Italian Town in Tianjin ( 天津意式风情街) is the largest one of this kind outside Italy. The current Italian Style Town is based on the former Italian Concession (1901-1947), one of the eight concessions which were built in the early 20th century in Tianjin. If you are planning your Tianjin Tour, a glimpse of the Italian Town is highly recommended.
The so-called Italian Town is a square place formed by the four major streets in Hebei District in Tianjin – Wujing Road (五经路), Boai Road (博爱道)，Shengli Road (胜利路), and Jianguo Road (建国道). The square place is also crisscrossed by a few streets teemed with over 200 century-old Italian architectures. The core of the Italian Town is about one km west of Tianjin Railway Station.
Today, the Italian Town is an interesting window through which you are able to experience the Italian culture and taste the authentic Italian food. When night falls, Italian Town becomes an ideal hangout to kill your leisure time – drinking like fish, seeing the Italian performances and window shopping for Italian clothes, arts and crafts.L
