Found this guide helpful

To assist in making Turin ,affordable to those of us who are not well heeled and like to get value for our bucks, while still seeing the "sights" and experiencing how the locals go about their everyday activities; do they do the same things as us back home ? of course they do, but they do it in an Italian way; and being part of this is what travelling is all about, I reckon ? But remember, you will not accomplish this in a day or two; give Turin what it deserves; a week if you have the time; but certainly no less than 3 days. Remember, that it is far better to see several places properly, than to run around a country spending 5 minutes in each place.

Badbones's City Tips

  • Arrive by train; station is right "downtown" so pickup maps etc as soon as you arrive. Walk down Lagrange towards the action.
