Climate and dressing code
Located in the north-west of Italy, the climate in Turin is definitely more continental than Mediterranean in nature. Autumn in November tends to be cold, although not harsh, with occasional rains: make sure you bring an overcoat. The dressing code on Campus tends to be informal and the green surroundings lend themselves to nice walks.
How to get here
Turin International Airport is a 45-minute drive from the Centre. The simplest thing is to contact the Centre’s Reception in advance, so that it can organize car transport for you. It is open 24 hours a day, tel. +39 011 6936279; e-mail: email@example.com. You will then be met at the airport by a driver carrying a notice with your name on it.
Alternatively, you can get a taxi from outside the airport. Ask the driver to take you to the “Centro Bit”. The fare varies.
There are two major train stations in Turin: "Porta Nuova", which is closest to our Centre, and "Porta Susa". On a weekday, the taxi fare should be no more than 15 euros from Porta Nuova and 20 euros from Porta Susa to our Centre.
Our Centre is in the south-east of Turin.
If you are arriving from the north, follow the "Tangenziale Sud" ring road towards Savona/Piacenza and exit at Moncalieri. If you are arriving from the south, on the motorway, follow signs to Moncalieri, and exit there. Then follow signs to "Torino Centro" (Turin city centre) and "Corso Unita d'Italia". After about two kilometres, a big overhead sign saying "Torino" welcomes you to Turin. Stay on that road for another 500 metres: our Centre will be on your right. It is fairly easy to download a route map from the Internet.
By public transport
The simplest way to reach the Campus if you are in the city centre or in the train station (Porta Nuova or Porta Susa), is to get the metro (direction “Lingotto”) and to get off at “Carducci-Molinette” stop. Once out of the metro station, you will catch bus n. 45 or 45/ at “Carducci Nord” stop (direction Carducci cap.) and you will get off at “Palavela” stop, just in front of the Campus entrance.
