When it comes to Philadelphia, a visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art (and a Rocky-style run up its iconic front steps) is an absolute must!

Lucky for you, this tour starts right on those very steps, where you'll take time to observe the neoclassical architecture of the museum and look out over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. From there, your guide, a trained art historian, will take you within the museum, where you'll explore its galleries and exhibits during a tour customized to the wants of your group.

You can be certain, however, that you will spend ample time in both the European and American art wings, where works from Rubens, El Greco, Eakins, Van Gogh, and Duchamp can be found. You will also visit the American period rooms, where you'll find antique furniture and decorative arts from throughout the country's history.

After this tour, you'll definitely feel like an art champion!
