Driving around Turin Airport
Turin Airport is also known as Turin-Caselle Airport, and it services both the city of Turin and the Piedmont region. This is an area full of natural beauty, and incredible food – just right for a road trip. There are a few small neighbourhoods surrounding the airport, but this isn’t a built up area and there are a few major roads to join if you fancy moving to a further away destination.
Popular destinations to drive to from Turin Airport
This is the capital of the region, and arguably Italy’s capital for chocolate. It’s also a huge destination for football fans, as the Juventus Stadium is one of the most significant for Italy’s football scene.
To get to Turin, turn left onto Strada Aeropuerto then merge onto SP2. Continue onto the RA2, following the signs for ‘Centro’. It’s much easier to park on the outskirts of Turin, but then it’s harder to reach the centre – check where your hotel is first. If you stick to the main Corso’s, you can avoid tricksy little roads and one-way avenues.
Festival delle Sagre di Asti is one of the hottest events in this region, but you can visit the beautiful buildings and secret gardens at anytime. It’s southeast of Turin.
To get to Asti, you’ll be following the same directions as you would for Turin. Instead of carrying on on the RA2, take exit 1 to Susa. Keep left at the fork, and merge onto the A55. Keep on this road, merging onto the E70 towards Asti – it only takes an hour to reach the centre from the airport.
Allessandria is another popular destination just outside of Asti. To reach it, follow the E70 out of Asti.
The Old Town of Alba and the wineries surrounding it make it a quaint and calm stop off for an Italian road trip. There are also amazing underground tours underneath the city.
Take exit 1 on the RA2 to Susa, and follow the E70 until you see the A6 exit to Savona. Follow the A6 until you see the exit for Carmagnola, then turn left, and left again to reach the SP129. Continue straight on this road, then turn right onto the SP135. Move down, straight through Ceresole Alba and turn left onto the SP10. Continue until you reach the T junction and then turn right onto the SP29, then drive straight down following the signs for Alba. At the last junction, turn right onto the SR29 to get into central Alba. Alba isn’t big, so don’t expect multi-storey car parks – park on the street or within your hotel premises.
