    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...

    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...

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

    I took an art history course in college (to fill a requirement) and while I gained an appreciation for many artists, I never cared for Gaudi. I was a college student, so whimsy was not beneath me, but I just didn't get it. I intended to go to Park Güell while in Barcelona, but this attraction was not on my radar. The concierge at my hotel strongly...

    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...

    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...

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. It's pretty full when we arrive at about 7pm ...must be packed during summer. It turns out to be pretty good. Lots to choose from...

    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...

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...

    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...

Boxties are the invention of Pádraic Óg Gallagher, a noted expert on potatoes (really).

    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...

    London Things to Do

    With some 2.7 million visitors in 2015, the Tower of London is the most visited paid for attraction in the UK. It goes without saying therefore that a bit of planning before going there will help the visit go more smoothly. Timing is always important of course but with a steep entry price of £25 to get in for a full adult fare (Apr 2016), it pays...

    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...

    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...
