How to take a rail journey from Turin / Torino to Parma



From Torino Porta Susa to Parma

Travel Information

Because the Frecce train from Torino to the Adriatic Coast now takes the high speed line between Milano and Bologna, the only direct train from Torino to Parma is an InterCity Notte overnight train, which has limited seated accommodation.

Within the plethora of the indirect journey options for taking a train from Torino to Parma, what isn't initially obvious is that this combination of trains...
(1) A Frecciarossa or Frecciarossa 1000 train from Torino to
(2) A Frecce train from Milano Centrale to Parma
... offers the optimum journey.

It involves making only one, relatively easily timed connection in Milano Centrale station and enables the end-to-end journey to be made on comfortable Frecce trains.

Up to 7 x connections per day ( if you want to make the end-to-end journey by Frecce trains).


Book early and save: Yes

Online bookings open: 4 months ahead of the travel date - usually
