Little Italy Homes, Condos, & Lofts for Sale in Downtown San Diego
The sloping landscape at the northern edge of San Diego Bay was once home to a highly successful tuna fishing industry and the many Italian families who derived their living from the coastal waters. The unique street scape now comprises a lively urban village with single-family homes, condominiums and apartments. The Little Italy sign hangs prominently over India Street, the main commercial corridor, which is alive with restaurants, small cafés, boutiques, galleries, specialty shops and abundant public art. Amici Park, lined with cypress trees and featuring a bocce ball court, adjoins the rebuilt Washington Elementary School, providing a playground for students and open space for the community. The neighborhood also hosts a variety of annual arts and holiday festivals, including ArtWalk and Festa.
