Gennaros had the best clams and linguini with Swiss Chard cooked to perfection. The drinks in their little attached bar were great with a friendly and upbeat bartender. The ambiance was a night to remember at a table overlooking Cobbkestoned Nirth Sauare next to Paul Reveres historic house. In a word...breatthaking

While Old North Church is a splendid example of puritan architecture, the aromas coming from the many Italian restaurants are the real draw.

The north end is simply a neighborhood that has a plethora of Italian bakeries, cafes and restaurants with very few other sights to see. I would suggest selecting anything of interest (such as the Paul Revere House) along with specific restaurants that you might like and skip walking the streets unless you just have a great deal of extra time...

so much to see in this beautiful area of Boston! LOTS of people walking around, but just the architecture was worth the trip! Nice pubs to pop in and out of, too! Great area to just explore!

Wonderful experience and a must for all! My husband and I loved walking the streets of Boston MA! The architecture was wonderful, food was fantastic, and atmosphere made walking feeling as though you could walk 10 miles!
