How the Torino Card works

The Torino Card is the official city card of the city of Turin and is also called the Torino & Piemonte Card because it is also valid for many sights in the surrounding area. With the Torino Card you can visit almost 60 sights for free.

The participating attractions mainly include museums, castles and historical sites. These include highlights such as the Egyptian Museum, the Royal Museums, the National Film Museum (Mole Antonelliana), the Basilica Superga and Palazzo Madama. In addition, the Torino Card offers discounts on hop-on hop-off buses, city tours, bicycle tours and much more.

You can buy the ticket online and then receive a voucher. You can print this out or save it as a mobile ticket on your smartphone. Your voucher will be scanned at the entrance to the various sights.

From the first use, the Torino Card is valid for 24, 48, 72 or 120 hours.

Who is the Torino Card suitable for?

In our opinion, the City Card is particularly suitable for stays of several days in Torino.

The longer the period of validity of the Torino Card, the cheaper it is per day. And the more you save when using it. With a validity period of 5 days, the City Card already pays for itself from the visit of one more expensive sight per day.

The Torino Card is also good for families, as one child per adult cardholder is admitted free of charge and the card is available at a greatly reduced price for young people between the ages of 12 and 17.

Torino Card + Hop-on/Hop-off

If you also want to use the hop-on/hop-off bus in Turin, we recommend this combination ticket. With it, you can easily reach all the sights and get on and off as often as you like. You can also do a complete round trip first and use the bus for a city tour. And get off later at the sights you want to visit.

Is the Torino Card worth it?

The Torino Card offers very good value for money and is already worthwhile from a visit to two attractions per day. The price per day decreases with increasing validity. Thus, the City Card with a validity of 5 days is already worthwhile from the visit of one more expensive attraction per day.
