Moving to Torino

by ezzapezza

I am moving to Torino in the coming months and want some advice about nice areas to live - we're looking for a young neighbourhood, close to restaurants/cafes, somewhere central.

Plenty of choice depending on what "nice" and "close" mean to you.

Re: Moving to Torino

Nowadays Torino really is a fine city where to live.
I try to give you some address to google map on.
Well, my best choice is "Piazza Maria Teresa", but it's very expensive.
Currently I'm living in "Piazza Vittorio Veneto". It is central, on the river Po, there is plenty of restaurants and cafès, and full of youth. BUT this means also that is a bit noisy at night.

Another "young neighbourhood, close to restaurants/cafes, somewhere central" area is the one called "quadrilatero romano".
Consider the squared area of 6 x 6 blocks centered on "Via Corte d'Appello" at "Via Bellezia".
This is the most ancient part of the city. Until '80s was a bad neighbourhood, but now this is the most bohemien part of Torino. Full of clubs and restaurants in alleys. And multiethnic. Some streets there are closed to traffic.

But as Ant said, try to be more specific about your interest if you want more specific answer.

What are you coming to do here in Torino?
Ciao.

Travel Tips for Torino

Luci d'artista - 1

by Mikebond

Luci d'artista is a group of modern art works based on light and illumination. It's a temporary exhibition that takes place every year. When I visited Torino with my mother, there were a lot of them in the most crowded corners of the city, i.e. squares and monuments, and I enjoyed taking pictures of them. I don't know the names of the artists and the titles of the works, just look at the pictures!
I don't remember in which square the light works in the first three pictures were installed. The two last photos are not real light art works, but a kind of movies about snails or other little animals. They were located in Piazza San Carlo, the most famous square of the city, which was undergoing major works for the construction of an underground parking. Emanuele Filiberto's equestrian statue was removed and the whole square looked awful.
Local people were very angry with the mayor because many squares and beautiful streets had been (temporarily) destroyed to build parkings and argued that the screen with the snails had been put there to distract people from the works that had spoiled the square.

Torino - The Italian Motortown

by ant1606

To many people Turin is, if ever, known as the Italian Motortown for it's the car design and manufacturing capital.
This city is in most cases not even on the list of visitors to Italy but more visitors can be expected after the XX Winter Olympic Games, which can launch Turin into the tourism big game.
FIAT operations date back to 1899, for the acronym meaning "Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino". The history of this company can be sampled through a visit to the Automobile Museum. FIAT brands include Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati and Ferrari.

If before WW II Italy was a slow-growing economy, post-war years boosted the "Italian miracle" through rapid industrialization that brought the country to a world-class consistency. Those days saw a spread of wealth that put Italians on the move. First was the charming Vespa, then a 4-wheeler was launched at accessible price for many. It was the FIAT "500", a 4-seater, two-cylinder stramlined cage produced in about 3.6 million units from 1957 to 1975. For today's standards it's hardly believable it actually crammed together the early generation of families of four.
By the 70s this vehicle was mostly considered as a toy, for it was cheap to buy and for the ease of city parking due to small dimensions.
A reduced number still survives today and these cars are considered fashionable to some yuppies and freaks. In many cases the original disgraced canvas sunroof is replaced by a solid steel or plastic piece.
True, today there other very expensive, longer, flat, roaring and fast "red" cars on the streets, but the ridiculous and cute mumble of the 497 cc engine of the "500" provides visibility with style to a few lucky owners throughout the world.

Galleria San Federico

by draguza

TURIN is proud of its arcades, an important feature of the urban landscape. There are three historic ones, the Subalpina, San Federico and Umberto I.

Galleria San Federico opens onto the stretch of Via Roma between Piazza Castello and Piazza San Carlo. This is the most recent, built by architect Eugenio Corte between 1932 and 1933. The roof here is in glass and concrete and is reminiscent of the arcade that connects Piazza del Duomo with Piazza della Scala in Milan.

Busses and Trams in Torino

by Jetgirly

Torino does not yet have a complete metro system, so most public transit runs on the congested streets. You must purchase your tickets before you get on the bus, and the easiest place to do this is at a tobaconnist (tabachi). You can buy an individual ticket or a book of twelve. If you are travelling outside the city, you will need a urban (normal) and suburban ticket, which can be purchased together or seperately. When you get on the bus or the tram, find the ticket validating machine (usually near the back) and insert your ticket with the Prima Validation side facing in. Your ticket is good for 70 minutes of travel, however if you are on the bus and realize your 70 minutes is about to expire, you can re-insert the ticket for the Seconda Validation. Bus inspectors "regularly" patrol the busses and check tickets, although I usually only encountered them once every two months. The system for trams is the same. You can use your ticket to transfer busses and trams as many times as you want during the 70 minutes. Return journeys are permitted.

The new Metro opened just in time for the Olympics, and connects Porta Susa train station (near Piazza Statuto bus exchange) with the western suburbs of the city, stretching as far as Collegno. From a tourist's perspective, the Metro is really only useful for visits to Rivoli and Castello di Rivoli. For these trips, take the metro to the second-last stop, ascend to street level, and connect with a #36 bus heading OVER the overpass.

Other ticketing options include a shopping ticket, which is valid for four hours, and a monthly pass that costs € 32.

wonderful venue for lunch

by sylina about Catullo

The best (biggest) bruschetta I have tried in my entire life.. :D fine pasta and pizza... the one with lobster looks really attractive (on the next table) the cakes were also worth a shot... Better make a reservation if you are going on Saturday noon. It could be full... The restaurant locates on the bank of Po, the hill side... nice view from the terrace if the weather is nice... bruschetta, pasta, desert
