Being a history buff, I adored the North End. You really have to walk it to get the best experience. Trolleys and buses aren't allowed because the streets are so narrow, but it's worth the walk and the wonderful Italian restaurants.

Historic and atmospheric - interesting old buildings. Just stroll around and take in the sights, sounds and smells of Italy. I have never seen so many Italian restaurants crammed into such a small area - not even in Italy!!

There are so many historical things to see in the North End and also some of the best Italian food. You really can't go wrong with any of the tons of Italian restaurants that line the streets. Make reservations if you want a specific one!

Toured through the North End to see the Paul Revere house and mall. Holy canoli, Mike's Pastries had lines 10 deep. We kept moving down to the Green Dragon instead. Very historic area the North End. Do visit

We visited on a Saturday and Sunday and loved the North End. It has beautiful narrow streets and reminds us of Europe. IT really feels like another country. The food is so delicious - everywhere you go you smell garlic! We tried 2 different bakeries...More

The North End is best toured at a slow pace so you can read the signs and. Brochures while admiring the historical structures. Lots of quaint shops and restaurants.

There is no parking to be had. It is better if you ride the step on and off trolley. But there are many interesting businesses. Be found Monica's where we bought a delicious sub sandwich to share. Then discovered it is the second rated restaurant...More

Settled by Italian immigrants the North End is now likely to be out of reach for the middle class. The restaurants survive, however. Regina's has the best pizza in Boston!

The North End is full of great restaurants and out of this world pastry shops. Mikes is a colorful display of beautiful pastries. Cafe Vitoria or Modern Pastry for cappuccino.

Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.
