Windy city

Visitors to Chicago are first amazed by its tall, modern and glittering architecture. Among its many sky-high skyscrapers, head to the Willis Tower, which offers unique views of the city from its glass-floors viewing platforms. An equally stunning bird’s eye view is also available from the 360 ​​CHICAGO viewing platform in the John Hancock Building. Fans of sightseeing should not miss the opportunity to take a photo next to Cloud Gate, a giant mirror surface sculpture known locally as “the Bean”, located in Millennium Park, also the venue for numerous events during the warmer months.

Chicago is famous for its thriving music scene and many festivals. It played an important role in the creation of jazz and blues, and it is also home to an exceptional symphony orchestra. Musical events take place all year round, so it is easy to add an evening of music to your itinerary. And if sports mean more to you than music, Chicago will certainly live up to expectations. Going to a match played by one of its professional sports teams (Cubs, Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks or White Sox) will surely impress you and will also give you a chance to meet the local fans. The city boasts numerous areas for sports activities, with a total of 26 city beaches and 580 parks.

For superb art, head to the extraordinarily large Art Institute, where you can view more than 300,000 works of art, and visit The Field Museum of Natural History for a look back in time. Many imaginative works of art are also found in the streets, so you can come across many surprises just by walking around. In addition to all the activities and attractions, Chicago also pampers visitors with good food. This multicultural city has an extremely varied culinary scene, where excellent meals can be found for every taste and wallet. But the signature dish that you simply need to taste is the “deep-dish pizza”, made in a deep baking dish and coming with a copious amount of toppings.
