    Visiting the city of Washington DC in one day from New York is one of the most requested and appreciated tours we offer.

    What Attractions you will see in Washington

    The Capitol is the headquarters of the two branches of the United States Congress, the tour includes a stop to listen to the history of this historic building and to climb the imposing staircase that leads to the palace, from here you will have a view of the Mall, on the Washington Memorial surrounded by flags up to the Lincoln Memorial with the Reflecting Pool.The Palace suffered damage during the war against the British army in 1812, it was completely rebuilt in 1869, since then over the years it has been periodically restored.

    We will then stop at the White House, The White House residence of the President of the United States. The whole area is closed to traffic, so we could get off the bus and with the guide approach the gate to take pictures and admire the garden and the outside of the building. For the visit to the White House to effect the classic tours there are very specific procedures for American citizens, who must apply to their parliamentary reference. For foreign citizens, on the other hand, one could apply at the embassy, but after 2001 they were suspended. Unlike Capitol Hill, the White House is certainly smaller but remains the undisputed symbol of political power.


    The visit to the Arlington National Cemetery is one of the most evocative stages during our Tour, expanses of white gravestones, more than 400,000 American soldiers are buried, monuments and amphitheaters and then the emotion in front of the Kennedy Family's tomb, always evocative of the Guard in front of the Unknown Soldier.

    The main attractions you will see include: Arlington Cemetery, the White House and Capitol Hill, symbols of power and Washington's political life. But you will also visit some of the most well-known memorials, Lincoln and the famous Reflecting Pool, the Vietnam and the Korean Memorial, and also the fun Air and Space Museum. During the city tour you will also have time for a quick snack (not included). You will return to New York in the evening.
