Useful information


The heart of the area where William Penn first settled, Philadelphia's Old City, which stretches from Florist Street in the north, Walnut Street in the south, Sixth Street in the west and the Delaware River in the east, has undergone a spectacular renaissance. Trendy restaurants and restored historical buildings (hosting theatre companies, artists' workshops and art galleries) now populate the neighbourhood, which also has original shops and friendly cafés.
