An other nice city in the Us, is Philadelphia. I worked outside for nearly 4 years and everytimes I went to the city, I discovered new buildings, museums, shows or new restaurants.

It would be a crime to miss the Barnes’ collection. this museum is featuring 181 Renoirs, 69 Cézannes and 59 Matisses, along with works by Manet, Degas, Seurat, Prendergrast, Titian and Picasso — one of the world’s largest collections of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings and African sculpture. No photo are allowed.

Then next to it is the Rodin Museum. Not huge but worth the try.

The Constitution center needs your visit too. It is  only four pages long, but the U.S. Constitution is among the most influential and important documents in the history of the world.

The big must, is the Museum of Art. Like Philadelphia’s own Parthenon, the Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The vast collections of this temple of art make it the third-largest art museum in the country.

Among its impressive holdings in Renaissance, American, Impressionist and Modern art, some standouts include a great Rogier van der Weyden altarpiece, a large Bathers by Cezanne, a room devoted to Philadelphia’s own Thomas Eakins, and Marcel Duchamp’s notorious mixed-media Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors (The Large Glass), exactly as the dada master installed it.

The Liberty Bell’s home on Independence Mall is as powerful and dramatic as the bell itself.

If you wish to have lunch or dinner in Philly, you will find such a big variety of restaurants offfering you all kind of cuisine. The city as a impressive number of bars as well.
