I know what you’re thinking, one day in certainly not enough to visit a city. But if for some reasons you find yourself in this situation, I will guide you through the places you really cannot miss in Berkeley. Start your day with visiting some of the main historical hotspots of the city: the Sproul Hall, Sather Gate (remembered especially for the many protests for freedom of speech that took place there in the ‘60s), Sathet Tower and the impressive Hearst Mining Building, where Roosevelt had a speech back in 1903. Then go ovest towards the Life Science Building, a massive building with really nice external decorations with animals figures. For a relaxing afternoon, I would suggest you go to the Faculty Glade, full of oaks, cedars and amazing lawn, ideal for a picnic or a nap. Another interesting place is the Berkeley University Art Museum, located in a weird building shaped as a fan. It was founded back in the ‘60s by the expressionist Hoffman, who left many of his pieces to the museum. Near the Museum you can find the University Botanic Garden and the Lawrence Hall of Science, a science museum with a suggestive view of the Bay.
