Turin/Torino has two main train stations, Torino Porta Nuova (this station) and Torino Porta Susa.
The stunning main building at Porta Nuova has recently been restored and provides a magnificent gateway to the trains.
The train services to and from the Torino/Turin, which only arrive at and depart from Torino Porta Nuova station are:
The train services to and from the city which only arrive at and depart from Torino Porta Susa station are:
Train sevices which call at both Porta Nuova and Porta Susa stations are:
These trains to Torino / Turin that serve both of the main city centre stations will call at Porta Susa before arriving at Porta Nuova.
If you’ll be travelling on such a train and heading for the city centre, it’s likely that you will have a faster overall journey if you leave the train at Porta Susa.
Porta Nuova and Porta Susa are on the same Metro line and both stations are also served by tram routes which penetrate the historic heart of Torino.
Porta Nuova is a terminus station, so all the platforms/binario are linked to the main concourse, which is at street level.
As a result there is step free access between the mainline trains and both the:
(1) metro entrance, (there is an escalator link to the metro in the main departure hall)
(2) the adjacent tram stops.
However, Torino Porta Nuova is in the category of stations that resembles a shopping mall from where trains also happen to depart from/arrive.
When arriving by train, you first step on to the departure concourse.
If you want to access the Metro, or the main exit of the station on to Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, you then have to pass through the shopping area - you will experience a sense of 'will I ever get there'.
Though your efforts will be rewarded as you will eventually arrive at the stunning main entrance hall.
If you want to take a tram to the city centre, follow the signs leading to the Via Paolo Sacchi exits - it's on the left hand side of the station as you walk away from the trains.
Walk in a straight line ahead of the front of the station, across the gardens in the Piazza Lagrange and later across Piazza San Carlo
The Turin Metro does not serve the heart of the city, so the trams are the best public transport option for accessing the main tourist sites from Porta Nuova station.
The tram stop at Porta Nuova is to the left/west of the station on Via Paolo Sacchi (Via Sacchi), look for the exit on to Via Paolo Sacchi - located on the left of the main concourse as you leave the platforms/binario – walk through the archway.
If you miss this exit then leave by the front of the station, through the main entrance on Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and then turn left and walk around the corner on to Via Sacchi.
For the Mole Antonelliana take tram line 4 (as above) two stops to the Arcivesxcovado stop, and connect there for Tram Line 15 and then take this tram to the Rossini stop, which is a 3-5 min walk from the Mole Antonelliana.
Although you may have to wait up to 15 mins for a tram.
Tickets can be purchased from ticket machines that are on the tram, the ticket then needs to be stamped.
