The Basics

The Rocky Statue—and behind it, the Rocky Steps—are a symbol of Philadelphia that attracts more than just film or fighting enthusiasts. You’ll usually see a line of people waiting to take a photo with the statue, and many run to the top of the steps to reenact Rocky’s pose.

Most city sightseeing tours include the statue—swing by on a walking excursion, hop-on hop-off bus tour, or trolley ride. If you’re a true Rocky fan, opt for a tour that visits various Rocky filming locations.
