    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.

    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...

    Unfortunately, when the time we visited the famous Trevi Fountain, it is in the midst of Renovation (may 2015) and I found out that the renovation will be finished by autumn of 2015. They have made a temporary walkway along the fountain where you can line up and go to the middle of the fountain and can still throw your coins (the famous myth that...

    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....

    The Crown Jewels were originally kept in Westminster Abbey but after they were stolen in 1303 they were moved to the Tower of London. Although they were recovered, most of them didn’t survive Oliver Cromwell’s Commonwealth. After Charles I’s execution, Cromwell ordered all the treasure to be “totally broken, and that they melt down all the gold...

    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...

    SAN MARCO My last night in Venice - the last night of my Holiday, and I was in Piazza San Marco.

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    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.

  • Nyhavn

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Copenhagen Restaurants

    As in every European city of this size everybody can easily find the suitable restaurant for his/her preferences and taste. And the genuine Danish food must not be missed!! What is less easy in Copenhagen to find the ones fitting to the wallets of a big part of its visitors - Copenhagen is an expensive place.

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Vienna Things to Do

    I found St Stephan’s Dom (Cathedral) one of the most spectacular Cathedrals of our entire trip of Europe. Opened in 1160, it must be one of the oldest. I just love the amount of history. Outside, I most love the mosaic tiled roof. I also loved the enormous pipe organs inside. The height of the cathedral is 137 mts. For me, only Cologne Cathedral...

    4 out of 5 stars

    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"...

    Budapest Things to Do

    As part of our Cruise activities, we had a 1h10 min stop on the Buda side of Budapest at Fisherman’s Bastion and St Mathias Church near Buda Castle. (going inside churches was normally never included – they were for us to decide or not to see inside, providing we had enough free time to consider it, which in this case we didn't really).

    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...

    Prague Things to Do

    When the sun's shining, Charles Bridge explodes into its most vibrant persona with its buskers, artists and craft sellers crowding into every available space on both sides of the pedestrian-only roadway. The standard, and variety, of the performers, artists and artisans is exceptional. On any given day the musical offerings can range from operatic...

  • 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...

    There are seven hills in Athens, the Acropolis is the most famous but Lycabettus is the tallest one. Oh, what sweet memories I have from this hill!

You can climp the stairs and follow the...

    Athens Restaurants

    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. There are even local similar places that offer the same food with McDonalds (burgers, salads, etc) but with much better quality (eg Goodys that use local products and have...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Florence Restaurants

    In Italy, you do not really leave a tip. If you choose to do so, it's a matter of rounding up a euro or two at the most. Most restaurants basically collect a "tip" in their cover charge which could be a "using table" charge or by charging you for the bread they bring to the table. Some restaurants flat out have a convenience charge of €5.00.
