Stopping off our our escorted tour for a night in Philadelphia. our Director suggested a visit here. I suppose it was slightly odd that, with a celebrated Museum of Art which we could have visited, we instead chose to run ( yes - run) up the "Rocky Steps", and have a photo taken next to the Rocky statue. But we... More

This statue stands next to the Rocky steps and is a nice oportunity to take a picture. It is absolutely free so don't pay the people standing next to it if they offer to take a picture. And remember to look tough on the picture ;-)

If you love the Rocky movies then this is a must see! There might be a line waiting for photos, but don't be put off it only takes a few minutes. Don't forget to run up the museum steps as well!

Well, it certainly brought back memories seeing the steps that Rocky ran up in the movie, it was an emotional moment for sure. We couldn’t find parking, but several people were parked right in front on the steps, so we parked there for a few minutes.

A must see for fans and non-fans of Rocky. The statue is no longer located at the top of the stairs. The statue is not at the bottom right of the stairs.

Philadelphia is a good place to see once about the history. Lot of historical places are there to see and wonder about

The rocky statue looked nothing like him, which is why I have rated this as average, but 'rocky's steps' was not to be missed, however better to walk up & not run unless you are mega fit. There is a good view of the steps from the city tower as well

Beware of the touts offering to hold your phone and take your picture. They are all friendly and sound like they are there as tourists only to find that after they take your picture they want paying. Frankly, I've seen the statue...no big deal!

There will always be someone trying to et some cash to take a picture of you, go early and you won't have this problem! Good history! After that you must run the stairways!

There he stands, through all of the seasons. Lately there are a few guys that have decided they are the official picture takers for everybody and they try to control the lines, etc. If you want their help, take advantage of it and give them the expected tip..because that's what it is all about.. but don't get intimidated. They are... More
