Walking Tour of Little Italy
Sat, Apr 22 @ 9:30 am- 12:00 pm
Little Italy’s throughout the United States have symbolized the tremendous contributions Italians have made to this country. Unfortunately, many of these historically established business districts are disappearing before our eyes. These Little Italys are either declining due to growth of other adjacent ethnic neighborhoods or are a shadow of their former glory due to the dispersion of Italian families from these districts.
San Diego’s Little Italy is different; a stable ethnic business and residential community, since the 1920′s. Little Italy, today, represents Downtown San Diego’s oldest continuous-neighborhood business district. At one time, more than 6,000 Italian families lived in Little Italy and toiled to build San Diego into the center of the world’s tuna industry.
All walks are 2 1/2 to 3 miles in length on relatively flat terrain. Although each walk is set to last 2 hours, you may want to come early for coffee or linger longer in one of the interesting shops or cafés you’ve just discovered. $15 per person for Saturday walks. Group size limited to 15, so book early for Saturday walks!
