At the start of the morning, we'll begin our tour of the district with a ride on the aerial metro. This symbol of the city has been in existence since 1892! It offers a remarkable urban panorama of the city. It has even become one of the symbols of Chicago. The section nicknamed "Elevated Train" or "the L" attracts visitors. The metro follows a loop (The Loop) around downtown Chicago.
Very cinematic and photogenic, the aerial metro is a must-see in the area. Its metal structures, set among the buildings, will remain a powerful image of the city. Featured in numerous films and TV series (The Fugitive, Ocean's Eleven, ER, Two Cops in Chicago), this metro is an experience not to be missed. Once you have completed your itinerary, stop at Quincy metro station. This is one of the city's oldest stations, dating back to 1897! It's on the west side of the Union Loop, still in the Loop sector.
