  • Great little park in the square and you can people watch. Lovely small cafes nearby and if you want a relaxing stop it is a good place to see. Sts. Peter and Paul Church is well worth a visit...  more »
  • This is a great green space in one of the densest parts of town. Come and sit on a bench and enjoy the life all around you. Great neighborhoods around, and the church.  more »

  • Fiesta Italiana 2019 Only one block long but what a great time. Good music, great food , and excellent wine. Met and got to chat with Tony G for a few. Great down to earth guy. The festival was a lot of fun for being so small. The Italian Festival in Portland Oregon is a full city block downtown in NW but this was just as fun. It was also very cool that they opened up the Italian Athletic Club and had some very cool exhibits inside. There were also some very cool Italian cars and motorcycles on exhibit as well. All in all, a great time in North Beach.
  • beautiful building took a really nice walk around the neighborhood. Would suggest visiting here at night as it is lit up a very good tourist spot lots of old buildings to see in the area and to appreciate the fine architecture. A great photo opportunity place for travelers
  • The perfect little green oasis in the middle of the cutest part of town. They have a nice walking path that circles the park which is very nice for an evening stroll. During warm summer days it’s a great spot to soak up the sun and enjoy a picnic.
  • It’s really a very park to go to. Not very big and spacious but the few benches there help aid the busy or tired travelers. You may see people walking the dog or running around. A nice place to rest. I guess all travelers might come by when in the area.
  • Such a beautiful place to visit. Any church people would love to attend here I think.. it makes you feel like your in Europe or something. But I gotta say that's most of San Francisco to me. You can find beauty anywhere! Just don't forget to tell everyone I sent You! 😁
