Turin is the capital of the Italian region of Piedmont and, located in the south of Turin city centre, Torino Porta Nuova station is the city's largest, with 20 platforms that serve 350 regional and high-speed trains each day. Inside, there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops for the convenience of travellers. Trains here link Turin to all of Italy’s major cities. For example, travellers can arrive in Turin from Genova in 1 hour 30 minutes, whilst Milan to Turin is only 1 hour, thanks to the high-speed service. The station is also served by good public transport connections, including a metro (with a subway directly under the station), trams, buses and taxis. Thanks to the station’s central location, the heart of Turin can be easily reached after a 10-minute walk. The city is also served by Torino Porta Susa railway station, to the west of the city centre.
Passengers arriving at Torino Porta Nuova train station are in an ideal position to explore the city. Strolling for 10 minutes along the ancient road of Via Roma, surrounded by tall buildings with arched passageways, visitors might make the most of the shops and boutiques that line this street. Along the way, travellers will reach Piazza CLN, which is adorned with two beautiful statues. Suspended over a fountain, these male and female sculptures represent the story of the two main rivers in the city, the Po and the Dora Riparia. Just a couple minutes further along is one of the best places to enjoy some Italian coffee, Piazza San Carlo, which dates back to the 16th century and is known as Turin’s “living room”. This large paved square is surrounded by grand buildings, palaces and churches, and is adorned with statues, like the equestrian statue of Emanuele Filiberto. Via Roma will also take visitors to Turin’s main square, Piazza Castello, which is enclosed by grand arcades, museums, theatres and cafes.
Cuisine in Turin is just as unique as the city itself. Visitors can experience classic Italian gastronomy with a hint of a French twist. Some of the best places to dine are around the areas between Piazza Carignano and Via Monte di Pietà, which are only a 10-minute walk away from the station. Try out a typical dish like agnolotti (pasta squares) with butter and sage or braised in Barolo (red wine), followed by something from the array of sweet treats on offer, like macaroons or delicious Gianduiotto chocolate!
