Visit San Francisco’s North Beach district and explore this food lover's paradise! There’s lots to see in this historic area, but be sure to come hungry because on this tour the focus is on the food. Savor pasta, pizza, antipasti, and cannoli as well.
What to Expect
As you enter the popular North Beach neighborhood it won’t be long before you notice the scent of baking bread and the aroma of strong coffee.
Originally called the Latin Quarter, North Beach was at one time home to people from all over the globe. Italians arrived in North Beach, mainly from the northern region of Liguria. In the 1900s Sicilian family blocks began to arrive in San Francisco in great numbers, attracted by the relatively similar climate and good fishing conditions.
Stops and food choices on this 2.5-hour tour change, but chances are you'll be having antipasti, appetizers, pizza, pasta, breads, and you’re likely to finish off with cannoli from one of the oldest and best Italian bakeries anywhere!
Just to make sure that all the bases are covered, you’ll probably have tiramisu from an even older Italian eatery, that first opened its doors in 1880. Home made fudge and hand-made truffles are usually both included so you can decide which is your favorite!
Some of the best coffee in the world is roasted in North Beach and you’ll be able to observe the tried and true process.
You’ll start with pasta, which is how meals begin in Italy, and along the way you’ll make at least 5 stops to try specialties at other places. The focus will be Italian but foods from other cuisines may be included to mix things up.
