Boston is the capital of Massachusetts in the Northeast of the US. Its pioneering role in shaping the history of the United States can be traced on the Freedom Trail, taking in significant landmarks such as the Paul Revere House, where the American patriot plotted his revolution.

Boston is a major cultural hub, with one of the “Big Five” American orchestras, a world-class opera company, and a famous theater district. The Red Sox baseball team has been playing home games in iconic Fenway Park since 1912, while Harvard is one of the world’s most prestigious universities.
