First information for your arrival in Turin

Referent persons: Federico Guiati

Arrival at Turin Airport 'Caselle - Sandro Pertini'

Each group will arrive at the Turin Airport, 16 Km from the centre. To go in town you have to take the airport shuttle at the exit of the Arrival Side of the Airport.

The bus company is Sadem. There is a shuttle to the centre about every 30 minutes.

You have to buy tickets by your own directly in the Airport to go to your residence. Buy a one way ticket for the Shuttle and two/three single tickets for urban bus. You can buy tickets inside the airport.

Very important! Keep all the boarding cards, Visa and insurance receipts (if presents).

Find a person of your group that takes charge of collecting all these papers carefully.

Please, be aware of this point, it is fundamental for the final accounting of the IP to collect all these receipts.
