The Refuge Torino (Italian: Rifugio Torino) is a high mountain refuge in the Alps in northwestern Italy. Located on the border with France, it is about 15 km (10 mi) southwest of Mont Dolent, the tripoint with Switzerland. The refuge is in the Mont Blanc massif in the Graian Alps, between the towns of Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley, Italy and Chamonix in the Haute-Savoie, France. It can be accessed from the Italian side by the Monte Bianco cable car from La Palud in Courmayeur, with a change at the Pavilion du Mont Fréty. The refuge lies nearly directly above the 11.6 km (7.2 mi) Mont Blanc Tunnel, which connects Courmayer to Chamonix.
