In six hours, you could visit a dozen nations without ever leaving Massachusetts Avenue.

More than 40 stately mansions of Embassy Row were open Saturday for free public tours as part of the Around the World Embassy Tour, a Passport DC event for International Cultural Awareness Month. Each embassy shared art, music, performances and foods native to their country.

If you plan to tour the embassies next year or the Shortcut to Europe: E.U. Embassies’ Open House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 11, you should read more about managing editor Erin Klema's experience.
