I love the North End. Truly amazing Italian food, coffee, shopping and culture. Parking is available on the waterfront and in the garages nearby but some walking will be required, but it's an experience everyone should have, and everyone should go to at least one of the Italian festivals (feasts).

All I have for the North End is pure love. Though I am obsessed with eating at all of the delicous restaurants in the North End, there is so much more than just the food. I love the atmosphere when walking down Hanover, but even more so the narrow little streets that wind around the North End... You know, the ones you would never attempt driving down because the cars have parked on both sides of the street and haven't left anyroom to drive. There is just such a fun feeling about it! I love the smells of the food wafting out of the various restaurants. And lastly, I love the people who were born, raised, and now work in the North End. Nothing better than an authentic, North End, Italian Bostonian! You must also check out the churches in this area!

This is the Italian section of Boston with tons of restaurants, cafes and bakeries. A must see when in Boston. Great food, lots to do!

Be prepared to pay a lot for parking in a lot and to walk to your destination - but the restaurants her and the bakery are well worth it (if you have good weather:)

Loved it! Made me feel like I was back in Italy. Amazing food, don't miss getting a Canolli or 2 from "Mike's Pastry". Restaurants can be pretty pricey on Hanover, but go a street or 2 over and they drop slightly but food is great. We spent 2 days walking it, also stopped into the Paul Revere House.
