Train from Florence to Turin?

Jump to last reply

Anyone know the best way for a student to travel from Florence to Turin? Can it be done by train, rather affordably and quickly? It looks like about 200 miles between the two towns, and I'm wondering how long it takes, assuming there's a train. Since my daughter and a couple of friends will be studying in Florence during the Olympics, maybe they can get to Turin and see some of the activities. Although I read that hotels are full, maybe there are still hostels available... Or maybe the students will have to train there, see the sights, then just train home again to Florence... They're young and can take it!
I'll also contact Budget Europe Travel, my favorite resource for purchasing tickets. But I'm sure one of you Fodorites knows right off. Thanks!
