This old neighborhood is the site of the Old North Church and the Paul Revere House. Located along the Boston waterfront, the North End was the first stop for several waves of immigrants. Italians made it their home in the 1870s. Italian restaurants and pastry shops are crammed into narrow streets, where the smell of garlic and sounds of happy diners fill the air. Hanover and Salem are the two main streets and are often packed with tourists and locals who flock there to chill, relax, and most importantly, shop.

In Boston's Little Italy district, DePasquale Homemade Pasta might not seem like anything special. Taken by itself, however, this small shop is a treasure of old-world methods and tastes. Pasta maker and quintessential nonna Zoya Kogan toils away behind a deli case crammed with plastic tubs containing any of the fifty pastas made fresh every morning. In addition to the fifty different pasta shapes (from which resident pasta assistants will help you choose) are eight varieties of artisan ravioli along with daily "inspirations". The fresh pasta alone is worth a trip, but the heritage of seasoned pasta makers behind the offerings at DePasquale's make this an absolute must-stop.

Named for then Mayor Josiah Quincy who had a big hand in its construction, Quincy Market is a 27,000 square foot (2500 square meter) building constructed between 1824 and 1826. Though Quincy Market has always been associated with food, its scope has now expanded beyond simply grocery to include restaurants and many fast-food outlets. It is one of downtown's busiest lunchtime spots.
There are more than 100 places to eat, shop and drink at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, also known as Quincy Market. French merchant Peter Faneuil gave the hall that precedes the marketplace to his adopted home of Boston in 1742. It has been called the Cradle of Liberty because of the number of revolutionaries and abolitionists who delivered important speeches here. The hall is now a tourist center and place to shop, but public meeting facilities are still available.
