Boston’s oldest residential neighborhood, the North End has been inhabited since the 1630s. Here you’ll find a large variety of historical and culturally attractions. There’s the Paul Revere House, the oldest building in downtown Boston built around 1680 and the place from which he left for his famous “midnight ride” in 1775. Some other historic stops in the North End include Old North Church, Copp’s Hill Burial Ground, Union Wharf, Ozias Goodwin House and Mariner’s House, allowing you to explore the city’s rich heritage as well as old world architecture.

Walking around the area, you’ll notice the smell of fresh baked bread and biscotti permeates the air. Because it has a large community of Italian Americans, the North End is also known as Boston’s Little Italy. Visitors are transported to Italy as they walk the neighborhood’s narrow streets, full of attached brick buildings housing small shops, delis, butchers, salumerias, bakers, wine bars and appetizing restaurants. Head to Salumeria Italiana for Italian salami, stinky cheeses, salty olives and beautiful sun dried tomatoes. At Mike’s Pasty, you can sample some of the North End’s best cannoli’s, featuring handmade shells and rich ricotta cream filling, as well as sweet almond nut biscotti, pignoli nut macaroons and ricotta pie. And to dine on some of the freshest seafood in Boston, The Daily Catch offers just-caught seafood dishes as well as satisfying pastas.
