The Villa Toscana is located in the very heart of the bustling Boystown/East Lakeview neighborhood. Just steps from the inn along North Halsted Street you will find an eclectic assortment of restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, and other retail spaces unique to the village. A few blocks west lies a thriving theatre district along Southport Avenue, to the south is picturesque Lincoln Park, and it is just a short walk east to Broadway, Belmont Harbor and the beaches of Lake Michigan. A 15-minute walk northwest leads you to Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Public transit is readily available with the #8 Halsted bus next to the inn (southbound in front of Peet's Coffee, northbound in front of Tulip) and the Red Line train station located on Addison Street next to Wrigley Field.
