A lot has changed in Little Italy in the past decade and we want you to know all about it—where to eat, who to talk to, what ingredients to pick up, and what vendors you should visit. On the way, your guide will fill you in on the area's multilayered history. Guests will get to sample foods at four different locations, with two offering wine or beer, and one to end the tour the right way—with dessert.
  • Sample foods at four Little Italy locations
  • Learn the history of this beloved San Diego neighborhood
  • Be introduced to shops and vendors that might not be on your radar
  • Talk to the shop owners and restauranteurs keeping the area relevant and authentic
