During your Philadelphia trip, the main items in your agenda are Independence Hall and Liberty Bell. On the fourth of July 1776, the United States Declaration of Independence was written and signed in the Independence Hall, as was the Constitution. The Declaration is kept in Liberty Bell, a structure inside the Independence National Historical Park. Liberty Bell is the symbol of freedom and independence to every American citizen. To take a look at the original Constitution America’s most important document you need to go to the National Constitution Center. If you love nature, you should take a look at the Academy of Natural Sciences, where you can find reconstructions of extinct species like dinosaurs and exotic creatures. In Philadelphia you can taste any cooking style in the restaurants spread all over the city. For your shopping spree, go to South Street, Rittenhouse Row, Jewelers' Row, University City, Manayunk, and Chestnut Hill (but keep into account that prices in America are net before taxes). There is also a fascinating “jewelers’ street,” actually a quarter with about three hundred shops (and they say some of the world’s best ancient diamonds). Finally, if you are keen on antiquarian items you will love the Street of Antiquities tour.
