    Paris Things to Do

    Last visit May 2016 Although my favorite art museum in Paris (and perhaps the world) is the Musee d'Orsay, a visit to the Louvre, even for a short bit, is a must see in Paris. The Louvre is a very, very large place and it is quite useful to sit down with the map and figure out where you are going. The massive building now housing the art...

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...

    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...

    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...

    Good old cool Bad Ass transformed in the autumn 2011. The refurbishment gone wrong and originality lost. With that unfortunately the food didn't improve. Used to be a customer in the past and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. However after trying the new-old I will not come back. Any other pub will give you better food and better atmosphere. There...

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...

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...

    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...

    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...
