Newport is as famous for its coastal beauty as it is for its architectural magnificence. Enjoy both of the city's splendors on a tour that combines a stroll along the Cliff Walk with a visit to The Breakers, one of the most spectacular mansions. Resplendent with wildflowers, colorful birds, and interesting geology, Cliff Walk is a scenic stretch that takes you between Newport's rocky coastline and the "backyards" of many palatial cottages. Along the way, your guide will share stories of America's "Gilded Age." Upon arrival at The Breakers, you are immediately struck by the grandeur of the property. Designed by architect Richard Morris Hunt for Cornelius Vanderbilt II, this Italian Renaissance palace was completed in 1895. The interiors are spectacular and the grounds are populated with mature trees. At the conclusion of your tour, your transportation will return you to the tender pier.
