Okay, after having gone to Italy we decided we had to go back to the North End.
It's really an enjoyable place to walk around and get some treats. I would pick a
restaurant with great care if you are looking to experience something close to
Italy. Of course it is fun to get cannolis at Mike's pastry, but I am not convinced
it is worth the long line we saw way out the door on a Saturday when their was
a Bruins game. Also, make a reservation for dinner if the Bruins are in town.
The whole area was mobbed and restaurants were packed. Also tried gelato -
which rated okay, but not up to the best in Florence.
Never been on the Freedom trail or in the North Church so can not comment
on them. We did find a great Italian shop with handmade pasta and other goodies.
