Visited some of the stops along the Freedom Trail, then stopped at one of the many Italian restaurants for a wonderful dinner, and then to Mike's Bakery for cannoli. A lovely neighborhood!

This area is so charming. The walkable blocks are called Little Italy. It is amazing and I fell in love with the area.

We visited the North End every day of our weeklong stay, whether to eat, follow the freedom trail, visit sites such as the Old North Church and Paul Revere's house, or just to wander...really a cool area!

My favorite place in Boston! I love the buildings, bakeries, and the Italian restaurants are so amazing. Check out Bova's Bakery for the best cannoli and lobster tails! Yum!

the north end has amazing restaurants with delicious homemade Italian food. The Canollis at Mike's pastry are out of this world.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More
