Go on The Official Little Italy Walking Tour with Go City®

  • Visit St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, awarded basilica status by The Vatican in 2010.
  • See locations from TV shows and films such as The Sopranos and The Godfather trilogy.

Walk the ‘mean streets’ that inspired the young Martin Scorsese to become a filmmaker and discover the often troubled history of this cosmopolitan neighborhood.

Expect thrilling tales and anecdotes from your expert guide as you stroll the storied streets of Little Italy, with its authentic Italian restaurants and cafes and friendly Italian-American locals who have lived here for generations.

You’ll visit landmarks including St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral – now a basilica by decree of Pope Benedict – and one of the most interesting attractions in the area. Scenes from two of The Godfather movies were filmed here, and the walled cemetery also provided the setting for a memorable scene in Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets.

Discover more about the area where Scorsese grew up and why it inspired him to make movies, and hear tales of Joseph Petrosino, a pioneer in the fight against organized crime in New York, who was assassinated in Sicily in 1909.
