Strolling down the North End's narrow, winding streets, your
senses are stimulated by the sights, sounds and aromas of European
village life. Hear Italian spoken in front of open-air cafes along
Hanover Street and smell the intoxicating aroma of fresh basil,
garlic and tomato sauce being prepared in the four-score Italian
restaurants running the gamut of price and artistic complexity.

La Cappella is steps from the Freedom
Trail and its many historic sites, including Faneuil Hall,
Revere House, and Old
North Church. Boston's Financial District, the city's central
downtown department stores, and the many fine shops and eateries
at Quincy Market are within a 10-minute walk.
The North End is surrounded on three sides by Boston Harbor, which
provides for gentle breezes in the warmer months and pleasure
boating activity year-round. La Cappella is only one block from
which includes newly-restored playgrounds, an indoor skating rink,
Bocce courts and the world-renowned New
England Aquarium. The Aquarium offers, among other things,
whale watches, sea lion shows, and a new IMAX theater - all within
a few minute's stroll from La Cappella. We are about a 20-minute
walk to Boston's TD Garden,
home to the Boston
and diverse concerts and performances.
The remainder of the city, including the Theater District, Fenway
Hall, Museum of
Fine Arts, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and nearby Cambridge are
all easily accessible by public transportation or taxi service.
