Boston’s Little Italy is also one of the nation’s oldest inhabited neighborhoods. Deadly molasses floods, anti-British riots, and mafia intrigue have coursed through the streets of this section of Boston. From Paul Revere’s House and the Old North Church to Mike’s Pastries, the history of this neighborhood is rich.
From Puritans to cannoli shops, this tour intersperses plenty of Revolution, salty maritime activity, and immigrant life to paint the history of Boston amidst the city's best eateries. Stop for pizza or oysters afterwards, and you won’t have far to go!
