Spend a full day in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh and include this early morning, then visit the Cathedral of Learning and its Nationality Rooms. Have lunch on Craig Street and spend the afternoon in the museums.

This is simply stunning! Beautiful architecture and stained glass windows. The gentleman taking care of the memorial was very knowledgeable telling the history of the memorial. Ask him to play the organ! Beautiful acoustics!
