Such cool old buildings and history in this area of Boston! We used a private tour guide to drive us around so we cuold thoroughly enjoy all areas of the city and it was well worth it.

Fun place to wander around, stopping in local caffes, wine shops, and Italian restaurants while the water front is just a short walk away!

We stayed in the North End and absolutely loved it. The Carolyn Lynch Park at Greenway was over the road from us and has the loveliest bench swings and water fountains that the kids can play in in the summer. It’s a small bit of...More

Boston has many interesting suburbs and districts and this is definitely an interesting part of town rich with history and tradition. Great place for an Italian meal too!

Begin your visit at the Greenway and read about immigration into this historic neighborhood. There is a lively vibe here year round but if you can visit during a summer festival, it's a throwback into another time. The local Italian pride lives on. So many...More

Those who like quality have nothing to do here! Restaurants are filthy, unclean, you are served anything no pride or integrity Trashy place for novices who heard about it and younger generation who is hot to show themselves and eat trash

Some excellent Italian restaurants in the area -- very dynamic neighborhood. Can be rather crowded with a lot of traffic so be forewarned in that regard.

Boston as a whole is a great city to experience American history. Touring Paul Revere's house and seeing the North Church is a glimpse into our past.

North End
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
