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.

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.
