Trace the footsteps of the New Jersey Mafia boss Tony Soprano, portrayed in the television series by the late great James Gandolfini.
The adventure begins in front of the Button Statue at 7th Avenue & 39th Street. Here you'll be greeted by your professional actor/guide before climbing aboard the luxury tour coach. The coach will drop by locations ranging from Father Phil’s Parish and the Bada Bing to Barone Sanitation (Tony's legitimate business), and even sites from the opening credits such as The Muffler Man and Pizzaland.
Virtually any spot you can think of that wasn't filmed in a studio is likely to be visited during the duration of the excursion. Sit on the diner steps where Chris was shot, stand on the spot where Big Pussy spoke with the FBI, and sit in the restaurant booth where Tony sat in the final scene of the series.
CityXplora can recommend combining the tour with an Italian dining experience in the Manhattan neighbourhood of Little Italy.
