Providence’s historic Federal Hill has been called the “Heartbeat of Providence” and begins at Atwells Avenue. There, you can listen to church bells while walking on cobblestone paths, shop at food markets and boutiques, or dine in some of the finest restaurants in the country.
You’ll also find bakeries and coffee shops, professional services, and live music outdoors in the square.
Federal Hill spreads beyond Atwells Avenue to Broadway, a street with wonderful architecture, restaurants and local merchants, all the way to Westminster and Cranston Streets.
A place dedicated to the Italian immigrants who gathered here as a community, Federal Hill remains a place of charm, warmth and hospitality to all who visit.
