Transportation from Turin to Colle Don Bosco

For transportation of participants from Turin to Colle Don Bosco on the morning of August 15th, the organizational staff offers some private buses that will ensure the transportation for round-trip from/to Salesian hosting houses in Turin. The groups who have not rent a private means of transportation (BUS, car, van) must communicate in on the online registration form.

Parking of private means of transportation (cars, buses and vans) and accommodation for drivers

For the private means of transportation, free parking areas will be offered next to the Salesian houses where the groups are hosted. For transportation in the city, we suggest not to use private means of transportation and to take advantage of the ticket for the public ones provided in the SYM-Pack. Each group should arrange autonomously for the accommodation of drivers during their stay.

Transportation from the airport to Salesian hosting houses in Turin

Participants arriving by plane in Turin (Caselle airport or other airports nearby) can reach the Salesian hosting houses by public means of transportation (train, bus), buying the tickets at the ticket offices of the airport.
