The fastest way to get from the airport to the downtown is a taxi; services will cost about 30 euros. It is also possible to travel by public transport, i.e. train, but in this case the trip will take much longer, about 40 minutes.
Tourists who are planning to use public transport have to purchase tickets in advance. You can buy them at special kiosks close to all stops of public transport. Heavy fines are charged for traveling without ticket.
There is an extremely mild climate in Turin; the warmest months of the year are July and August. Spring is rainy, so fans of excursions and outdoor recreation are recommended to plan a trip in other time of the year.
Travelers who expect to devote a lot of time to cultural activities and excursions should definitely buy a special tourist card. It is sold in tourist centers and some hotels. The card entitles you to significant discounts at various cultural events.
