*Only available in Italian and Spanish and between April - October 2020* - Greenwich Village in New York, or simply “The Village” is probably one of the most inspiring areas of the Big Apple and located on the west side of Lower Manhattan. Back in the days, when the rent of the typical brick and brownstone townhouses was still affordable, many artists, including Edgar Allen Poe and Henry James, used to called this neighborhood their home. But not only great artists were residents - The whole district was also the epicenter of political and social movements. With this great history, visiting this unique part of Manhattan is indispensable. During our enthralling two and a half hour walking tour through Greenwich in New York, you will not only discover all the emblematic areas in the heart of this charming neighborhood, but also its hidden corners. Because our Italian and Spanish speaking tour guides made New York their own home, you are guaranteed the best Greenwich Village experience in your mother language.
Meeting point will be at our office, close to the Times Square and the Rockefeller Center. Before we start our walking tour in Lower Manhattan, we will take the Subway and heading towards Greenwich Village. A one-way Subway ticket is included and will be handed out by our tour guides. As we arrive, you are going to discover the Washington Square Park, which is a landmark of New York City and accessible for everyone. Highlight of the park is the Washington Square Arch, built in 1892 to honor the centennial inauguration of George Washington. And while the green spot is next to the New York University, it is also the heart of the town college life. Furthermore, our tour guides you to the trendiest night spots as well as the magnificent house fronts in the most diverse architectural styles in this area, which are one of the most loved sceneries by movie directors. For example, the main character of Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw, has her apartment in the streets of this charming district. Missing out this walking tour through New York’s most fascinating neighborhood is not an option! As our tour ends in The Village, why don’t you try a cupcake in one of the cozy local bakeries afterwards?
