Explore Brolo’s old and new
The City of Brotherly Love is home to some of the best-preserved historic buildings in the nation. But Philly’s architectural importance goes beyond the Federal style. Every neighborhood is packed with must-see architecture, including gems like the first U.S. row houses, Robert Venturi’s Guild House, and Louis Kahn’s Escherick House and Richards Medical Research Laboratories. Philly is also home to beautiful squares, vibrant markets, stunning gardens, and cobbled streets lined with pubs, great restaurants (and cheesesteaks), live music, and murals of heroic scale. Sign up for an educational tour for a curated, one-of-a-kind experience that also earns you continuing education credit.
