The Turin tramway network (Italian: Rete tranviaria di Torino) is an important part, along with the Turin Metro, of the public transport network of the city and comune of Turin, in the Piedmont region, northwest Italy.
The Turin tramway network has 10 lines (for a total of 12 routes):
- 3 Corso Tortona - Piazzale Vallette
- 4 Strada del Drosso - Via delle Querce (18 km)
- 6 Piazza Hermada - Piazza Statuto
- 7 storica Piazza Castello (circular) (6,9 km) (operated solely by heritage trams)

Of the urban lines, lines 3 and 9 were created as a light rail tram system in the 1980s. Today, line 3 is called a "fully protected" route, while line 9 is considered an ordinary tramway.
Line 4 has characteristics similar to line 3, although another type of tram vehicle is used. In any case, this line also includes long stretches of reserved sections to permit higher speeds.
On line 3, light rail vehicles of the series 7000 were used.
