Via Borsieri, and the surrounding neighborhoods. I am pretty sure that this street truly is off the beaten path. If you take the metro line 3 (yellow) to its last stop Zara and head toward the big circle interchange you are heading into the part of town that I knew the best. Viale Zara, Via Trau, Via Lambertenghi, Via Borsieri and Via Garigliano make up a great place to see an Italian neighborhood. Within these few blocks there are great bakeries, pasta shops, gelatarias, pizzerias, cafes, restaurants, fruit and vegetable shops. There aren’t any sights to see up in this part of town, but it is a great place to go to catch part of the local culture. In addition there is local market the first weekend of every month. People are selling everything from fabrics to food to flowers to little trinkets, and it is always crowded. During the day the whole area is great, but at night the south end which is located near the Garibaldi train station can be a bit sketchy, although I frequently walked through there at night without any problems.
