Coming by train
Taking the train, a carefree choice
Coming to Valle d’Aosta by train is a splendid alternative to the traffic on the roads, the fog in the winter months and also pollution, if you like.
Aosta railway station is situated close to the cable car station linking the city to the Pila skiing district.
The main railway stations along the Aosta Valley line (Pont-Saint-Martin, Verrès and Chatillon / Saint-Vincent) are connected to the side valleys by bus services whose times generally coincide with the trains.
Aosta has train services to and from the Turin stations of Porta Nuova and Porta Susa, with frequent trains daily (1 every hour at busiest times of the day). The journey takes about 130 minutes (some trains need a change in Ivrea).
Coming by train from Milan takes about 180 minutes, and you have to change trains at the station of Ivrea and Chivasso.
