4th Day

NEW YORK – METROPOLITAN MUSEUM TOUR – PUBLIC LIBRARY – BROOKLYN BRIDGE TOUR

This day, given the number of travelers allows it, we will have the opportunity to move to New York as locals, with the way the overwhelming majority of city dwellers choose, otherwise we might go by coach. So, if possible, with our tour guide, we board the subway and transfer to one of the richest museums in the world, the Metropolitan Museum of Art where works of invaluable value are gathered from every culture. It is the third most visited museum in the world, after the Louvre and the British Museum. Its permanent collections include works of art from classical antiquity, ancient Egypt, Byzantine and Islamic art, paintings and sculptures by top painters, as well as an extensive collection of American, African, Asian and contemporary art and much more. Surely a single day is not enough for one to explore it all. On our official tour of the museum, our Greek tour guide will present some of the most important exhibits and give us information that only qualified experts can! As the museum is endless after our tour, our tour guide will guide you depending on your interests so that you will wander a little more in the magic of art. Later, we can relax with a stroll in Central Park, the endless park with its beautiful lakes making a boating or watching the squirrels passing by undisturbed among the New Yorkers who relax or exercise. The best way to tour this beautiful park is –weather permitting– to rent a bike. Next we will continue our tour on the public library, a beautiful building both exterior and interior, dominated by marble, frescoes, woodwork, quiet areas for reading and study. It is noteworthy that the public library is one of the most important US research libraries. Immediately afterwards we will have the opportunity to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and take the most spectacular photos! The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States (1883) and connects the municipalities of Manhattan with Brooklyn crossing over the East River. Since its inauguration it has become a symbol of New York and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Landmark in Civil Engineering in 1972. Next we return to the hotel by the subway. Our suggestion for today is to take advantage of it to see more. By subway you can depart for the Greek district of New York, Astoria. This is where the first Greek immigrants settled in search of a better life in the late 1950s and wrote their own history in New York. For the night, we suggest you spend your evening at one of Manhattan's most authentic Jazz Bar, with live music, food and drink. Because the place is often full, you can book and buy a ticket from us. For lovers of burgers and chocolate, our guide will suggest you the best hangouts in town! If the number of travelers does not allow for the subway, the day's activities may also be by coach.
