Place to stay during the 2006 Turino Olympics?

I am looking for lodging during the 2006 Olympics for 2 or 3 nights. Does anyone know of any good ideas? Should I stay in Milan and take the train to Turin? Does the train run all night to/from Milan?

Why not try the official site of the Turin Olympics:

That's strange; I found it very user-friendly and helpful.

I put in that I wanted something during the games and in the province of Torino. I got a whole list of hotels, clicked on one of them at random, and found that I could get a single room for 126 Euro a night for certain three-day periods during the games.

For train schedules:

www.trenitalia.com

(You can click on an "English" button, as you can at the Torino Games site.)

Ciao, by now I think it will be very hard to find any accomodation left anywhere in Piedmont, anyone who hasn't sold out must be quite dorky! I think that Milan is your best bet, plenty of hotels, about an hour and a half or so by train, lots of them,run up to about 11 pm at night check out trenitalia.com Buon chance!
