We'll begin at the "Italian Cathedral" and discover a few secrets in Washington Square Park before heading off to a local coffee roaster, a visit two of the oldest bakeries in the city, and learning a bit about the neighborhood's colorful history. Along the way we'll sample tastes of locally-made Italian treats, breads and salamis. You'll probably still want lunch after the tour but you'll be armed with a local's knowledge of the best places to eat and explore in this gem of a neighborhood.
Your tour will be led by one of our guides -- Linda, Barbara, Chris and Gloria -- all of us are North Beach regulars with over 40 years combined experience. We'll introduce you to our favorite food sellers, share secrets of this neighborhood's quirky past, and offer tastes of the specialty foods that make this neighborhood famous.
