Rhode Island’s historic Federal Hill has been called the “Heartbeat of Providence.” On the Hill, 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 world.

You’ll also find bakeries, coffee shops, professional services, festivals, 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.

La Pigna (“Pine Cone”), often called the pineapple, welcomes visitors as they pass under the gateway arch over Atwells Avenue.

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.
