See where America's 19th-century nouveau-riche built the showstopping mansions that serve as ambassador residences today. The two-hour walking tour of Washington's "Embassy Row" is a feast of architectural grandeur, a springboard for Gilded Age social history, and a window into diplomatic life.

In between, the high life and high architecture has made for some great stories. Alice Roosevelt Longworth delivered her famous line here — “If you don’t have anything nice to say, sit next to me” — and spirited chum Evalyn Walsh McLean lived a few doors up where she kept the Hope Diamond. Our walk ends outside the magnificent Phillips Collection museum, former residence of steel heir and avid art collector Duncan Phillips.
Meet your licensed D.C. tour guide outside the Dupont Circle Metro station at 19th Street and Connecticut Avenue, NW.
