The North End is Boston's oldest residential neighborhood and could best be described as the "Little Italy" of Boston. The streets are narrow and compact, and there is history - Old North Church, Paul Revere's house, burial grounds - seemingly around every corner.
The neighborhood is packed with Italian restaurants, and the locals carefully maintain their deeply-rooted ties to Italian culture.
With dozens of eateries serving homemade pasta, fresh-baked breads, cannoli and cappuccino, the North End is infused with the flavor of its rich Italian history. Colonial-era sites are located throughout the neighborhood including Paul Revere's house, the Old North Church and Copp's Hill Burying Ground. The North End comes alive in the summertime with feasts, festivals and processions.
