A complete itinerary for a week-long New York visit, also including a couple of excursions outside the city.

Day 1

The first day can be dedicated to visiting Midtown Manhattan. To avoid the queues at the entrance it is advisable to start the day by visiting the Empire State Building, a symbol of the Big Apple, and then head in the second part of the morning to Eataly and Union Square, the historic New York square located at the intersection of Broadway and Fourth Street, while at lunchtime it is possible to stop at the Chelsea Market (a large culinary loft).

In the early afternoon enjoy a walk along the Highline, a linear park that has been created along a disused section of the elevated railway, to get to Pier 82 and enjoy a nice cruise aboard Circle Line Cruises (included in the City Pass), at the end of which a short visit will be made toIntrepid Museum which is located at Pier 86.

Before returning to the hotel for a well-deserved rest, you cannot miss a night visit to Times Square, a real icon of the Big Apple, famous all over the world for the bright and immense digital billboards that surround it.

Day 2

The second day begins in the name of culture, with a visit to the Natural History Museum which will take all morning.

Once you leave the museum, enjoy a walk down the hill Central Park, the largest park in the borough of Manhattan. Close the second day with a visit to Rockefeller Center and enjoy the panorama of the Big Apple from the panoramic terrace of the Top of the Rock.

Day 3

The third day will be dedicated to the attractions of Lower Manhattan, where the financial center of the city is also located. Start the day with a visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, upon returning from which you will have the opportunity to visit Battery Park and Bowling Green.

Going up the borough of Lower Manhattan take a trip to the Trinity Church, located at the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway. From here you can visit the Big Apple financial district by walking Wall Street arriving up to the building of the Federal Reserve.

Continue the day by visiting the One World Trade Center and the 9/11 memorial museum, and then close in total relaxation by dedicating yourself to shopping at the Century 21st.

Start the fourth day by visiting the UN Building, which overlooks the East River, and then make your way to Grand Central Terminal, the most famous train station in Manhattan.

At lunchtime, take 2 hours to visit the Madame Tussaud's, the wax museum in NY, and then head to the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge.

Return to the Lower Manhattan borough again to visit some typical neighborhoods of the Big Apple. Chinatown and Little Italy are a must, but Soho and the Greenwich Village they are, in our opinion, gorgeous. Also check out Washington Square Park.

Rely on an organized tour to dedicate this day to visiting Washington DC, the capital of the United States.

Alternatively, you can visit Boston or Philadelphia in a day, according to your wishes and curiosities.
