10:00 PM Little Italy Culinary Tour Experience the story of Little Italy, San Diego—a neighborhood with an Italian presence since 1871. Six thousand families of Genovese and Sicilian origin once called this place "home." The salty sea air, the ready-made port, the date palms, bougainvillea, geraniums, olive trees and cactus plants reminded many Italians of their sunny fishing villages back home. They painted their tiny wooden bungalow homes with the colors favored by their ancestors. They built their own boats, fished with hand-sewn nets, cultivated fruit and vegetable gardens, made fresh pasta by hand and baked golden loaves of sesame-topped Italian bread in igloo-shaped backyard ovens. For a time, paradise was theirs.

In this tour we recreate the world that was, and showcase the hip and stylish neighborhood Little Italy has become—each Saturday. RSVP online at our website. Join us for an amazing behind-the-scenes sightseeing/tasting experience!

Sicilian pastry, gourmet pizza and pasta, plus a refreshing beverage are included!

Admission/Cost: $29.95 Online Reservations Required
