Europe tour planning

by suparna

Hi friends,

My husband and I are planning to celebrate our 1st Anniversary by an Europe tour (duration 18th Mar - 29th Mar, 05). Presently we are residing at Sheffield. We intend to cover Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.

Our budget for the tour is £ 1000.00 inclusive of visa and all other charges & taxes. We need your help in deciding the following:

1) The best itinerary within this budget.

2) The modes of travel we can avail and their contact points for making such bookings.

4) The contact points in the respective cities that we can contact for hotels & city tours.

5) The most dependable Schengen Visa Agent in Sheffield whom we can approach.

We thank you in advance for your time and hope to draw up a memorable tour plan.

Best regards
Suparna

If you book a flight from, say London to Warsaw with KLM, you would need to go via Amsterdam.

You can have up to 24 hours in Amsterdam and pay no extra for your flight. So now you have seen 2 cities for the price of one, having one night in Amsterdam.

Now, if you were to use the "Star Alliance" www.staralliance.com you could fly out to one place with, say Austrian airways (giving you 24 hours in Vienna) and back with Lufthansa (giving you 24 hours in Berlin). Three cities for the price of one!

Is this clear? Either way airline companies don't want to lose out against the companies that fly direct so the price is usually about the same with stop overs.

Good luck!
Ken

Hi, apart from flying you can also consider taking night trains.This would save you a night in a hotel.There is a very good one, the city night line,which has specials offers starting from 29 Euro.
Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna and Zurich are some of the destinations. The website is
www.citynightline.ch
I didn't find a link to an English version, however. You can check
www.bahn.de
then click on "international guests"
then enter" night train" in the space "kontakt" and click on "search"
You then get information in English.
Concerning visa: Switzerland is not part of the Schengen area, if you want to go there you have to find out about a Swiss visa.
I hope this helps a bit.

Travel Tips for Sheffield

by Nobbe

Sheffield is best known as the steel city. The steel industry thrived in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but dates back as far as medieval times. This was the first sight of Sheffield I saw then I entered the city....

Sporty Sheffield

by suvanki

Sheffield has a wide variety of sporting opportunities for both participating and watching.
Football- Home of the first football club- Sheffield FC. Sheffield United FC play at Bramall Lane (There are rumours of another team in the 1st division, but you have to look to the bottom of the league table to find them!) At weekends through the season, you can find local teams of all ages playing in the parks and recreation grounds. 5 a side outside at The Pitz in Attercliffe, plus indoor at sports centres.
Cricket - Local hero Michael Vaughan, has ensured a rise in popularity. One of the nicest places to watch a match is at Low Bradfield- typical English village green.
Boxing- Sheffield has Prince Naseem, Johnny Nelson, Herol 'Bomber' Graham and Brendon Ingle as it's famous boxing names.
Athletics- Don Valley Stadium hosts international and local events. Kelly Holmes recently ran her last race here. Start and finish of the annual Race for Life (breast cancer charity run) and The Sheffield half Marathon (May)

The Botanical Gardens

by TimMiles

Designed in the first half of the 19th Century, the Botanical Gardens are a very pleasant way to relax and spend an afternoon. There aren't any spectacular collections of exotic plants, but instead a very pleasant land scaped Englishness to the place, with gently landscaped path layouts. At the North end there is a recently re opened pavillion with Temperate collections from around the world, and the rest of the 8 ha. garden is snaked with paths and steps making it very nice to explore, or just sit on the grass and relax.

Watch out for the wildlife as well - there are squirrels everywhere!

There is an entrance on Clarkehouse Road to the north and Ecclesall Road to the South.

Walking..city, outskirts and beyond!

by suvanki

Never mind going into Derbyshire to visit the Peak District, (Although theres some stunning sights and walks, granted!)- Quite a bit of Sheffield is situated in the Peak National Park!

There are lots of walks around Sheffield, even near to the city centre.

The 5 Weirs walk, Trans Pennine route, The Round Walk, all pass, or brush by the city centre.

On the outskirts, still within sight or smell of the city are numerous bridle ways and public paths. Many on bus routes. Grab a map, or just wander!

Tapas.....

by suvanki about La Mancha

THIS RESTAURANT HAS NOW CLOSED! RE-OPENED RECENTLY AS A TURKISH RESTAURANT _ WILL HOPEFULLY VISIT AND WRITE TIPS.

I've left this page for nostalgic reasons - so please don't add ratings

This is now becoming a regular haunt for me!
Usually, I've been part of a large group, and we've ordered a selection of Tapas. The most recent visit we asked for a selection for £15 per head. There was a wide variety, all well cooked and served. The staff are happy to plan a menu for you.

Pre booking recommended for large parties (10% deposit required)
All meals cooked to order, so may be delays.

The restaurant is comfortable, and staff are helpful and friendly.
My most recent visit was to celebrate a friends birthday, the staff arrived at our table with a complimentary sambucca and Sombrero, which is now customary at latin/tapas establishments. At least it was a bit more low key than some places such as K Pasa (further up West Street, same side) where they expect communal singing of "Happy Birthday" and standing on chairs etc.

Vegetarian dishes available. Also, you can chose to have as little, or much as you want. The staff are pleased to recommend dishes.

Mon - Thur 12.00 - 1400 1700-23.30
Fri/Sat 12.00 - 1400 1700 - 2400
Sun 1800 - 2300 Our selection consisted of potatoes in rosemary, patatas bravas, mussels, king prawns, olives,camembert and bries deep fried in breadcrumbs, slices of aubergine deep fried in batter, stuffed peppers,calamares,fish cakes, ribs in a delicious sauce, chicken drumsticks, garlic bread with cheese/tomato, ooh, I can't remember what else, but there was plenty for everyone.

House wine £1.75/£2.25 glass/£9.50 bottle and beers San Mig,£2.50 bottle were all good too.
Jugs of Sangria are fairly potent!

On my previous visit we had 3 courses, loads of tapas, then a selection of paellas, potatoes, veg, fish and meat dishes. We hardly had room for desert, but I had orange sorbet, served in a scooped out orange shell, which was delicious.

Tapas starts at £1.70 for rosemary potatoes.
Calamares, mussels,smoked salmon around £4.50.
King prawns £5.25.

Main courses of pasta, paella, fajitas from £6.90 - £10.50
Fish/Chicken/Meat dishes£9.50 -£15 inc fresh salad and potatoes
