Boston's "Little Italy" Lunch and Dinner Tours
On this 3 hour guided walking tour we’ll visit historic sites, hidden gems, unique neighborhood shops and local hangouts. Although there will be adequate food samplings as we make our way through the neighborhood, we will consider them appetizers. The tour includes a full lunch or dinner at one of our famous pizzerias (Pizzeria Regina or Umberto’s) where there usually is a hour wait in either place, but don’t worry we’ll do it North End style. We can also buy cold cuts and visit a local bakery for fresh bread and go back to Mama’s house in the North End and make our very own Italian Panini’s. The exciting part of our tour is that we can make our decision as a group (8 to 10 guest) depending on the majority’s mood. That’s what hanging out in Little Italy is like.
