The trains on this route from Torino to Firenze/Florence commence their journeys at Torino Porta Nuova station.

As all seats are reserved, including yours, you won't have to worry about no spare seats being available if you board at Torino Porta Susa.

The city centre Metro stations are Re:Umberto and Vinzaglio.

Though if you will be travelling with luggage, it can be a better idea to board these trains at Porta Nuova, you'll increase your chances of being able to find an optimum space in which to store your bags.

Online bookings usually open: up to 6 months ahead of the travel date; though the booking period will be typically be shorter when looking up journeys for travel after the second Sunday in December.

If you're heading to historic Venice/Venezia take care to book tickets to Venezia S. Lucia station and not to Venezia Mestre.

These alternative journey options are available both by taking Frecce trains OR by the alternative service of Italo trains.
