Torino's main train station is the third-busiest in Italy and maintains its original 1864 design.
Of Turin’s four train stations, Torino Porta Nuova is the largest. Porta Nuova opened in 1864, only a few years after Italian unification, and though the building has been renovated more recently it maintains its original overall design. The facade features a large arched section in the middle, and that arch continues as an impressive ceiling over some of the train platforms in the station.
Torino Porta Nuova is the third-busiest train station in Italy, after Roma Termini and Milano Centrale, with roughly 70 million people traveling through the station every year. There are 20 platforms, and because this is a “terminal” station, trains come in and go out again from the same direction—they don’t pass through. Trains from Porta Nuova serve cities all over Italy (Trenitalia’s high-speed Alta Velocità trains serve this station), and the Turin-Modane railway connects the Piedmont capital with France via the Fréjus (or Mont Cenis) Rail Tunnel.
The train station is built on three levels, parts of all of which are for passenger use. The main level (the platform level) is where the ticketing counters are, along with most of the shops, restaurants, and services.
The Freccia Club lounge (for travelers with a Gold or Platinum CARTAFRECCIA card or an Executive or AV Salottino ticket) is near the terminus of tracks 15-16, the Sala Blu (Trenitalia's office of assistance for disabled travelers) is next to Track 1, the KiPoint luggage storage office is also next to Track 1. Restrooms are located near the terminus of Track 20.
The upper level is primarily office space, with some overflow from the retail shops on the main floor. The Porta Nuova stop of the Turin Metro comes in at the station’s underground level.
In addition to the handy Metro station underneath the train station, there are several bus and tram lines that serve Porta Nuova, stopping just in front of the station’s main entrance on the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. Other trams and buses stop near the Via Sacchi entrance, while the Via Nizza entrance is served by buses only. The city center is also not far from the station, so depending on whether you’re carrying luggage it can be about a 10-minute walk.
