Look for date when they hold their open house and try to visit several more each year! get to experience several cultures including food samples and a tour of their embassy, and history.

NYC doesn't have this: many of the embassies open their doors to the public on two weekends in May. Last week was the non EU embassies. This week was the EU ones. Last week we went to Egypt, Malaysia, Haiti, Korea; this week we went to Belgium, Great Britain, Italy, Denmark. The only major disappointment was Italy, where we waited over an hour to wait in line again for pizza (for a fee) and espresso in paper cups (for a fee)...very little of the wonderful Italian culture was on display, although there were fabulous Italian cars on the grounds. Wear good walking shoes; although there are buses there are often waits for them.

Did four different embassys tours today and the France/Germany line up was fourty five minutes long. Looked at the different displays and sampled different foods. Toured Spain and Russia and getting into their embassy was much easier. Again different culture things to see and food sampling. Some embassies even have free give a ways. Taking the different free buses to the diffferent locations aare good and timely. However the success of the embaassy tours appears to be causing longer line ups and in my my opinion needs to be addressed by extending the hours of touring!

This is an awesome thing to walk or drive down. Embassy row is some of the coolest and largest building/homes that I have ever seen. Many of the countries put their own design touches on the buildings that make them all unique.
