Meet your guide near the Tony DeMarco boxers statue in Boston’s North End. From there you will enjoy a leisurely stroll through Boston’s oldest neighborhood, first settled in 1630. See the sights as you walk in the footsteps of Revolutionary Patriots like Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and George Washington. Also known as Boston’s Little Italy, Italian is still spoken in the quaint, cobblestone streets of the North End. During this fun and educational history walk you’ll see five Freedom Trail sites, plus enjoy three different slices from some of Boston’s very best pizzerias. Pizzerias on tour can rotate from day to day, and may include – a slice named in the “Top 25 Best” in America, a slice from Boston’s oldest Pizzeria with a brick oven from 1883, a slice voted “Boston’s Best” multiple times, or from a restaurant named one of the “Top 10 Best” Italian restaurants in the World! Your tour will conclude near the Tony DeMarco statue with a pizza treat, and a vote for your favorite pizza slice on tour.
