Turin is ideally situated for access from any European country. The motorway system links Turin with Milan, Venice, Trieste (A4), Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples (A21+A1), and Genoa (A21+A26). It can be reached from Nice and Marseilles via Savona/Ventimiglia (A6+A10), and from Grenoble and Lyons via Susa/Frejus (A32+T4). All the motorways feed into the Turin ring road.

Turin's main train station , Porta Nuova (tel 011.668.9290), is on Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, at the foot of Via Roma - convenient for the city centre and hotels. Some trains also stop at Porta Susa (tel 011.538.513) on Corso Inghilterra, west of the centre. Close by, on the corner of Corso Inghilterra and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, is the main bus station (tel 011.433.2525), the arrival and departure point for most intercity and all international coaches; buses to Saluzzo and C?eo arrive and leave from the top of Corso Marconi, near the junction with Via Nizza. The bus station is linked to Via Nizza (near Porta Nuova) and Porta Susa by bus #60. Turin's airport , Caselle (information tel 011.567.6361 or 011.567.6362), is 15km north of the city, connected by buses every 30 to 45 minutes with the Corso Inghilterra bus station (35-minute journey; tickets cost L6000/3.10).

There are three tourist offices : a main one on the corner of Piazza Castello and Via Garibaldi (daily 9am-7.30pm; tel 011.535.181, ), and smaller ones at the train station (daily 8.30am-7.30pm; tel 011.531.327) and the airport (daily 9am-7.30pm; tel 011.567.8124). They are very well organized with detailed information and suggested itineraries as well as a free hotel reservation service.
