San Diego's Little Italy is a delightful combination of urban chic coupled with the history and tradition of Italian and Sicilian immigrants who settled on its shores in the early 20th century. It hosts two major festivals each year: the Sicilian Festival in May and the Little Italy Festa in October. It's a colorful and festive district that's fun just to stroll through, but if shopping is on your radar, there are numerous art galleries, home decor stores and even antique dealers. Italian eateries predominate, of course, but there are plenty of alternatives if your appetite leans toward other cuisines.
