HOW TO REACH US BY PUBLIC TRANSPORTS:
The journey from both central train stations to the BnB is about the same and it takes about 12 minutes by tram and 16 minutes on foot. The map on the side can help those who choose to walk.
- BY TRAM / BUS:
By public services, the number of stops is two stops. Please note that the tram and bus tickets must be purchased on the ground at a tobacconist or newsagent (cost 1.5 Euros).
FROM THE STATION PORTA NUOVA:
Cross over Corso Vittorio Emanuele ll and take the tram or bus numbers : 4,11,57 ( or 58 and align at the terminal ) at the bus stop at the beginning of Via XX Settembre. Alight at the second stop at the corner of via Bertola, turn left and continue to the first traffic light. Turn right at the traffic light and cross over via Pietro Micca. You reach Via Mercanti and continue to walk for 50 m until the number 16.
FROM THE STATION PORTA SUSA:
On leaving the station turn left to Piazza XVIII Dicembre (about 300 meters). Reach the bus stop in the center of the square and take a tram or bus number 13 or 51 or 56. Alight at the second stop and walk back to the traffic lights. Cross the street and walk up to Via Mercanti 16.
- BY BUS FROM THE AIRPORT:
SADEM bus service is available, in front of the arrivals exit, which reaches both railway stations. Tickets can be purchased at the point of sale SADEM or the vending machine (6.5 euro) or bus (7.5 euro).
- BY CAR
The B & B is in a restricted traffic area (ZTL), where traffic is forbidden from 7:30 to 10:30 Monday to Friday, but this prohibition can be ignored the day of arrival, provided you request and fill up a form the manager will give you at check-in time. The best way to reach us is to enter Via Monte di Pietà and then stop a few minutes at the corner with Via Mercanti to unload luggage (climb up the slope at your right). Afterwards you will have to reach a parking place. You will receive further information during the check-in and, please, call us for directions, in case you need them, and we will be very happy to provide help.
The cheapest way (and ecological) to park the car, for those who want to come to the center, is to leave your car on the outskirts and take one of the many and frequent public transport that will bring you right to the center. Parking on adjacent streets to the B & B is expensive (but free on Sundays and at night) and difficult to find: thus not so advisable.
A more workable solution, is to use the unguarded public parking place which can be accessed from Piazza Solferino (South side) or from Corso Matteotti corner of Via Re Umberto, which is less than 5 minutes from the B & B. Rates are 1.5 euro per hour on weekdays, between 7.30 and 20. At night and on holidays the rate is EUR 0.80 per hour.
Priced at 10 euro per day (or 1.5 euro per hour), parking is available at the multi story parking at Porta Palazzo, in Corso XI Febbraio 3, which is 11 minutes walk from the B & B.
For those who desire, it is available, by arrangement with the manager, a garage two minutes from the B & B at a price of 25 euros / day (or 3 euro per hour). The facility is closed every night from 1 to 6 AM and on Sundays from 12 to 6 PM.
