I was in Boston on December 3 last year, I state that I did the one-day tour, starting from Manhattan with the bus were about 3 hours of travel, we went through many cities, I saw all the wonderful American roads.
Provided that, for the next year I would like to return, to make at least a few more days ..I knew it was a city full of history but no, that was the city where the history of America was born, well I was enchanted by this magnificent city ..
In a single day, with everything there is to see ,you can not do it, I still intent on wanting to return I created my Road map on things to see and 3 days there are all!
The flight, calculating that I leave Milan, direct would be about 11 hours .. I know they are not few but believe me pass quickly,for accommodation, choose a hotel that is in a fairly central area ..Before leaving always mark the most important things to see that are:
1.Freedom Trail:The red concrete footpath, which runs through the entire city for 4km. Begin at the Boston Common Park Visitor Information Center, and end at the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown, touching the State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground (Boston’s oldest cemetery), America’s first public school, the statue of Ben Franklin, an ancient library, the Old State House (the oldest building in Boston), the site of the Massacre Massacre Massacre, the Faneuil Hall, the house of Paul Revere … in total, 16 must-see monuments to see (all)
2.Old North Church:The oldest church in Boston, located at 173 of Salem street, it is said that on the night of 18 April 1775 the sacristan Robert Newman hung two lanterns on the bell tower, signal agreed with Paul Revere to signal the approach, via water through the Charles River, of the British troops. With an epic ride, narrated in a famous poem by Henry W. Longfellow, Revere was able to warn the leaders of the insurrection: it was the beginning of the American Revolution.
3.Faneuil Hall:The history of the American Revolution has also passed from here: many famous speeches by patriots were held at Faneuil Hall. Today, in the four buildings that make up the market, you can walk, shop by walking carts and stalls or eat in one of the many restaurants and appreciate the many street artists that crowd the pedestrian area. The waterfront of Boston is just steps away, and watch the calendar: many musical and theatrical festivals are held here, and believe me is the most beautiful place, where to spend a carefree afternoon.
4.BOSTON PUBLIC GARDEN: What I noticed when visiting New York Washington and Boston is that the Americans, known for building magnificent skyscrapers, and ultra modern buildings, who still want to have a place to relax and enjoy the pleasures that only nature give you, that’s why I think the parks the best in the world, and the one in Boston is really beautiful ..
5. Paul Revere House: Boston is the cradle of the American Revolution, and the goldsmith-hero Paul Revere is one of the patriots symbol of that historical moment. A visit to his house, transformed into a museum, is a great way to approach a fundamental historical phase, and to see how we lived between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the (future) United States of America: today about 90 percent of the house it is as it should have appeared in 1680, and a visitor center has just been opened to discover the life and art of Paul Revere.
6.HARVARD: one thing that makes America prestigious is its universities, and the oldest American university is that of Boston .. have you seen Harvard? exactly that! tell you that it was wonderful to walk through the avenues of the most famous college in the world and say little think, that in that university have studied two of the people that I admire most and who are as inspiring me as the Obama .. was crazy!
7.MASSACCHUSSETS STATE HOUSE : the legislature building of the state of Massachusetts is located in Boston, on a hill of Beacon Hill, really nice neighborhood, the dome will surely attract your attention, originally created in wood, was changed by too many water infiltrations and worked with the copper at the behest of Mr. Paul Revere, who at the time worked with copper and knew that there would be no more infiltrations.
8.KING’S CHAPEL :The beautiful stone chapel was erected in the second half of the eighteenth century, and is the one whose original form can still be seen today in the current structure. It was built on a previous sacred building, built entirely of wood, dating back to the end of the seventeenth century and wanted by King James II of England. The history of this building was quite troubled because the settlers did not want to sell their land to build a non-puritan church. The church, in fact, was to be a Catholic, Catholic place of worship just like the king who wanted to build it. After several adventures, however, the king found a free land in a public cemetery where he saw his wish fulfilled.
9. TEA PARTY BOSTON MUSEUM: It is said that it was one of the causes of the American War of Independence, and it is said that to flow It was a group of young Americans who sivestì from Indians and once salutes on English ships threw tons of tea into the river ..I’ve been there, and I must say that the museum (very small) the moored ship and the little shop deserve to be visited!!
10. CELTICS AND RED SOX: EVERYONE knows that for Americans two sports are very important baseball and basketball ,and Boston boasts two great teams in this, Baseball the much-loved Red Sox, the team has always been in mayor league, the team was founded in 1901 and has won hundreds of prizes and championships ..
But I want to say you only one thing, from my heart to all of you, travel is a moment for ourselves to feel good, Don’t follow the words of tourist guides, travel bloggers, journalists or those who have said that trip before you, as I suggest you, too, mark the places that are really worth seeing, and organize your trip like experienced travelers and enjoy every second every second .. every corner and breathe deeply the air around you .. so you’ll love all the places you visit.
