euro 5.00 with TORINO+PIEMONTE CARD

Journey time: 45/50 minutes."

it does not mention a 1.50 euro ticket. Very strange. We might opt for a taxi - the airport page says 30 to 50 euros - what is it likely to be for a 10.00 am ride to the city? thank you.

It's not strange at all, the €1.50 price given above is for individual tickets on ordinary urban (GTT) buses within the city of Turin itself, not the SADEM - or Terravision - airport bus between the city and the airport (London airports also are not IN London!). The tourist office clearly mentioned that SADEM bus is not included in the city passes; and was answering your second question, not your first!
