Catacombs by Candlelight Tour of The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Lunch in Little Italy ~ Five Points of Manhattan City Hall Park Walk on the Brooklyn Bridge
One Day Tour ~ Fall 2021
Join us for this most unusual and exciting Catacombs by Candlelight Tour walking tour of the The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. Not to be confused with St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown, this historical church in lower Manhattan has been a landmark for more than 200 years, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tour highlights include the rare opportunity to explore the only active catacombs in New York City, access to sacred sites and hidden areas of the Basilica grounds that are normally barred to visitors. Our entertaining guide will also provide us with a history of the church, as well as who once frequented it, and who still rests in its catacombs. Next, we can either ride or enjoy a leisurely stroll down Mulberry Street into the heart of Little Italy, where we then enjoy an included lunch. After time to shop and sightsee, we take a short drive to the nearby City Hall Park. This area is next to a several thousand-year-old Indian trail, which has been used as a pasture, a prison, a parade ground, a public execution site and more. Today, it’s where City Hall is located, and where countless movies and episodes in Law and Order and Blue Bloods have been filmed. After an orientation walk, free time is provided to sightsee and even take a stroll on the nearby pedestrian portion of the Brooklyn Bridge.
