Woman running down Rocky Steps

The eastern approach steps in front of Philadelphia Museum of Art are well known as the "Rocky Steps," thanks to their prominent appearance in the Rocky series of movies starring Sylvester Stallone.


The image of a common man like Rocky, running up the steps here then thrusting a fist into the air at the top in a sense of achievement, is something everyone can resonate with.


Needless to say, running up the steps and imitating Rocky has become a popular activity for tourists as well.
