The Best “Little Italy’s” in North America


6. San Francisco, California

Despite being one of the furthest states from the boot shaped country, California still offers a taste of the homeland! The Italian neighborhood in San Francisco is located in the community oriented North Beach, where you can follow the grooves of the area to find great hidden gems. After enjoying the shops and bakeries, indulge further in the Italian lifestyle with a fantastic espresso and patio lunch at a lovely cafe featuring Italian music, newspapers, and staff. Afterwards, experience the unmatched beauty of Italian art before attending Italian language classes in the midst of the preserved Italian heritage at the Museo Italo Americano! For the full experience get in on the special events of the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco and treat yourself to the summer festival or jazz festival, or hold off until October and celebrate the nation’s oldest Italian-American parade!
