The Torino Hut is a high mountain hut in the Alps in north western Italy. Located near the border with France, it is about 15 km southwest of Mont Dolent, the tripoint with Switzerland. The hut is in the Mont Blanc massif above the town of Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley, Italy. It can be most easily accessed from the Italian side by the Skyway Monte Bianco cable car from La Palud in Courmayeur, with a change at the Pavilion du Mont Fréty. It can also be reached from Chamonix via the Aiguille du Midi, either by cable car which crosses the massif, or by a long crossing of the Glacier du Gèant. The hut lies nearly directly above the 11.6 km Mont Blanc Tunnel, which passes deep underground, and connects Courmayer to Chamonix.

The hut has capacity for 170 people.
