    The Eiffel Tower is the most famous monument in the world, with over 7 million visitors a year it is the most visited monument that you have to pay for in the world.

    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...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Amsterdam Things to Do

    We visited the Red Light district out of curiosity rather than for 'business' and having previously been here a few years ago, I'd say it isn't what it used to be. A lot of the stalls are empty or up for rent and in all we only saw about 3 or 4 girls in the windows. As for taking not taking photos, there were lots of people taking shots with...

    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...

    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....

    London Things to Do

    In the old days, this building should impress by its size and strength. Nowadays, surrounded by the high monsters of modernity, it is only an historic curiosity. It surely deserves a visit, and inside, you will feel back that sensation of power and domination. The only thing that may become boring is the long visit to the huge collection of...

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...

    The Segrada Familia is a stunning piece of architecture and a must-see for any visitor to Barcelona. Booking in advance is advisable, plan to go early before the crowds build. It's easy to book on-line, print off your entry bar-code and jump the queues! I took the wrong bit of the e-mail confirmation, but the staff were very helpful and found my...

    Budapest Things to Do

    The term "bastion" made me first believe that I would see a military fortification. There is nothing like that "the Fisherman's Bastion - Halászbástya " looks like a fairytale castle. This may explain its success among tourists. Now if you fear to see here on the Buda hill something like the Castle of Sleeping Beauty at Disneyland set your mind at...

The South Tower is the tallest at 137 metres high, and you must climb 343 steps to reach the Türmer Stube near the top. If you want to do this, the...

We met up with one of LJ's friends (from when she used to live here) and headed to Demel for lunch/dessert.

    "Ponte" is the Italian word for "Bridge", and "Vecchio" is the Italian word for "old". The Ponte Vecchio, or the Old Bridge was for a long time, until 1218, the only bridge which crossed the Arno River. But there are now six bridges in Firenze (Florence). None of the other bridges have the fame of the Ponte Vecchio. A devastating flood in 1345...

    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...

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...
