Pizza & Little Italy Tour
Have a hefty appetite an appreciation for years gone by? The Pizza & Little Italy Tour is right up your alley. You’ll enjoy a trip to five major sites along Boston’s renowned Freedom Trail, with three helpings of ‘za to keep you full along the way. You’ll even get to sample one offering that’s made in a brick oven that dates back to 1883! Tours run each day of the week once May arrives, beginning at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Pizza & Historic Tavern Tour
If you’ve seen it all in the North End, the Pizza & Historic Tavern Tour features something different, with a ferry ride, views of nautical landmarks and a stroll through Blackstone Block, one of the oldest neighborhoods around. In between slices, you’ll also stop by a tavern once visited by the likes of Paul Revere, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin! Tours run Wednesday through Saturday, starting at 5:30 p.m.

If you’re traveling with a large group or have a special interest, Boston Pizza Tours has you covered, as well.
The Pizza & Patriots Tour is the ultimate field trip; your group will explore little-known historic sites, and end the day with a scrumptious pizza picnic. And the Pizza Tour Marathon is designed for the elite few who can pack away six slices and still keep room for dessert.
With free admission for kids aged 5 and below (pizza not included), young ones without fully grown appetites are welcome to partake in the fun, too.
So come hungry, and bring your walking shoes, because there will be a quite a few cobblestones!
If your feet get tired during the tour, it can’t hurt to have a place to put them up when the day’s done. And for folks on the lookout for food tour options that are about more than pizza, there are plenty of those in Boston, too.
