The City of Newport is not only one of America's oldest cities, it also has the distinction of having more original colonial period buildings than any other early American City. This lovely walking tour gives you the opportunity to experience Newport's unique charm up close.

Your guided stroll through the heart of Newport's National Registered Historic Landmarks District takes you past some of the city's most notable landmarks while your guide shares with you the stories of how this long neglected neighborhood became a model for historic preservation. With the help of tobacco heiress Doris Duke, who personally financed much of the restoration, the Historic District is now home to over 80 fully restored colonial homes. Along the way, you will pass architect Peter Harrison's Brick Market Museum, the Old Colony House, the White Horse Tavern, and the Quaker Meeting House. You will also make your way past the Touro Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in the country and one of the many sites visited by President George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others.

Your return to the pier has you traveling via the square where Hollywood producer-director Steven Spielberg filmed the movie Amistad in 1997, using the city's most picturesque landmarks.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of walking and is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those guests with mobility concerns. It is suggested that participants dress in layers and wear flat, comfortable walking shoes. The tour will operate rain or shine.
