Providence Italian – Style

Friday, June 28th

Historic Federal Hill has been called the “Heartbeat of Providence” and described as “One of the top ten Little Italy’s in America”. Dedicated to the Italian immigrants who gathered here as a community, the ‘Hill’ remains a place of charm, warmth and hospitality.

Join PRIME TIME™ on Friday, June 28th for a one-of-a-kind guided tour of Historic Federal Hill in Providence, RI. The day begins with a behind-the-scenes tour of Scialo Brothers Bakery. The oldest and most famous bakery on Federal Hill, Scialo’s has been serving ‘old-world’ Italian treats for over 100 years! Today, we’ll enjoy a baking demonstration followed by a short walk over to De Pasquale Square where we’ll learn the stories of Federal Hill – yesterday & today.

Next, we’ll head to Zooma Trattoria for an authentic 3-course Italian luncheon. Zooma’s upbeat, modern atmosphere adds a new twist to trattoria style by offering traditional Neopolitan cuisine in a contemporary setting. Today’s meal choices are: Eggplant Parmigiana, Chicken Piccata or Wood Grilled Salmon. All meals are served with Caesar Salad, homemade pasta and dessert.

After lunch, the tour continues onboard an original Venetian Gondola. Experience the historical signs and sounds from a truly unique advantage point as the gondoliers row each gondola under magnificent Venetian bridges. Sit back and savor the beauty surrounding Providence’s famous Riverwalk.

The day ends as a step-on Providence Tour guide takes us through the heart of the beautiful Renaissance City point out sculpture, world renowned architecture and Benefit Street’s Mile of History – while sharing fascinating stories of long ago.
