  • Eiffel Tower

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Paris Things to Do

    We unfortunately did not book tickets in advance to visit the Eiffel Tower. We also did not think it a good idea since we visited Paris end of April and the weather would be very unpredictable. However, we chose to visit on the last day of our trip and it was pouring with rain, so having a ticket in advance would've been helpful. We did fall in...

    Paris Restaurants

    Last visit April 2014 to the Rue de Rivoli location There are many menu items on Angelina's menu, indeed we saw several people eating sandwiches and salads but my focus for my birthday splurge was two of the menu items that Angelina is famous for, the hot chocolate l'Africain and the Mont Blanc. In the late afternoon we were able to walk in and...

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Amsterdam Restaurants

    Automatic vending machines for burgers, chips (fries) and croquettes. It's pretty cheap and pretty terrible. But if you're hungry, everything else is closed and you don't fancy a night shop rip-off, then needs must when the devil vomits into your kettle (c) Blackadder. Not a huge range for vegetarians. Situated all over town. I've only ever had...

    Trevi Fountain is the largest and most popular baroque fountain in all the city. Bernini initially placed the fountain on the side of the square in front of the Quirinale palace, so the pope could enjoy it(quirinale has also been pope's palace for a while).

    Rome Restaurants

    The Odd Room is an easy going restaurant, with good food and friendly waiters who even did their best to explain the menu to me in English. Plain furniture, wooden tables and bar stools. I sat close to the front door, but there are also benches at the back for couples in search of a little more privacy. I had a three course menu: bruschettone, some...

    Barcelona Things to Do

    An awesome and fabulous architectural fusion of various architectural styles from Gothic, to Baroque with a mix of Andalusian, merged with a very abstract representation of a rain forest. A must visit whilst in Barcelona. Although we had also booked entry to the Passion Towers, it was a disappointment as there was not side much to view from there....

    If Harry's Bar is on your list of things to do in Venice, cross it off. For 33 euros you get 2 Bellini's. (Prosecco & Peach) served in a plain tumbler, which didn't taste any different to any other Bellini served anywhere else in Venice for around 6 Euros a glass. Save your money, pop your head in the door for a look and then go somewhere else for...

    Vienna Things to Do

    This palace is not far from the Soviet War Memorial and not far from our favourite Vienna hotel - Hotel am Konzerthaus, so we regularly visit. The gardens here are filled with beautiful statues and lots of lovely fountains. The gardens are free entry and are a great place to sit in or to enjoy a stroll through.

    The last time we were in Vienna, we didn't get the opportunity to visit Demel. This time, we weren't going to pass up the opportunity. We met up with one of LJ's friends (from when she used to live here) and headed to Demel for lunch/dessert. A classic, historic and wonderful place to visit...just the desserts alone make this a "must-see"...

    This place is gorgeous. Quite expensive. But for western european tourists...quite a steal. Just imagine this place in Paris or Vienna. Because of a lack of time...I went in and asked for takeaway. People recommend the Foie Gras pate here. And I have to second that. Simply sublime. Because I was taking it out...I was charged 2200ft for about...

    I just strolled there on July around noon, shirtless, soaking up the intense sunshine! Very colorful, relaxed and copacetic. Got a beer at a café, very expensive like 13 USD! There was a team doing optical illusion. Rent a bike! that's the way to explore CPH best.

    Prague Things to Do

    The so called castle of Prague is a very interesting quarter, with historic buildings and squares, where this cathedral assumes the most relevant position. Showing several styles, denouncing the many adding and recuperation, in its more than 600 years, this cathedral deserves much more time than the quick look that I could have. That's one of the...

    Prague Restaurants

    This historic beer hall is featured in many tour guides as one of Prague's top attractions. Perhaps for that reason I was a bit afraid of walking into a tourist trap, but U Fleku is actually much more than that! Dating back to 1499, it is believed to be the city's oldest brewery. They brew only one type of beer, a flavourful dark lager, which...

    Mc Donalds nener had any chance in Greece, we have so many better fast food options (nothing can beat a good souvlaki) that it makes no sense to visit the famous Mc Donalds.

    I took my girlfriend there last night and the place looked very nice, but the chicken dish I ordered tasted like it was made 2 days ago!! I almost broke my plate when I was trying to cut it in eatable pieces. When the bill came and I mentioned the waiter about it, all he said was: ´I don´t make the food here´ and did not offer to compensate it in...

    I first visited Florence in 2006 and ate at Za/'Za because, according to my guidebook, this trattoria was one of the best for value. And I have to say I agreed. I always passed it on my way back to my hotel, and every time I did so it was full of both visitors and (more importantly) Italians. The latter is my point-of-judgement; if the locals use...
