Local Transportation From/To Torino
Shuttle from/to Caselle airport (Torino)
There is a shuttle connecting the Caselle airport with Torino (see fares and timetable). On the way from the airport to Torino, the shuttle stops at the two main railway stations (Porta Susa and Porta Nuova, in this order). The conference location is closer to Porta Nuova, although your hotel may in fact be closer to Porta Susa (see the map above).
Shuttle from/to Malpensa airport (Milano)
There is a shuttle connecting the Malpensa airport with Torino (see fares and timetable). On the way from the airport to Torino, the shuttle makes three stops, the most convenient being the second one (Porta Susa). From there, you can reach your hotel/the conference location by tram/bus/metro (see below). It is recommended that you buy the ticket in advance, as the number of seats is limited. The number of rides per day is limited too, so if you plan to take the shuttle from Torino to Malpensa choose a ride that arrives well in advance, as there can be heavy traffic on the highway and the shuttle may be late.
Local Transportation Within Torino
Transportation within Torino is provided by GTT (the Web site contains a journey planner that helps you finding the transport between two points in the city as well as a map). Travelers must buy tickets in advance at GTT booths at the railway stations, at the several newspaper shops ("Edicola") all around the city, or at the automatic machines in the metro stations. Tickets must be validated once on the bus/tram or before entering the metro station.
To get to the conference venue from the Porta Nuova station, you can take bus 68 direction "CASALE CAP." just in front of the station (no need to cross the street) and get down at the fourth stop (stop number 773 - Giolitti).
