Park/Starting Point - 1600 Lubbock, Houston, TX


Italians migrated to Texas directly from Italy through the port of Galveston and established neighborhoods throughout the region, deeply influencing Houston and Texas culture.

Tour a 6th Ward neighborhood that was home to many transplants from Italy to discover what life was like in a new land. We begin our tour at Houston’s oldest church which was influential in the life of the Italian immigrant community. At stops along the way, you will have the opportunity to meet descendents of original families from the neighborhood telling the stories of their families.

Enjoy a tasting of Sicilian wines as well as a few other culinary surprises. Saluti!

Tickets $55 each, prepaid reservation only.
