Philadelphia

Overview

Sandwiched between New York City and Washington DC, with easy connections to both, Philadelphia, can offer more than its larger neighbours in a short visit. The several attractive districts making up the centre of the ‘City of Brotherly Love’, are cut by cobbled streets and landscaped parks, showing many eras of the city’s history which dates beyond the late 18th century, when it was briefly the nation’s capital and the second largest settlement in the British Empire. The original parliament building, Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell, housed in an adjacent museum, are testament to the city’s key role following the Revolutionary War. The contemporary feel of the city is driven by modern art and music, while the city holds fine art beyond its diminutive scale; the fantastic private art collection of the Barnes Foundation, full of Impressionist masterpieces, has been moved from the suburbs to a city centre location, alongside a museum dedicated solely to the most impressive array of Rodin works outside France.
