Little Italy, San Diego

4.1
Restaurants, retail shops, home design stores, and art galleries line this street in Little Italy. The street was originally an Italian tuna-fishing neighborhood up until the late 1960's and continues to be home to many Italian families. Maintained by the Little Italy Neighborhood Association, this area is a destination for fine Italian wines and gourmet Italian meals. Although the neighborhood is predominantly Italian, a couple of different restaurants offer more variety: A British pub and a craft beer, wine, and sake bar offer late-night dining and drinking. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a San Diego trip simple and quick.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
