Bella Vista: A Beautiful Sight

Voted the Best Neighborhood in Philadelphia in 2016, Bella Vista more than lives up to its namesake of “beautiful sight”. This Italian-inspired community in South Philadelphia is known for its fantastic food, as well as its friendly neighborhood vibe. Perhaps the best-loved feature of Bella Vista is the 9th Street Italian Market, one of the oldest operational open-air markets in the nation. Once a quiet residential area, Bella Vista has blossomed into a melting pot of cultures, of businesses, and of beautiful homes. If you’re looking for a laid-back, friendly, and fun community that truly does have a taste for everyone, then Bella Vista is the place to start your home search.
