Your food tour begins at the famous Boston Harbor - starting with a walk through a scenic waterfront park, with views of the harbor, East Boston, and nearby historic wharfs as we make our way to the heart of the North End. I'll then introduce you to a small, hidden Italian bakery serving up fresh bread daily. Break bread with your fellow travelers and let the carbs give you the energy to continue your adventure! A proper Italian salumeria is next, and you have a chance to enjoy Italian meats and cheeses at their finest and freshest. Then, we'll head to the North End’s busiest corridor, Hanover Street. It’s time for a mid-tour break at a traditional Italian café. Here, you have a chance to enjoy your choice of a classic cappuccino, espresso, or tea. Let the caffeine kick in as we go back in time into North End history. Hear stories about some of the most influential events that have happened in Boston. We will make our way to the Old North Church and step inside the hallowed walls. To this day, North Enders still attend this church, which is famous for its role in the Revolution. After church, we dive deeper into the local side of the North End. A taste of pizza awaits at a neighborhood favorite and the stories are endless. We cap off your North End food experience with samples of the best of the best Italian pastries along the backstreets of this delicious neighborhood!
I have a deep love and appreciation for the history, diversity, and unique culture of Boston. Sharing this love for the one-and-only Beantown with visitors (first-timers and frequent visitors alike) is a passion of mine. Boston's big draw is obviously American history, but there's so much more in this city to explore! I've spent time getting to know restauranteurs, artisans, and other foodies, so that I can show you the coolest spots to get a bite in the North End neighborhood. Of course there's the postcard historical sights, but there's also some awesome snacks, only-in-Boston dishes, and amazing hand-crafted treats - the type of places that locals (like me) love. One things for sure, on my tours, you'll receive personal attention from a real, Boston local and a unique experience that you'll never forget! Join me!
