Rocky Statue, Philadelphia

4.0
Take a photo with the bronze replica of one of film's greatest boxing heroes at Rocky Statue, located at the base of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This statue was created for Rocky III, and after the movie was finished, Syllvester Stallone, the actor who brought Rocky Balboa to life, donated it to the City of Philadelphia. Now, the statue stands at the bottom of the stairs, known as the “Rocky Steps." Run to the top, recreating the iconic moment in the underdog's training montage, and take in a view of the city as you feel the rush. Remember to pack your camera and running shoes before you head out to pay tribute to Rocky.

  • As a huge fan, I could not omit when visiting Phily Rocky statue. Zapozovali we-vyfotoli. And then we wanted to in the gray teplákovkách run out the Rocky stairs, but unfortunately they had just built podium on the NFL draft. Who loves Rocky-a must see.

  • Iconic statue from an iconic movie! If you've seen the movie, many parts of Philadelphia will be at least somewhat memorable and recognizable to you. This statue commemorates the epic movie.
  • "For Stallone, Rocky’s ascent to the top of the steps is symbolic of Philadelphia, a city where an underdog can become a champion through hard work, determination, and hustle" I couldn't agree more, this Statue means a lot of different things to different peoole. It is great to see it here
  • The iconic Rocky Balboa statue paying homage to the classic movie is a must visit in Philadelphia. The lines can be long during the day but a picture here is worth it. After, make sure to run up the art museum stars playing the Rocky theme song, as you punch through the air, pretending you are Sylvester Stallone!
  • So cool!! Fictitious character that becomes a city icon. As a huge Rocky fan all my life this was so cool too be at. Small line - a guy that I don't think officially worked there kept it in fast order and took pics. I was happy to tip him for being useful even if it was unofficial work haha
  • Who does not love this amazing fictitious underdog? Now in statue format! Grab an image of the Rocky statue and then afterwards run up the nearby steps. Even if you do not run, when those steps call you then you better answer until you get to the top.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
