Where the Italian Stallion took flight to prepare for his biggest fight. – In Short
Philadelphia starred in 1975's "Rocky" in the most memorable scene featuring Balboa and the steps of the Museum of Art; the "man vs. himself" dilemma played itself out with the city skyline serving as a backdrop. Sylvester Stallone himself was winded after his first run up the steps, so you might want to go back and train a bit if you don't make it the first time.
