This is without a doubt the most famous statue in the city, but this excursion also takes you on a journey to its origins. To visit it on Liberty Island, we highly recommend waking up early to beat the crowds. You can take the ferry from Battery Park, at the southern tip of Manhattan, which takes you to the island. From the ferry, you will be able to see the unique view of the statue from the sea. Once there, the museum at the base of the statue is worth a visit if you are interested in learning about the statue’s origins and significance. Go up to the lookout point at the crown and take some of the most spectacular photos of the city, but remember that this must be reserved well in advance. Before or afterwards, complement your visit with a trip to the neighbouring Ellis Island, where you will find a museum dedicated to early 20th century immigration, which defines this city.
