Little Italy is a charming cultural and ethnic neighborhood located in the heart of downtown Baltimore and is one of the city’s busiest restaurant districts. Its name is derived from the large number of Italian immigrant families that moved into the area. Little Italy is located between the Inner Harbor and historic Fells Point, millions of visitors frequent Little Italy to dine at its almost 30 restaurants, watch outdoor movies, attend its Italian festivals, or simply stroll through the old country streets. There is very little resident turnover in Little Italy – making the housing market very hot. Also this close knit neighborhood has a reputation of being one of the safest neighborhoods in the city of Baltimore.
