Europe Things to Do

  • Eiffel Tower

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Paris Things to Do

    This is of course a world famous symbol of Paris. Being very bad people, we did not go up it because that would have involved queuing. The Eiffel Tower is situated on the Champ de Mars. It was designed and built by engineer, Gustave Eiffel in 1889. It was originally the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair. The Eiffel Tower is 324m high, still...

    London Things to Do

    The Tower of London dates from Roman times. The present building contains nearly 1,000 years of history within its forbidding walls.

    Rome Things to Do

    On the outside of the Colosseum it is pretty obvious that it is not in its top form and has seen better days. What do you do with an old Roman amphitheater after the fall of the Roman Empire? Well, you can use the stones to build other things, after all, the stones are pre-cut and ready to use – a sort of early Home Depot. Part of St. Peter’s...

    Barcelona Things to Do

    The icon of Barcelona! ....and with good reason - Construction commenced over 100 years ago and, having been moved on more than one occasion, its most recent deadline is 2030. Even if you have visited this building before the fact that it is in a constant state of development means that there is always something new to see. For me, having first...

  • Doge's Palace

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Venice Things to Do

    On every visit of the doge's palace I was surprised by the contrast between the brightness, the clear colours and the elegance of the outside facades and the rather dark decoration from the inside of the Doges Palace. The sculptured and gilded wooden ceilings, the paintings of the masters Tintoret, Veronese, Bassano, Palma the Young and others do...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Been there in December, there was a Christmas market. It's a nice place to stroll around. If you're with kids they will love the rides there. There's a entrance fee I just don't remember how much but it was reasonable.

    Berlin Things to Do

    Parliament (Reichtag) is one of the most impressive building in Berlin. It was constructed in 1871. In 1933 it is known for a "famous" fire, when probably it was fired by Nazis and made them as one of the most popular party in Germany. After Second World War it was badly damaged, later was not used by purpose, as the parliament was moved to Boon....

  • Buda Castle - Budavar

    Budapest Things to Do

    It was noon when we came across the changing of the Guards in front of the Hungarian Presidential Palace. The crowd watching wasn't that big, although I imagine the crowds would swell in high season. The palace is called Sandor Palota (Alexander Palace), and is located by the Funicular. The display was quite small compared to displays I had seen...

  • Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore

    Florence Things to Do

    If you just came from the inside of the Cathedral, then you know how absolutely magnificent and massive this church is. If you are able to climb 463 steps, sometimes rather steep, and are not afraid of heights or claustrophobic, then I highly recommend you make the trek up to the top of the dome. Not only is the view magnificent on nice days, but...

  • Gamla Stan - The Old Town

    Stockholm Things to Do

    Gamla Stan is Stockholm's old town. It is located on an island. It used to be known as the town between the bridges. Gamla Stan dates back to the 13th century. Here you can find Stockholm's impressive baroque royal palace, where we watched the changing of the guard. Stockholm's Royal Palace was built in the 18th century to replace the previous...

    Lisbon Things to Do

    I was pleased to find that excavation at the rear of the cathedral had continued since my last visit in 2008. In consequence, the site is much easier to interpret. There are information boards in English and walkways above the excavations, so you can get excellent views of what once was. The dig goes deep enough to expose some of the pre-Roman...

  • Charles Bridge

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Prague Things to Do

    I believe this is one of the "must see" tourist attractions in Prague, the Charles Bridge. Not quite like a circus but it is busy, crowded and touristy. Lots of souvenirs for sale and street performers trying their best to sell CD's and make their tips. The bridge tower is impressive. The views from the bridge are great! It crosses the Vltava...

    The term holocaust is an ancient word derived from the Greek language—"holos" (whole) and "kaustos" (burned)—but following the conclusion of World War II the term took on an entirely new meaning. The murder of 6 million Jews in killing centers controlled by Nazi Germany in the name of racial purity revealed the cruel lengths to which humans could...

    Madrid Things to Do

    I have mentioned in other tips on tis page that I spent a most relaxing morning wandering round the Retiro Park away from the hubbub of central Madrid and one of the things I stumbled upon was the Estanque or boating lake. In my experience, boating lakes tend to be about the size of a decent jacuzzi and you basically end up going round in such...

    Hard to miss this attraction and has to be on the 'to-do' list of any visitor to Palma. Coming from the airport you get your first view of the Cathedral dominating the city skyline. The outside is fantastic; but take time to check out the interior. The entrance fee is 6 Euro. “Le Seu”, also referred to as the Cathedral of Palma, is a Roman...

    One of the best ways to see Brugge is on a 30 minute canal tour. You can pick up a canal boat at several departure points across the town and all cost 7 euros for the trip. (2013 prices). The boats all take the same route and this is a nice way to see the town from the canals. Commentary is in Dutch, French, English and German.

    Albufeira Things to Do

    The crazy construction that disfigured Algarve, has (thanks God!) spared the central area of old Albufeira. Now, cleaned and organized for touristy exhibition, the central Albufeira looks good, and, for some minutes, allows us to forget the insanity of exploitation seeking for euros (or dollars, or... just money!) that grew around it.

    Hohensalzburg, the home of the Archbishops of Salzburg for centuries, is still a draw, both for what's inside and the views from it. You can stroll around the grounds, enjoy the views from the ramparts, visit the Palace Museum, or tour the fortress itself (the latter must be done with an escorted tour, but there is no additional charge). To get...

  • Oleviste-St.Olav's

    Tallinn Things to Do

    Although the tower of this church is impressively tall, and still dominates the skyline of old Tallinn, it is perhaps hard to believe that for a time (from 1549-1625 when the Eiffel Tower was built) it was, at 159 metres, the tallest building in the world! But so it is claimed by some – and disputed by others! It was intended to serve as a...

    Warsaw Things to Do

    I arrived at my hotel, then went for a walk in the cold fresh air. The park is almost next door to the Hyatt Regency Hotel. I was surprised to see two peacocks trying to keep warm, near the Belvedere Restaurant. The other thing that was unusual about the park, was the number of crows flocking around the park and trees - some thousands of them it...

    The (mandatory) walk on the walls of Dubrovnik has two different sides: the ocean side and the land side. Most people cover only the ocean side, from where its possible to see the most beautiful points of the city. It's the easiest section with not much to go up and down. To avoid the long lines, our guide made us enter in the southern...
