Passports and visas

  • No visa is required for travel from UK on a British passport.
  • Remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but also take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night - it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties .
  • In Italy it is obligatory to carry an ID document at all times. You will need your passport for entry into the stadium for ticket identification purposes.
  • Be careful not to lose your passport as you will need to travel to Milan for an Emergency Travel Document.

Getting to the stadium

  • Roads in Turin are organised on a grid system and the city is easy to navigate on foot, by bus/tram and metro. Tickets cost €1,00 obtainable mainly from newsagents and certain bars. They must be franked in the machine when you board any means of transport. The same ticket can be used for 70 minutes on buses and trams, but only once on the Metro. A one day ticket is available lasting 24 hours from the first franking.
  • Local transport info is available on the Torino Turistica website

Travelling to the stadium

  • Take the underground to Bernini station then Shuttle 9B to the stadium. The last return service departure is 45 minutes after the end of the match. Buses 62, 72, 75 and 3 also go to the stadium. Shuttle buses with police escort will leave regularly from the meeting point at the junction between Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and Corso Cairoli (by the Artillery Arch along the road beside Valentino park).

At the match

  • The match is scheduled to kick off at 20:45.
  • Large amounts of coins and belts with big buckles, plus heavy cigarette lighters are not permitted into the stadium. Supporters should consult their club regarding banners/flags.
  • Visiting fans are requested to arrive at the stadium in good time as entry/security procedures may take some time to complete. At the end of the game they will be asked to remain in the stadium for a short time to allow the home supporters’ area to be cleared.
  • Italian government has a zero tolerance policy regarding acts of hooliganism both inside and outside stadiums.

Tips

  • Beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway station (Stazione Ferroviaria), around the town centre and when using public transport. Only carry what you need, leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits.
  • If travelling in a car, remember to always lock the vehicle and never leave valuables inside, even if they are locked in the boot. Hire cars and foreign registered vehicles are more of a target.
