How to get to Casa Firmino
Lat/Long: (45.078491, 7.76506)
By car. If you drive, there are three ways to reach Superga: the Strada Comunale di Superga from Torino (borgata Sassi), the Panoramica dei Colli from Pino Torinese e the road from Chieri which climbs through the village of Baldissero.
Strada Comunale di Superga winds up from Borgata Sassi to the top of Superga hill and is about 4.5 km long. It turns off Corso Casale next to the lower terminal station of Superga rack train.
When you get to the small Superga village at the top, where the roads from Pino and Baldissero also converge, you will notice a newsagency /tobacconist shop and two restaurants. Do NOT continue on the same road towards Baldissero. Instead turn Left up following the signposts to the Basilica (It’s almost a U turn).
About 150 m. after the turn, take the small road on your Left called “Strada alla Funicolare”.
Continue on this level road for about 250 m. up to a signpost reading ‘interni 23’, which is on your left next to a big bamboo hedge. Follow this private road which descends on your Left. After a sharp bend you come to a short white metal railing on your Left; at the end of that, turn Right into the courtyard of Casa Firmino. There you are.
By Public Transport
From the city centre: tram 15, bus 61 and bus 68 all go to Borgata Sassi.
From Sassi to Superga: bus 79 or the historic rack train.
On Foot (why not?)
If you wish to walk to the house, we advise you to follow the paths detailed on the Collina Torinese website:
