CHRIS­TINE’S PER­SONAL TOUR

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE -

Favourite shop BOVA’S BAK­ERY

Bova’s has fan­tas­tic Ital­ian pas­tries and cal­zones. It’s fam­ily owned and al­ways open. bov­abak­ery­boston.net

Favourite gallery IS­ABELLA STE­WART GARD­NER MU­SEUM

A lesser-known mu­seum, the Is­abella Ste­wart Gard­ner has one-of-a-kind art col­lec­tions, and was the site of a $500 mil­lion art bur­glary al­most three decades ago. gard­ner­mu­seum.org

Favourite restau­rant ANTICO FORNO

Antico Forno is home to de­li­cious Ital­ian food from an authen­tic brick oven. I get the Riga­toni Sal­s­ic­cia ev­ery time. an­ti­co­forno­boston.com

Favourite bars LANS­DOWNE PUB

With live mu­sic at the week­ends, this bar, across from Fen­way Park (home of the Red Sox), is the place to go if you en­joy danc­ing at night. lans­downepub­boston.com

BELL IN HAND TAV­ERN

The old­est tav­ern in Amer­ica, and still thriv­ing. Bell is a pop­u­lar choice among Bos­ton’s young lo­cals, so get there early at the week­end to beat the line. bellin­hand.com

Favourite way to spend an hour

Walk­ing around Bea­con Hill, Bos­ton’s most pic­turesque neigh­bour­hood, which is packed full of his­toric homes. Acorn Street is the most pho­tographed spot and one of my favourites.

Favourite mar­kets SOWA OPEN MAR­KET

From May to Oc­to­ber in Bos­ton’s South End, this ar­ti­sanal mar­ket has ev­ery­thing from art to craft beers. sowa­boston.com/sowaopen-mar­ket

HAY­MAR­KET

A Bos­ton in­sti­tu­tion, Hay­mar­ket started al­most 300 years ago. This out­door mar­ket sells fresh and lo­cal pro­duce on Fri­days and Satur­days. hay­mar­ket­boston.org

Place to see by night

The Look­out Rooftop bar at the En­voy Ho­tel in Sea­port has stel­lar views of the city. out­lookkitchenand­bar.com/ look­out-rooftop-and-bar
