Central Greenwich Village (& a bit of SoHo)
Food and Culture Walking Tour
Join us as we trip back in time on a journey through the central part of Greenwich Village, and then into the old Italian section of SoHo. As we explore this section of the Village you will discover a counter cultural paradise once enjoyed by bohemians, beatniks, artists, and folk singers. Relish in the rich and varied history of this vibrant and intriguing neighborhood as the story of its past and present unfolds before you.
You will enjoy a stroll through Washington Square Park, view architecture from the 19th century, discover the best venues for live music and comedy, and sample a scrumptious variety of food specialties from unique and diverse ethnic eateries and restaurants.
Upon entering SoHo you will experience the quiet calm of a century-old Italian neighborhood, which has survived, and even thrived in modern times. You will be introduced to "mom and pop" specialty food shops and enjoy some of their delicious offerings.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Our Food Tours have been designed to highlight the best and most distinctive foods from each establishment.
