A vibrant and culturally diverse city
Philadelphia lived for long in Big Apple’s overwhelming shadow, but recently, it begun showing its true heart, gaining popularity as a travel destination. It’s here where the roots of the American Independence began, and you’ll see traces of this glorious past in Philadelphia’s oldest historic quarter, the Old City. Add to your Philadelphia travel guide the Center City (West and East) as well, with their Chinatown, Washington Square West, the gay-friendly Gayborhood, art museum district, Rittenhouse Square, and the shopping and dining opportunities on Chestnut and Walnut Streets.

The Carlton Hotel that houses La Cupola has been a business run by the same Venetian family for over three decades, and the kind of attention to detail and passion you’d expect from such a team certainly flows over in to the hotel’s flagship eatery. Elegant reflections, crisp white tablecloths adorned with candles and a soothing beige colour scheme are the restaurants defining visual features, whilst the cuisine on offer is a range of tantalisingly forward thinking and homely, traditional Italian cuisine. Maitre Filippo Nocerino operates a restaurant with a sense of refined simplicity, La Cupola being a place that really envelops a diner, from the casual dinner guest to couples on more romantic adventures (the view over the Grand Canal making La Cupola highly recommended when it comes to the latter).
