  • 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...

  • Angelina

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

    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. One of the most popular tourist attractions in England, it is according to paranormal experts the most haunted location in the world. The Tower holds the royal gems because it's still one of the royal palaces,...

  • Hard Rock Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    London Restaurants

    The first Hard Rock Cafe was opened in Old Park Lane in June 1971, with food normally on the menu at an American Diner with Rock and Roll music playing while you ate. Eric Clapton donated his Fender Guitar so he could reserve a seat at the bar and occasionally rock stars can be seen jamming here. The cafe has a very expensive collection of Rock...

    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...

  • Les Quinze Nits

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Barcelona Restaurants

    March 2014. Very surly waiter and, at times, quite rude. Extremely miserable Maître d who also, I might add, had the endearing habit of rolling his eyes whenever you asked for anything! We had to ask for a glass in order to drink our beer – twice! – then once the glasses eventually arrived, we had to ask for a clean one!. Again, had to ask for...

    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...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Rome Restaurants

    This was our first trip to Rome and while there Hubby and I would be celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary. So we wanted to a nice place to eat for our special day. We aren’t the types to dress up fancy (heels just don’t work on the streets of Rome!), but we wanted a place that we could be assured of a good meal, rather than take our chances....

    4 out of 5 stars

    Amsterdam Things to Do

    I always found it droll travelers who are whisking their way across Europe and barely spend two days in Amsterdam. Sure there are a lot of strange smells but the Dutch are very pragmatic and welcoming to their masses of visitors. Take the VVV. I was benefited from this well run government outfit for lodging, maps, and information about the local...

  • FEBO

    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...

    Venice Things to Do

    From the outside it is beautiful, but from the inside even more. To visit it I would by tickets on their website upfront. Especially in summer peak season you'll find a big row of people waiting to buy a ticket and it spoils you time and may be you day visit in Venice. I would visit Venice in the spring or autumn period it is less hot and there...

    SAN MARCO My last night in Venice - the last night of my Holiday, and I was in Piazza San Marco. The crowds had left - pigeons paddling in the water from that afternoons Aqua Alta outnumbered the humans, music played by the cafe musicians drifted over the square. Bother the expense!, I wanted to sit in Piazza San Marco, at one of Venices most...

  • Charles Bridge

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Prague Things to Do

    Don't worry about location, accesses or anything else concerning this bridge. "All the roads lead to Rome" except here: all the streets and people seem to converge to this wonderful bridge, where statues mix with living artists. Built in the end of the 14th century, it was, until 1841 the only way to cross the Vltava river. Protected by towers...

  • U Fleku

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • 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...

  • Gerbeaud House

    4 out of 5 stars

    Budapest Restaurants

    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...

    Vienna Things to Do

    Visit to Schonbrunn is main attraction in touristic program all touristic arrangements from Balkan area. That was for me too, because that was the way I visit Vienna for first time. That excursion cost 20 euros and including transport with touristic bus (in mine case from Bratislava), visit Schonbrunn palace and park with tour guide on native...

  • Grinzing & Heurigen

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Vienna Restaurants

    The main reason to go there is the view witch is simply great, you sit in the middle of vineyards see the Danube and parts of Vienna, best to go there on a nice summer day. The food is the usual Heurigen food bread spreads like Liptauer (cheese), faschierte Laibchen (minced meat patties), roast pork. The wine is made (as usual with Heurige) by the...

    Stockholm Things to Do

    Just as I wrote about the other free tour – the City tour, this is a free experience. You don’t have to pay anything, or book anything. But you are welcome to tip the guide if you liked the tour. Very clever: there is no way anyone can make you declare your income made through tips and pay those huge Swedish taxes. And these folks are worth it,...

  • Kungshallen

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Stockholm Restaurants

    Kungshallen includes many different kind of restaurants and it takes time and check them out. You have food in Kungshallen from all over the world, and I would say that is the most difficult thing to choose and decide what your stomache will get. I tried some Lebanese saugages and they were great. Really delicious and the meat was lamb. Perfectly...

    Kilmainham Jail or Kilmainham Gaol as it is known in Ireland is a former prison where the main rebellious leaders of the Irish Revolution were incarcerated. There is a small museum where you can look at various artefacts from people who were imprisoned. Unfortunately you are not allowed to wonder around the prison on your own, you must take a group...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dublin Restaurants

    Fish & Chips... if you want to experience what Dubliners have been eating for years on end, check out Leo Burdocks in Werberg Street. This is a landmark where there is always a queue and well worth the wait. It's a take away which means basically no sitting down. However if you go towards Christ Church and on the left of that you will find a small...

    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...

    This is a must do when near the monastery in Belem …. the line goes quick … the price is 1.30 euro for each pastel de nata …. and boy are they worth it ….. we first bought 1 each and sat down across the street in a park to have it … one bite and we knew we were going back for more … we ended buying another dozen …. they are soooooooo good !!!!!!...

    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...

    Brussels Things to Do

    Does it say something about Brussels that arguably its main attraction is the small statue of a boy peeing into a basin? He's certainly become an institution - even spawning imitations (the peeing girl is a poor substitute). Many legends and traditions have grown up since the statues installation in the 17th century. The legends are mostly...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Brussels Restaurants

    There are a whole lot of seafood restaurants on the Quai aux Briques and we chose this one because it has a nice 3 course lunch menu for 23 euro. The restaurant overlooks a lovely square flanked by the St. Catherine's church. The metro stop is about 50 metres away and the Grand Place perhaps 10 minute walk. On a sunny day, it is wonderful to enjoy...
