Torino / Turin to Lyon by train

An Alpine landside has swept away a large section of the railway used by the trains which travel from Torino / Turin to Lyon and the necessary reconstruction won't be completed until summer 2024 .

Replacement bus services have not been made available, so Torino/Turin to Lyon journeys are not viable by train until the currently closed route has reopened!
The alternative route involves connecting in Milano and Geneve and has a journey time of more than 8 hours!

Take the fabulous rail journey from north-west Italy to central France, which involves a passage through the Alps.

Trenitalia has now introduced its ultra smart Frecciarossa 1000 trains to this route and they have in effect replaced the TGV trains when travelling city centre to city centre.
