How to get to Cheese

Use public transport to get to Cheese. It’s better for the environment!


We recommend you to travel by train. The Bra rail station is only a few minutes’ walk from the event venues and, again this year, there’ll be special offers for those who choose to travel with Trenitalia.

All the participants at Cheese who show a validated ticket from Trenitalia during the days of the event, have a regional membership (weekly, monthly, or annual), or are holders of Cartafreccia or Carta Unica of Trenitalia have the right to:

  • a complimentary copy of Il glicomane by Moni Ovadia (available only in Italian), published by Slow Food Editore when you buy with the purchasing of any chosen book with no minimum price, and a 15% discount on new releases at the Taste Library;
  • a useful gadget to pick up at Casa Slow Food, via Mendicità Istruita 14 (limited stocks);
  • a glass of wine worth €3 for every €10 you spend at the Enoteca.

Trenitalia has also arranged special trains for the days of the event. Details will be made available as soon as possible.


Via autostrada A6 Torino-Savona: Marene-Cherasco exit, then follow the signs for Bra;
Via autostrada A21 Torino-Piacenza: Asti Est exit; proceeding via autostrada A33 Asti-Cuneo, direction Alba, then follow the signs for Bra.


Road access in Bra will change during the event, and the area inside the ring road will be closed to traffic between 9:30 am and 11:00 pm.

Thanks to SAC (Bus Services and Tourism), we will have a shuttle service from the city center to the main parking areas. The routes around Bra will change due to road closures. Notices will be posted on buses.

Times, prices and lines will be published in the weeks before the event. One of these services will connect Bra to Pollenzo, the two main event locations.
