  • Angelina

    4 out of 5 stars

    Paris Restaurants

    Angelina is best described as a Salon de Thé and is well know for their hot chocolate and their Mont Blanc dessert. There are several locations in Paris as well as one at Versailles but I prefer the Tuileries location. I love the atmosphere and décor of this place;which is reminiscent of an era gone by; when women frequented tea rooms socially as...

    The Odd Room is an easy going restaurant, with good food and friendly waiters who even did their best to explain the menu to me in English. Plain furniture, wooden tables and bar stools. I sat close to the front door, but there are also benches at the back for couples in search of a little more privacy. I had a three course menu: bruschettone, some...

    Barcelona Things to Do

    A lot of the current construction work is happening inside so its a bit of a building site, but in a way it is interesting to be able to watch a bit of it happening. The columns inside are another example of Gaudi being influenced by nature as they are designed like trees with a long trunk and then thick branches at the top. My favourite thing...

    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...

    Athens abounds with hills, and many are so barren they surge upwards and unpopulated out of the cityscape. Of all these hills, the standout is Mount Lycabettus, rising like a limestone fist from below. Its base is think with pine forest, and at its summit stands the whitewashed chapel of Saint George. The twin peaks at the top of Mount Lycabettus...

    Athens Restaurants

    There are many souvlaki/kebab places around Monastiraki square and they are always packed with people, mostly tourists of course because of the location (4’ walk from Acropolis main entrance. The main problem is that these eateries focus on these customers and not locals that will return if they are satisfied with food and service. But a friend...

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Nyhavn (New Harbour) is undoubtedly Copenhagen's most picturesque corner: a line of colourful houses, higgledy-piggledy built next to some quais where only vintage ships are allowed to moor. Moreover, there are plenty of restaurants and bars so that the area is not for nothing called Copenhagen's longest bar. Nyhavn was built from 1671 to 1673 to...

    Vienna Things to Do

    Schonbrunn Palace and Gardens were built in a manner to compare to Versailles in France, Maria-Theresa came close. The Palace and Gardens are stunning. First, easy to get to on the U4 line with it's own stop. After getting out of the metro it's a 3 minute walk to the gates and ticket office ... just follow the signs or crowds. Either way you can't...

    So the story is this place had the original Sacher Torte cake, and somehow it got into the hands of the Sacher hotel and bakery. Who know's ?!?!? The place is an old world traditional cafe. As for the cake here ... it was awful ... extremely dry, and the chocolate had no flavoring. The coffee was good, I will admit that. We were there around...

    Whilst doing some tip grouping in early March 2015 I came upon the following piece of information which may be of benefit to the traveller. Bewley's coffee shop on Grafton Street has been closed and will remain so until Autumn 2015 when it will re-open on the ground floor only with the upstairs seating area shut. Whilst I am more of a pub man than...

    London Things to Do

    A piece of trivia learned from our Yeoman Warder guided tour: Charles II believed "If the ravens leave the Tower, the kingdom will fall…", and so, even today, seven ravens are kept at the Tower (the required six plus one spare!), looked after by the Yeoman Raven Master, and his assistants. Their lodgings are to be found next to the Wakefield...

    Work on the new cathedral, begun in 1296, was interrupted in 1302 when Arnolfo di Cambio died. His place as masterbuilder was taken by Giotto, in 1334. Due to a social situation and certain natural calamities, the construction of the cathedral slowed down. After Giotto's death, in 1337, Andrea Pisano, Francesco Talenti and Giovanni di Lapo Ghini...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Gamla Stan is the historic heart of Stockholm. It’s made up of three islands - Helgeandsholmen, Riddarholmen and Stadsholmen - but it’s Stadsholmen, the largest, that people usually think of when they talk about Gamla Stan. Gamla Stan means ‘Old Town’ and there’s everything here that you would expect from an Old Town - narrow streets, historical...
