    Get an in-depth look at Chicago Loop architecture on a walking tour that takes you inside landmark buildings in the design-rich city. Appreciate the interiors of the Marshall Fields Building, Chase Tower, Chicago Cultural Center and more, plus see public art by Chagall and Picasso. Stroll through elegant lobbies, under glittering domes and into the sprawling network of Chicago Pedway tunnels. Your expert guide shares insights about the city's diverse architectural styles and history, bringing the details of the Windy City into vivid focus. Your tour starts out as you meet your guide at Chase Tower to start your exploration of the Loop's interior architecture. Expect to walk a half mile (0.8 km) during an easy 2-hour walking tour with plenty of stops. Your guide shares expertise in architecture, design, art history and history, and provides participants with iPads that show archival images such as maps, historic photos and documentary video clips. Walk through the Marshall Field's Building, where you'll see famous elements of this iconic edifice, including its beautiful atrium and a Tiffany & Co-designed mosaic ceiling. Ponder the design of the very modern Block 37 complex, situated in the heart of the Loop at a trend-setting location where the city's first skyscrapers and supermarkets were built. See the extensive public plaza, which sits at the geographic center of the Chicago Loop and features Marc Chagall's Four Seasons mural. Admire another famous piece at Daley Plaza: the untitled Chicago Picasso sculpture, which stands 50 feet (15 meters) tall and was the Windy City's first piece of public art. Look at the city through the lens of the Chicago Pedway system -- a network of ground-level concourses, tunnels and bridges that connects buildings throughout Chicago's central business district. Discover how to maneuver through the Pedway and find your way from underneath the downtown. Your tour concludes at the Chicago Cultural Center, a landmark building where you see a magnificent stained glass dome. It was completed in 1897 and originally was Chicago's first central public library. Afterward, say farewell to your guide and make your way to your next destination.
