The North End was within walking distance to our hotel and offered many historical attractions. There were a good number of restaurants to choose from, especially if you wanted Italian fare.

A piece of Boston history and you'd be missing out if you didn't come by, if not for dinner, at least go to Bell in the Hand for an ale and to see the Oyster House. It's very easy to get there and there is a lot to see in the surrounding area. Don't skip it!

Oh my goodness if you want some pasta, pizza or pastries this is the place for you. There are more eateries than you could imagine. They have quaint little Italian markets and cheese shops. The brick buildings are charming.

If you are planning on doing the Freedom Trail you will walk right through it! It is literally a "Little Italy"! There are many food options and amazing buildings to see! Make sure you also visit Mike's Pastry's! I got a cannoli and it was beyond amazing!

Nice walk through town. Don't get suckered into getting pastries from Mike's or Modern as there are many places to get good treats without having to deal with the crowds or pay the tourist premium

If you want Italian food, this is the place. The challenge is making a decision as to which one to go to. There are SOOOO many of them. All look authentic too. The streets have a lot of character too. Cobblestones and Paul Revere's house are all here. Can spend hours just strolling the streets and people watch. They have... More

The North End is a must see and a must place to eat. The cobbled streets and atmosphere really reminded me of Italy. The food in the area is excellent - ask a local for a restaurant recommendation. That's what we did and we were pleasantly pleased.

Endless options of food and Italian pastries. Also a great place to walk around. Visit during the summer to enjoy one of the great feast.
