Boston’s Little Italy is located in the North End neighborhood. To get to Little Italy by the T, take the Green Line to Haymarket or Government Center stop, or the Blue Line to Aquarium or Government Center stop, or the Orange Line to Haymarket stop. Once you exit from the T, walk towards Boston’s North End which is toward Boston Harbor. You can find and follow the Freedom Trail marked by the red brick ground path through the Boston’s North End.
Look for Hanover Street. Little Italy is known for its authentic italian restaurants, pastry shops, cafes, and historic sites. During the summer weekends there’s usually some festival going on. This is a dynamic and quaint neighborhood nestled along narrow cobblestone lined streets, and a definite must do when in Boston.
My favorite treat in Little Italy are the cannolis. You can try Mike’s or Modern pastry on Hanover Street, or Maria’s pastry on Cross Street. They have so many flavors and the shells are so crisp and freshly made! To walk off your food, make sure to see the historical sites in around Little Italy on the Freedom Trail. You can see the Paul Revere statue on the the Paula Revere Mall or the Prado as its name by Italian immigrants, the Old North Church, the Skinny House on Wall Street, and Copps Hill Burial Ground.
