TO ISABEL
" Just curious why you are taking a bus from Milano to Torino instead of a train. There are several trains per hour, and at least one per hour is a direct that takes only 1 hour and costs about €15. Is the bus schedule better than that? "

Yes, it is.
The OP arrives at MXP at noon. The first train that he would be able to catch leaves MXP at 13.07 and arrives at Milano C at 14.05. There he could either try to catch the 14.18 train (almost impossible) with arrival at Turin at 16.10 or wait until 15.50 and reach Turin at 16.50. If he takes the 13,05 bus he will reach Turin at 15.00 (without any train change)

neckervd, I wrote possibly on the Opera idea because I wanted to go over plans with my son this weekend. If he wasn't excited about the opera, I wasn't going to purchase the tickets. All tickets purchased. We're going.

And the weather now looks rainy for many of the days we're there. Y'all were right about the unpredictability of these forecasts. We'll take what we get. And enjoy it!

Might be a alternative to the Scala di Milano:

Reports say that after a decline in Opera interest in younger folk the reverse has happened.
