In this article we will talk about the Turin airport (Citta di Torino airport), I will tell you how to get from the airport to the city center, where to buy a ticket, and also how to rent a car directly at the airport.
Turin Airport: map and official website
The official website of the Turin Airport (Citta di Torino): http://www.aeroportoditorino.it/en On the site you can find an online scoreboard, information on how to get to the airport, including by car, as well as other useful information.
It’s easy to navigate at the airport, however, perhaps, the airport map will help you .
Access to the airport:
Restaurant and Shop Area
At the airport of Turin, you can issue a tax-free , to do this you must put a stamp on the forms at the customs (you must present your passport, checks, as well as the purchases themselves). Next, in the departure zone you need to go to the Maccorp Forexchange point (opening hours from 6 am to 10 pm seven days a week)
I also recommend a comprehensive article about Turin , where I wrote about housing, public transport, attractions and excursions, as well as about visa and insurance to Italy.
How to get from Turin Airport to the city center
The distance from Turin Airport to the city center is about 16 km. Therefore, it will not be difficult to get by taxi or public transport.
By the way, the airport is in a very picturesque place, immediately after the plane lands, already want to photograph the snow-capped mountains. Here are a couple of photos:
Now let’s move on to the main thing. How to get to the city center from Turin airport . As usual, you can do this by taxi (transfer), bus, train and rented car.
The cost of a taxi to the center of Turin is 30-50 euros. You can take a taxi at the airport, or you can order it in advance, for example, on this site ( my review ), then you will be waited for and taken to the address indicated in advance (the language barrier, if there is, it will not be scary :)).
Get to the city by bus also not be difficult, although, of course, if there are a lot of passengers, it can be a little crowded. The bus also makes stops outside the airport (that is, it is not an express train), therefore, literally after 10 minutes, our bus was completely filled, including the passage was busy. SADEM buses run between the airport and the city – every 30-45 minutes from 5.15 a.m. to 11 p.m. In the city, the bus stops at Porta Susa and Porta Nuova stations. A ticket can be bought from the driver for 7.50 euros (as of April 2017), or at the box office for 6.50 euros. There is a ticket terminal in the airport building, but it did not work. Therefore, tickets must be bought at the box office (Ricevuteria). If you stand in the direction of the exit, then just before the exit you need to turn left and walk 50-100 meters, this same Richevuteria will be there.
The bus stop is right at the exit of the terminal, there is a schedule at the stop, and people are crowding there, so it will not be difficult to find.
The bus was about 30 minutes to Porta Susa. To Port Nuova, I think, another 10-15 minutes.
Also near the exit from the terminal there is a railway station, from where you can get to the city by train . But not to the central station, only to the Torino Dora station. Trains run every half hour, only 19 minutes on the way. A simple ticket costs 3.70 euros and lasts 70 minutes (that is, you can take a bus or tram to your place of residence on it), a day ticket costs 6.80 euros. Next – by bus, tram, or on foot. For example, to the stop XVIII Dicembre (near the hotel Dock Milano , where we lived) there is a bus number 46. But this is not far from Port Susa station, therefore, it was more convenient for us to get by bus.
Car rental in Turin airport
If you still plan to visit some Italian cities (for example, travel from Turin to Genoa ), and in general are used to freedom of movement, I recommend renting a car immediately upon arrival at Turin airport. At the airport, all the popular car suppliers are represented – Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Sixt and many others. The rental price starts at 80 euros per week, which is quite inexpensive for Italy. In order not to go to the website of each company, choose and book through brokers. I use rentalcars.com more often ( review )
Do not forget about the Italian paid motorways, the approximate cost can be calculated on the website http://www.autostrade.it/en/home The cost of gasoline for May 2017 is about 1.60 €.
