    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 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.

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.

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.
