Old, Fascinating Part of Town

The tall buildings, narrow streets, and generally quieter atmosphere was very delightful. It was fun to walk down the streets and snap some pictures.

This is the best ballpark to see a Red Sox game. Nearby parking lots are not expensive. You can see everything no where your seat is.

Great walking area! Stop in and out of the shops and must dine there. Lunch or dinner. We walked and in doing so, checked out the menus in the windows. Selected a place and were so happy with our selection! We dined at Lucca. The service was excellent and the food delicious!

You have it all in the North End...history, shopping, dining, a real neighborhood. It's still the Italian Mecca. Visit the Old North Church, Paul Revere's House, dine at Prezza for upscale dining where the crispy pork chop with potatoes and vinegar peppers will set you right up for dessert at the Caffe Vittoria or Mike's Pastry. There are scores of... More

I'm a Senior Citizen and grew up in Boston. To love Italian food is to love the North end. There is no such thing as a bad meal. The challenge is how do you pick the best...but there is no winner as they are all great. Prices are reasonable and you cannot go wrong here. It is a great place... More

No visit to Boston is complete without a visit to the North End of Boston. Known for amazing italian food it is a great spot after a day of sightseeing. Walking distance from Faniel Hall so a great end to sightseeing.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
