Take a trip to medieval Europe without leaving Manhattan at the Met Cloisters.
This extraordinary museum, located in Fort Tryon Park, is made up of relocated Romanesque abbeys, with a collection dedicated to art and treasures from the Middle Ages.
Highlights include stained glass from the 13th century, jewelry, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts and the richly detailed Unicorn Tapestries.
Outside, gardens overlooking the Hudson River replicate those from the Middle Ages. It's a picturesque setting in which to take a relaxing stroll.
