1 Day Package

Price: $99 Per Person

Come meet, mingle and experience warm holiday hospitality while on an “insider’s” tour of San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood at a delightful time of year. On this entertaining and informative tour hosted by a Little Italy historian guide, we’ll be transported back in time to the world of Italian immigrants and experience 100 years of colorful neighborhood history and discover its hidden landmarks and traditions. Upon arrival, we’ll visit Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, the center of spiritual, social and cultural life in San Diego’s Little Italy, which recently unveiled its magnificent $2.5 million restoration. Enjoy time at leisure for lunch on your own at the Little Italy Food Hall – an open-air piazza with locally-sourced food stations featuring mouth-watering Italian fare including wood-fired pizzas, delectable pastas and authentic, creamy gelato. The outdoor patio on Little Italy’s Piazza della Famiglia provides an ideal gathering place and the celebration of food! On a guided walking tour using our listening devices, you’ll discover hidden neighborhood landmarks that chart Little Italy’s story through time – a beautiful church with stunning artwork and stained glass, historic homes from the 19th century, Prohibition alley, an Italian grocery store built in the 1920’s and much more! Enjoy time to shop in a landmark Italian bakery, Little Italy’s oldest Italian grocery, and a unique Catholic gift shop selling inspirational gifts, many imported from Italy. We top off the day with an included gelato while enjoying live Italian music. ­This tour involves moderate walking.
