Take a day trip out of the city to soak up the history and architecture of another East Coast metropolis – Washington, DC. Check out the monuments and memorials of the National Mall, see the White House and dive into the fascinating exhibits at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.

Meet your bus in midtown Manhattan and climb on board for the drive south to the United States capital. Pass through New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland in air-conditioned comfort before arriving in D.C. Your first stop is at Arlington National Cemetery, where you make a visit to the Kennedy family gravesite and spend a reverent moment paying your respects among the sea of white crosses.

Continue on to Capitol Hill, the heart of the country’s political activity. Make short stops at the Capitol and Senate Buildings, and admire the White House from across the lawn as your guide shares facts and information.

Stop at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, where you have a full 90 minutes to explore the amazing exhibits of this world-class institution—home to the largest collection of historic aircraft in the world. After that, ride to the National Mall, where you can gaze up at the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial and pay your respects at the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials. Your day in DC concludes with a narrated drive along the Potomac and by the capital’s major sights before hitting the road to head back to Manhattan.

5/5 23 Apr. 2019

E' stata una giornata splendida, la guida molto preparata, simpatica, disponibile, per darci la possibilità di vedere più cose possibili ci ha fatto mangiare (pranzo al sacco) nel bus in modo di non farci perdere la mezz'ora a disposizione per il pranzo.
