If you need to fly to get to the meeting, we recommend one of the following three airports, one in Turin and the other two in Milan.
Turin Airport (Aeroporto di Torino-Caselle, TRN)
Turin Airport (also known as Turin-Caselle Airport; TRN) is about 16 km from the city centre and boasts good transport services to the town centre, both by bus and train, as well as by taxi, of course. The airport has daily flights linking it to major Italian and European cities. For additional information, visit the airport website.
From the airport, a taxi into town will take around 30 minutes and cost around € 40. We recommend confirming the (approximate) cost with the driver before getting in the taxi.
There is also a shuttle link from the airport to the town centre that leaves every 15 minutes, costs € 6, and takes around 35 minutes to arrive at Porta Nuova railway station. The service is run by a bus company, ‘Sadem’, and more information is available through their website. Upon arrival, to get to the meeting venue, check the the information below on Getting to MBC.
A third option is to take a train from the airport to Torino Dora station (about 27 minutes). From there, bus number 52 takes you to Porta Nuova (about 26 minutes). Upon arrival, to get to the meeting venue, check the the information below on Getting to MBC.
Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP)
Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) is the largest international airport in the Milan metropolitan area and offers daily international and intercontinental flights. For additional information, visit the airport website. Although it is located about 140 km away, there are easy links into Turin.
The bus company ‘Sadem’ runs a shuttle service from Milan Malpensa Airport to Turin (one-way ticket, € 18; more information is available through their website). It takes about 2 hours to arrive at Porta Nuova railway station. Upon arrival, to get to the meeting venue, check the the information below on Getting to MBC.
Milano Linate Airport (LIN)
Milan Linate Airport (LIN) is Milan’s third international airport and the closest to the city centre, only 7 km to the east of the city. It offers daily flights to a wide variety of airports within Europe.
If you fly into Linate, the best way to get to the venue is to catch a bus to Milan Central Station (Stazione Centrale) and, from there, take a train to Turin (Porta Nuova). There are different, regular bus services between Linate Airport and Milan Central Station, and the trip takes about 25 min. For additional information, visit the airport website.
Trains run between Turin and Milan every hour and the journey time is about 1 h and 30 min. For exact timetables, prices and reservations, please see the links provided in the By Train section above. Upon arrival, to get to the meeting venue, check the the information below on Getting to MBC.
Getting to MBC (Via Nizza, 52)
From either Porta Nuova or Porta Susa railway stations, take the underground (direction Lingotto) and get off at Nizza. From there, walk in the same direction along Via Nizza for about one block and you will find the Molecular Biotechnology Center (MBC) on your right, at number 52. In total, the travelling time is 15-20 minutes.
For the underground, you will need a 'Ticket City 100’: it costs € 1.70 and is valid for 100 minutes from the initial validation.
If you prefer to walk all the way, it takes about 25 minutes from Porta Nuova railway station, along Via Nizza, to the MBC.
