Washington Square reviews
Great little park in the square and you can people watch. Lovely small cafes nearby and if you want a relaxing stop it is a good place to see. Sts. Peter and Paul Church is well worth a visit... more »
This is a great green space in one of the densest parts of town. Come and sit on a bench and enjoy the life all around you. Great neighborhoods around, and the church. more »
Fiesta Italiana 2019 Only one block long but what a great time. Good music, great food , and excellent wine. Met and got to chat with Tony G for a few. Great down to earth guy. The festival was a lot of fun for being so small. The Italian Festival in Portland Oregon is a full city block downtown in NW but this was just as fun. It was also very cool that they opened up the Italian Athletic Club and had some very cool exhibits inside. There were also some very cool Italian cars and motorcycles on exhibit as well. All in all, a great time in North Beach.
beautiful building took a really nice walk around the neighborhood. Would suggest visiting here at night as it is lit up a very good tourist spot lots of old buildings to see in the area and to appreciate the fine architecture. A great photo opportunity place for travelers
