11 “European” Cities in the United States


6) Baltimore, Maryland

During the 19th century the Port of Baltimore was the second leading port of entry for immigrants from Europe to America and Baltimore became the home of a huge number of German and Italian immigrants. German heritage can be found in buildings such as the Zion Lutheran Church and food such as Berger cookies.

Baltimore’s Italian heritage is prominent too, particularly in Little Italy where you can see annual bocce tournaments, Italian-style open-air markets, traditional Italian festivals and, of course, enjoy real Italian cuisine.
