Situated South of Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach is everything Italian. Walking around North Beach one quickly sees all the Italian cafes and restaurants on almost every inch of the block. The primary Historical landmark in North Beach is the twin spires of St. Peter and Paul Church. While it has become one of the most priciest neighborhoods in town, it still remains humble and open to everyone. The beach that gave this town its name has been taken over by landfill.
Be sure to visit Union Square and sit at any of the cool cafe's and coffee shops. And then stay for dinner at a nice authentic family Italian restaurant.
