I love beautiful buildings and statues and love to take photos … this is one to add to the "worth the trip" list.

Beautiful piece of history, sat in divided pews, crypt was interesting; but, I would have skipped the bell tower because of so many flights of steep steps-dangerous with not much to see that photos on the main floor could not show. Must visit the church!

You sit in the divided pews and listen to a lecture of the history of the church. It's on the Freedom Trail and worth a stop.

We made a quick visit of the church and grounds. It is very impressive and interesting, especially the inside of the church. We did not take the extended tower tour but really enjoyed what we did see. Many great photo ops in and out of...More

Our visit to Old North Church was an absolute favorite. We arrived shortly after they opened, and had plenty of time to wander through the church and read all of the historical information, before we took the first tour at 10am. I had goosebumps the...More

Employees were very knowledgeable. IT was an extra $2 to tour the bell tower and the crypts. So worth it!

Definitely go in and listen to the guide (10-15 minutes lesson). Just a really cool piece of world history. Whole visit won't take too long, glad I went. I would skip the chocolate shop... get a picture of Revere with steeple in background.

We took the behind the scenes tour that runs once an hour on the hour. They take you up one flight of very narrow steep stairs to see where they ring the bells, show you the crypt below the church and the outside. You do...More

This was a must see for us. While we were in the church one of the employees gave a short speech about how the church was funded by the box seats. And about Paul Revere. That adds a lot to the visit.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

The best place to take a photo of the lanterns in the steeple would be from Hull Street by Copp's Hill Burying Ground. If you'd like to attend the Lantern Ceremony itself, tickets are still available at... More

The Freedom Trail is 2.5 miles and if you stop at each of the historic sites to see them it takes 5-6 hours. The Old North Church can be seen in a self guided tour in 15-20 minutes. They do have a guided crypt and bell... More
