Private Tour of Philadelphia
This city is both old and new, historical and modern. The first capital of the United States, the city of brotherly love, the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, located just two hours of drive from both New York City and Washington DC - you will fall in love with it at first sight for the beauty of its streets and buildings, for the abundance of museums and the concentration of attractions in one not so big place.
Philadelphia is a city of brotherly love! It is not as huge and bustling as New York, not as monumental and powerful as Washington, and not as European and sophisticated as Boston. At the same time, Phila combines all these qualities, plus it is beautiful, bright, cozy, historical and modern at the same time. In this small town, the main documents of our country were signed - the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the largest municipal building in America was built, the most delicious Philly cheesesteak in the world is made here: and the famous "Sunflowers" by Van Gogh hang in its museum.
In Philadelphia, we will see, photograph and discuss these interesting sights:
Independence Hall - perhaps the most significant building in the history of the formation of the United States;
The Liberty Bell is a traditional symbol of America;
the old part of Philadelphia, where we will walk along the oldest of the streets of the United States still inhabited, Elfert's Alley;
the stunningly beautiful and interesting Philadelphia City Hall, the tallest city hall in the United States, at one time the tallest stone building in the world;
Benjamin Franklin Boulevard departing from it, which can be photographed from any point as it has so much of impressive space, architectural and sculptural sights, flags of the countries of the world;
Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul - one of the largest Catholic cathedrals in the United States;
Rodin Museums and the Barnes Foundation Museum;
The Philadelphia Museum of Art that is one of the museums in the United States worthy of competing with the New York Metropolitan in its scope, volume and quality of its art collection. Van Gogh's famous "Sunflowers" are right here;
panoramic view of the whole city from the steps of the art museum;
If the weather and time permit, we will walk in the city park and/or go up to one of the observation decks and look at the city from above, the vies are so much worth it!
The tour starts at 10:00 or 10:30 in the lobby of your hotel.
This is a private tour, a licensed sightseeing guide of New York City is at your disposal throughout the entire tour.
