Had some free time before my return journey so walked to Harvard from the bridge in Cambridge. Took 50 minutes but lovely walk down Cambridge Street from the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel. Buildings have wonderful architecture. Harvard as a campus is vast. It just felt amazing...More
If possible try to find out if there are any scheduled visits conducted by students. If not take a stroll and see the campus. After you see the main campus, the statue, the library and the freshmen´s Annenberg building go to the MBA campus accross...More
Take the red line out to Harvard and then allow yourself a good hour to two hours to wonder around. There are so many great architectural contrasts between ancient and modern to see. Also, it's nice and flat so really comfy to walk around.

There are several museums on the grounds of Harvard University that are worth visiting!!! There is one museum just outside of MIT that is also neat. We stayed halfway between both universities so we could play on both and do campus tours for our son. Very easy to get an Uber. And there is a bus line that is a straight shot between MIT & Harvard.

There is NO WAY you can see all that in one day. The good news is that the Old State House Museum , FanieulmHall and Old North Church are part of the Freedom Trail. I would suggest this: See the outside of Cheers on Beacin Street. Walk through the Public Garden to the Boston Common and start the Freedom Trail, You can take a slight detour at Fanieul Hall to see the Halocaust Memorial. Finish the Freedom tour but maybe stop before Crossing the Bridge to Charlestown for the Bunker...More

You can take the red line of the MBTA directly to Harvard Square. Sorry, I can't help with tours.
Harvard University tour (1 Replies)
My siblings and I will be in Boston from June 22 to June 25. We are planning to visit Harvard University for a tour. Upon checking their website, these dates doesn't show availability of schedule for tours. Maybe it's still to early to book a tour, but we're trying to fix our itinerary as early as now so we'd know which dates to book our hotel in Boston and in other cities. Does anyone know if we can take a tour around the campus on any of these dates? Also, any suggested itinerary for...More
