Revered for its intimate atmosphere, stellar dining options, and landmark status, North End’s slanting apartment buildings, humble churches, and narrow alleyways conjure visions of old Europe. Rusted iron fire escapes and striped green awnings hang above North End’s various Italian pastry shops, cafes, and fine-dining restaurants. Stay in the neighborhood and you’ll be playing bocce ball with a man named Frankie faster than you can finish your cannoli—a treasured North End treat.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
