You’ll enjoy the best of Boston’s drinks and desserts on this Cocktails & Cannoli walking tour.
Italian pastries, unique cocktails, and the sights and history of the North End: the Cocktails & Cannoli tour has everything you’d want from a walking tour in Boston.
Throughout this two-hour tour, you’ll sample four Italian desserts, such as cannoli and gelato, and three cocktails, including an espresso martini. Along the way, your local tour guide will provide you with interesting historical facts about the North End neighborhood, and you’ll also pass by the famous Old North Church and Paul Revere’s house. It’s the perfect mix of classic tourist sightseeing and delicious culinary experiences.
One major perk of the tour is getting to skip the lines for Mike’s Pastry and Modern Pastry: two famous cannoli joints that are known to have long wait times. Breezing past those lines makes this tour all the more sweeter.
The tour lasts around 2 to 2.5 hours, and in total you’ll be walking around 1.5 miles. Be sure to wear comfy shoes and prepare for the weather—whether that means bringing sunscreen or umbrellas.
Tours begin at the Tony DeMarco Boxer Statue at 191 Hanover Street, and they wraps up about a block away. Be sure to visit the Cocktails & Cannoli website to book your tour in advance!
