North Beach
Food & Wine Tour

San Francisco’s North Beach is the home of the former Barbary Coast, known during the Gold Rush for its saloons, brothels and shanghaiing dens. Go behind-the-scenes in Little Italy on our North Beach Food and Wine tour to join us as we explore its great restaurant scene and visit the Hidden Prohibition-Era Tunnels where booze was smuggled in. Then, get an exclusive peek at the Oldest Pizza Oven on the West Coast built in 1935, which was copied by Wolfgang Puck at Spago and Alice Waters at Chez Panisse.
