Tour shows off homes of famed mobsters - Image

While many people may travel to Chicago for the shopping and the deep dish pizza, there are a number of travellers who have a fascination with the mob history of the Windy City.

Now, travellers will have the opportunity to get a first-hand look at a mobster's life, according to the Vancouver Sun. There is now a tour bus available in Chicago that gives visitors a first-hand look at some of the most famed places in the mob scene - their suburban homes.

According to the news provider, although the tourists do not actually get to go in the facilities, they pass a number of homes that were once owned by mobsters. The reason they cannot go inside is because people continue to occupy the homes.

Still, the news provider reports that some of the houses of such famed mobsters as Paul "The Waiter" Ricca and Tony "Joe Batters" Accardo, the latter of whom featured a board room and a giant bank vault in his basement, are featured on the tour.
