Little Italy Tourism
The story of San Diego's Little Italy is written on institutions that still stand to this day—from its oldest grocery store and infamous bootlegging haunt, Prohibition Alley, to Our Lady of the Rosary, an Italian church decked with Renaissance-style frescoes and oil paintings. Little Italy Tourism brings the story to life with a full sensory experience, ranging from tastings of authentic foods such as pasta and mini Sicilian pastries to live-audio commentary via headset that incorporates Italian music. Guides lead guests to hidden neighborhood landmarks, showing them an insider's view of day-to-day life and stopping at local eateries to sample gourmet pizza, pasta, and freshly made gelato topped with biscotti.
