Private North End Italian Food Tasting Walking Tour
Experience Italy in one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods, the North End. Our North End Food Tour is a leisurely-paced walking tour that carves a path through the streets of the charming North End. Combine the North End history with Boston’s best Italian foods and explore out-of-the way establishments and off-the-beaten path areas. All your senses will be sharpened by the aromas of the North End pizzerias, restaurants, bakeries, pastry shops, and salumerias. Tastings may include a choice of three pasta dishes at Pagliuca’s Ristorante or a lobster roll, Italian meat and cheeses at Salumeria Italiana, espresso, coffee, Italian soda or lemon slush (summer) at Polcari’s Coffee, pizza from Regina Pizzeria (Boston’s original pizzeria), cannoli from Modern Pastry, and a visit to Bova Bakery where you may sample macaroons, Italian wedding cookies or lemon-snowdrops. Note: All tastings and locations are subject to change.
