Welcome to the Newport Walking Tour
Newport’s Cliff Walk features the raw, untamed, crashing waves of the Atlantic to one side and lavish, man-made Gilded Age mansions to the other. This juxtaposition creates one of the most beautiful scenic walks in the world. Get the most out of this self-guided Newport tour, which dives into the Gilded Age. Experience the Newport RI mansion tour and the stories behind the Vanderbilts, Astors, and other American millionaires behind mansions like The Breakers, Marble House, Rosecliff, and others.
