MAU around Via Nicola Fabrizi
The Cit Turin hood
In the local dialect 'cit' means little so this neighborhood that epitomizes Turin, a Turin in miniature! Lots of Art Nouveau buildings in town are concentrated between Corso Francia and Via Cibrario. So if you are making of Torino your new home, this area is super posh 😎: within a walking distance from Via Garibaldi, great restaurants, coffee shops, good schools and above all the subway!!

Piazza Benefica market
Every neighborhood of Turin has a daily market because traditionally, Italians go groceries on a daily basis and cook every day. Italians in particular love freshly made foods and seasonal ingredients, however the Piazza Benefica market also has super chic fashion stalls from the city's boutiques. Pick a day and have a look! This market closes at 2pm so plan to be there at the latest around 12:30. As you go around, you'll see that on Via Principe D'Acaja and all the streets there on going to Porta Susa and even on Corso Inghilterra have many trattorias, restaurants, coffee shops and gelato places. Anything in this area is very good! Just pick one! Very safe area in the evening too 😉

Lingotto gave Turin the nickname of the Italian MoTown as it was the very first automated FIAT factory,. As we are writing it is also the terminal of the subway, so you know where you'll get. As the car industry moved out of Turin, Lingotto got renovated into a shopping mall with hotel, restaurants and offices. It also hosts Pinacoteca Agnelli another interesting art museum with the Agnelli (read: FIAT founder) family's private art collection. The collection is actually hosted in a building designed by Renzo Piano and it includes works by Canaletto, Tiepolo, Renoir, Manet, Picasso, Modigliani, Matisse e Balla.
