This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets to take in the architecture and aromas of delicious food, and visit Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church...more

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!
The North End is a foodie's delight. Not only is it an easy walking area, the streets are charming with tons of history. Save your appetite and choose from a multitude of awesome Italian restaurants. Save room for dessert as Mike's and Modern Bakery are...More
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
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
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
and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
