The signal from the steeple of Boston's oldest church triggered the War for Independence that led to the birth of America. On that fateful night in 1775, the two lanterns in the steeple told Paul Revere that the British were approaching by boat, not on foot.

Take a walk through boston's North End and see the Italian culture of this wonderful neighborhood. Old north Church is a must see. The gift shop next door is spectacular. Filled with gifts and items you'll absolutely need. Walk to Al Dente for lunch. It's just a couple blocks away.

There is a donation required to enter but it is not mandatory. If you go on a tour your will learn about the history of the church.

The church itself is very nice and interesting, but the best things about the church are the places that you only see with the guided tour- the artifacts, the bell tower and the crypt. You also get the expertise of the folks who work here. When you donate, you also get a 10% discount at the shop next door and... More

Beautiful building, with so much historical significance. Seeing it sent chills up my spine. Try going on a weekday to avoid weekend crowds.

Make a point to see this place. Its historic significance cannot be overstated! Ask the docent some questions and take your time walking through it and the cemetery, too. Soak in the history!

Nice place for a visit, we were pressed for time but enjoyed what we saw. The gift shop was nice too. We did not get a chance to hear the guide give a tour but we were impressed with the church.

The best it is to make your visit to the Old North Church a part of a city self-guided walking tour but it can also be reached via hop on/ hop off buses. It is an integral part of the city's history and one of four church sites among the 16 stops on the Freedom Trail. The famous "One if... More

A very beautiful piece of our great nation's history! But don't just see the outside of the building, go inside and see how people worshipped 300 years ago!

What a beautiful preserved church. Makes you remember your history lessons in elementary school about Paul Revere's midnight ride. Very interesting to sit in the boxes where past historical figures sat. There is a suggested donation of $3.00 at the entrance. The church is a nice quick stop not to miss!

There's not that much to see here, but how could you possibly visit Boston and not visit the Old North Church? There's no admission fee and it's adjacent to the statue of Paul Revere and the North End of Boston.
