Numerous Italian restaurants and all delicious! And it's history abound. Paul Revere's house, the North Church, and it's part of the freedom trail! All worth participating.

Never had a bad meal or bad pastry in the North End. We went twice while in Boston for 3 days. Very historic and quintessentially Boston.

If you're in Boston then walking through the North End is a must! The buildings are so old and beautiful. The food is incredible, almost every restaurant in the area is great!

Lots and lots of people and things to do. Especially eat! Italian cuisine galore. If you love to eat you will love the North End. Take an Uber in and out, no need to pay for parking or to even try to find parking.

The N end church is exquisite architecturally and played an important role historically.Paul Revere's house is a must see. Add to that the Rose Fitzgerald connections and a much improved seafront as well as predominantly Italian restaurants and you'll appreciate our enthusiasm!z

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
