Tianjin is one of the 5 National City centres of the Republic of China and is an urban metropolis. Having played a prominent role in the modern history of China as being one of its major seaports, Tianjin is one of the most popular and urban cities of China today with a bustling economy and financial sector. The unique culture, scenic beauty, leisure attractions and dynamic society have also contributed to the city being a top tourist destination in China.
Located in close proximity to the luxury Somerset Youyi Tianjin, and one of the most popular attractions amongst tourists who stay at the nearby serviced apartments in Tianjin is the iconic Italian Style Street. The Italian Style Street is one of the oldest and most fascinating streets in Tianjin, which is almost exclusively of Italian heritage and culture. The street was declared an Italian Concession in 1902, and although the street no longer retains its concession status, it still boasts a unique Italian culture, making it well worth visiting.
The Italian Style Street stretches for quite a distance and has over 200 structures still retaining their original architecture and design. These buildings and structures are maintained well that it feels like you are actually in Europe as opposed to being in Tianjin! The Italian Style Street is also known for its Italian culture, as the street is home to many fancy Italian restaurants serving typical Italian dishes and delicacies, 24 cafes, chic bars, Italian-style eateries, and art galleries and museums.
Visitors who explore this street will be treated to a uniquely Italian experience in Tianjin, owing to the rich Italian and European architecture, as well as the Italian-inspired culture and cuisine. The street has also been the focus of many artistic expressions in Tianjin, as the street has been portrayed in many Chinese cinema productions and other works of art.
