Navigating the historic city of Boston replete with all things dreamlike and beautiful: skyline, sunsets, cobblestone streets merging into secret alleys, architecture, museums and art galleries.

 

Pay a Visit to Museum of Fine Arts 

 

One of the finest museums in the world and fifth largest in the US with a breath-taking collection of art spanning across continents, Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) is a must-visit if you are setting foot in the city for the first time. MFA’s cultural and historical highlights lure tourists, researchers and professionals, locals and eminent personalities. At the gallery, you can obtain a spectacular glimpse at the art collection of Ancient Greece and Rome, Egypt, Europe; contemporary art, paintings, musical instruments and handiwork on textile and apparel.

 

Empty a Day’s Slot for Faneuil Hall

 

Exploring the marketplace is equivalent to indulging in centuries-old history—events that unfolded in this ‘home of free speech’. Constructed in 1743, the marketplace has since become a platform for fierce protests and stormy workers’ demonstrations that culminated in the Revolutionary War. Innumerable shops are lined up to satisfy your urge for packing a few souvenirs, delicacies, artefacts and beautiful art pieces for personal collection and as gifts. The marketplace is a fine option if you are in the mood for a leisurely stroll followed by a sumptuous lunch.

 

Experience the Sunset at Seaport District

 

The District has a buzz in the neighbourhood whose melody never dies down. Seaport District has evolved with the advancement of innovation, modern technology and cultural shifts thereby attracting major upscale companies to set up offices in the region.

 

The region has the perfect amalgamation of silhouettes of sky-scraping condos and untainted stretches of nature to unwind for a while. You would be amidst a young and exhilarating workforce that flocks to the area often. Besides relaxing at the waterfront, browse through the restaurants and pubs for a replenishing meal.

 

Appreciate the Masterpiece called Harvard Square and Harvard Art Museum 

 

The oldest and most eminent intuition of higher education in the US and abroad, the campus atmosphere is lively with the throng of students, visitors and ‘townies’ who crowd its many shops, ice-cream parlours, bookstores. The Square is teeming with activities. As you tour Harvard, sign up for the Crimson Key Tour, taste some delicious burgers from the nearby joints, slurp on refreshing beverages at the dainty cafes, silently observe the river which blooms vigorously almost as if a painting during Fall and, finally, take a stroll along the Mt. Auburn Street.
