Nestled in the shadow of the Italian Alps, Turin is one of northern Italy’s highlights and an important centre of both culture and business. The Lingotto district blends the two, offering major tourist attractions and conference centres as well as excellent transport links. It is centred around Lingotto train station, which has a metro connection and regional trains to the rest of Piedmont and Italy.

Cultural Attractions in the Lingotto District
The Lingotto district took its name from the old Fiat car factory, famous for its legendary rooftop race track. The factory dominated the area, and after its closure it was transformed into Lingotta Fiera, a multi-purpose complex with hotels, a shopping mall, art galleries and a conference centre. Car fans should visit the state-of-the-art National Car Museum, a fascinating museum with a stunning collection of vintage and modern vehicles.
Lingotto's Dining & Shopping Scene
Dining out in Italy's Piedmont region is one of life's true pleasures. Turin is a leading city in the Slow Food Movement, and offers some of the region’s best dining opportunities. Head to Eataly, a huge Italian food emporium in the Lingotto Fiere, for a wide range of locally produced treats including Barolo and Barbera wines, and Taleggio and Gorgonzola cheeses.
After a day's sightseeing, head back to your Turin hotel for a drink in the bar, or explore some of Lingotto's local bars and sample the Turinese tradition of aperitivo. Each night local bars offer a complimentary buffet of antipasti with a pre-dinner drink.
