    Rome Things to Do

    This is a large square in Rome at one of the sides of Via del Corso(the other one is Piazza del Popolo). The name of the square comes from the name of the palace nearby: Palazzo Venezia, that has that name because it was the venetian embassy. Of all the roman popular squares this is the one I like less. It is the celebration of national pride, war...

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....

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Barcelona Things to Do

    I`ve never liked modern cathedrals, but this one is absolutely stunning! It is really like a forest. but full of colourful lights, giant trees-columns and thousands of beautiful little decorative details, which catch your eye everywhere. And regardless the crowd, which is always there, you would want to sit and enjoy the solemn and peaceful vibe.

    The main attraction in London. It is not cheap, especially compared to free museums, but it offers an amazing experience and literally trip to London`s past. There are a lot to see, do not even think about spending there less than 2 hours. Do not miss Crown Jewels and the gorgeous ravens of Tower, which keep the British Monarchy. Be careful with...

    London Restaurants

    Last visit January 2008 I've eaten at Belgo several times, on my most recent visit it wasn't very crowded at lunch on a Monday. The restaurant is located in a rather funky basement, seating is at long communal tables and the noise level is loud when it's busy. If it hadn't been listed in virtually every guidebook I might have thought twice but...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Venice Things to Do

    I know it is not cheap, but still I strongly recommend you to visit it, because it is absolutely fantastic. The building is gorgeous and you will enjoy it as much as the painting gallery. And they have four paintings of Bosch, art-lovers know how rare it is. I would consider my visit of Venice incomplete without Palazzo Ducale.

    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...

A classic, historic and wonderful place to visit...just the desserts alone make this a "must-see"...

    "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...

    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...

    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...
