Crosstown Pizza Walking Tour (Little Italy and Greenwich Village)
Visit Manhattan’s famous Little Italy, which the majority of Italian immigrants called home in the early 1900s. See the streets that once overflowed with peddlers and fruit carts and where a peasants’ meal called ‘pizza’ made its debut in America. Visit America’s oldest pizzeria, and admire the sights of these two lovely neighborhoods as you walk.
Greenwich Village Pizza Walking Tour (Greenwich Village and SoHo)
Discover the evolution of pizza from its humble origins in Southern Italy to its cheesy transformation in America’s industrial cities. This Manhattan district was once a thriving Little Italy and is currently in the middle of a resurgence, with new shops being opened by recent Italian immigrants. Visit pizzerias that each specialize in a different type of pizza – types that symbolize its development from a lowly Neapolitan street food to a celebrated American staple.
Lower East Side Pizza Walking Tour (Lower East Side of Manhattan)
If you love pizza, welcome to one of the most pizza-dense neighborhoods, the Lower East Side. Everything from classic pizza-by-the-slice, old-fashioned Neapolitan fare to creative spins on this eponymous dish, this neighborhood has it all. Taste and discover its rich history. Learn about ancient pizza toppings and dough stretching techniques and compare the baking patterns of three different pizza ovens. This tour is for true pizza aficionados.
On your tour, you'll visit three of the following pizzerias:
Lombardi’s, Joe’s Pizza, Louie & Ernie’s, Rizzo’s, Keste, Nunzio’s, Sam’s Restaurant, John’s of Bleecker St, Best Pizza, Patsy’s, Totonno’s, Luzzo’s, Arturo’s, Sac’s Place, NY Pizza Suprema, Pizza Roma, J&V Pizzeria, Ben’s of Soho, Zero Otto Nove, Pizza Box, Rose & Joe’s Italian Bakery, Parisi Bakery, Pugsley’s, Pala, Via Tribunali, Williamsburg Pizza or Two Boots

Joe was the best tour guild we have had. He is so enthusiastic about pizza and the history of pizza. Definitely would recommend this to families visiting the city or those who want to know the history behind all the famous pizza joints in New York.
