  • Eiffel Tower

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Paris Things to Do

    loads of information has been written on it, here and elsewhere. It is the international recognisable symbol of France ,and tops for visitors with over 7 millions visiting every year.

    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...

  • Red Light District - De Wallen

    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...

  • 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...

    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....

    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...

    That was what my daughter and son-in-law said when we showed them the photos of this place. I was determine to see this church - so much so that when the lines for the hop on-hop off buses were EXTREMELY long, I got impatient and I walked across to the taxi line and got in a cab. My grandson was still in line and wasn't paying attention to what I...

    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...

    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.

    RIZ Raz We find this hotel in our guide book and decide to give it a try. It's a vegetable only buffet.....for about $20.00 . it located just off the pedestrian street and about 20 minute or less from our hotel.

    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 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 comes close...

    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).

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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.

  • 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...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Florence Restaurants

    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...
