from Sopranos Sites
Take a real-life peek into the Sopranos filming locations! Join the Sopranos Sites bus tour by On Location Tours and indulge in the iconically gruesome, thrilling, and secret lives of the Sopranos!

With over 40 sites and filming locations, this one-of-a-kind sightseeing tour is a “must” for any Sopranos fan. You’ll journey from New York City to the New Jersey suburbs where you’ll immerse yourself in the world of Tony Soprano and his mafia buddies.

Tours are led by guides who are actors that have appeared as stand-ins or extras on film sets and share little-known facts and behind-the-scenes info on the locations that are visited throughout the tour.

  • Begin in New York taking in the sites as seen in the opening credits, including the exit of the Lincoln Tunnel and the famous Manhattan skyline.
  • As it arrives in Jersey, see more sites including The Muffler Man, Pizzaland, a featured Tudor house, and the ramp to the Pulaski Skyway as seen at the end of every episode.
  • The tour then hits more recognizable place such as Barone Sanitation, the Skyway Diner, Big Pussy’s auto body shop, and Satin Dolls, also known as the Bada Bing.
  • The tour visits major sites that were used in filming the show such as Cozzarelli’s; Party Box (now unoccupied), Car Wash, Searchlight Diner and St. Cecilia’s Church, all of which were locations for major scenes as seen in the series.
  • Get off the bus for a fun stop at Holsten’s (where the final scene of the last episode was shot) and enjoy complimentary onion rings. Sit in “Tony’s” booth with your family for a nostalgic photo to share with friends.
  • Another major location, Satriale’s Pork Store, was a fictional establishment that was housed in an empty warehouse next to the Irish American Club in Kearny. The set was dismantled after the filming of the series concluded, and the building was torn down to make way for condominiums, which never happened!
  • More filming locations include the Gold Driving Range, Harrison High School, Seabra’s Rodizio, the statue of Christopher Columbus, St. Cecilia’s, the Nuovo Vesuvio; and many, many more.

Tours take place on luxury coach buses, which are air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. Buses are equipped with on-board restrooms.
