Save Place
18 Parnell Square N, Rotunda, Dublin, D01 T3V8, Ireland
Sure, you fall in love with Paris through the literature about the city—Hemingway immortalized Paris, F. Scott Fitzgerald spent time there and so did James Joyce. However you can do the same with Ireland. JJ is still beloved in his native...
Save Place
37 Rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 Paris, France
What traveller or aspiring travel writer has ever been to Paris and NOT stopped by George Whitman's Shakesepeare & Company, located just a stone's throw (if you have a good arm!) from the Notre Dame Cathedral? I cannot count the amount of...

21 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1EN, UK
Heading off the Royal Mile to find Greyfriar's Bobby, we passed this cafe that, by its name, I assumed was an Indian restaurant. But a closer look at the bottom of the main window stated that this was where the hero of Hogwarts was created. The...
Save Place
Lawnmarket, Lady Stair's Close, Edinburgh EH1 2PA, UK
Just off the Royal Mile after you go under an archway is the Writers Museum in Scotland's capital city. The museum honors three of the nation's finest writers - Robbie Burns, Robert L. Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott. It is well worth a visit,...

Piazza della Repubblica, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy
The Piazza Della Repubblica was the place to be in Florence in the evenings. Tourists and locals alike dined at the restaurants lining the square, student groups gathered, families enjoyed the Carousel, and gypsies and other migrants tried to sell...

Karlovo nám. 2097/10, 120 00 Praha-Nové Město, Czechia
One of the best things about Prague is the fact that there is excellent public transportation - a metro, buses and even trams. There are still many of the older ones around, which look great gliding past the 19th & 18th century buildings. Get to...
Save Place
39 Rue Descartes, 75005 Paris, France
Walking through Paris is joy but, on the last trip I did my best to walk the steps of Hemingway, Fitzgerald and others of the "Lost Generation". La Maison de Verlaine is now an upscale eatery in the Latin Quarter but just above is Paul Verlaine's...
Save Place
6 Place Saint-Germain des Prés, 75006 Paris, France
One part tourist trap, one part beloved café, Les Deux Magots is a legendary spot that everyone should visit at least once when in Paris. Most famous as the place where the likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and Ernest Hemingway...
Save Place
2, Via Chiaia, 1, 80132 Napoli NA, Italy
There are few things I am addicted to; One of them is Coffee. Where ever I travel, I look for a good place to drink my daily cup(s) of coffee. I’ve heard about Caffe Gambrinus before but preferred to try it out myself. The place is known as one of...
Save Place
Nomikos Street, Oía 847 02, Greece
Nestled along the main stone walkway through the village of Oia is the charming Atlantis Books, a shop with both the adventurous spirit of a traveler and heart of a dear friend. Created and run by traveling friends, and even staffed by some...
Save Place
Located in Copenhagen, where Hans Christian Andersen called home for many years, sits a tribute to one of his greatest literary works: The Little Mermaid. Commissioned in 1909, the Little Mermaid resides as a solitary figure on a single rock in...
Save Place
this famous Lisbon landmark has a wonderful bar and also serves a really decent lunch in the downstairs restaurant. Take the stunning little fin de siecle elevator to the upper town (it is like a mini Eiffel Tower style elevator!) and wander the...
Save Place
172 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris, France
And of course I am referring to having a coffee in Paris. The Cafe de Flore is located on Blvd Saint Germain, in the area where the likes of Hemingway, Fitzgerald and so on used to hang out and write American classical literature. If you're on a...
Save Place
312 Rue du Square Saint Louis, Montréal, QC H2X 1A5, Canada
The Carré Saint-Louis (also known as St. Louis Square) is one of Montréal's most important literary streetscapes. Famed Québecois poets Émile Nelligan and Gaston Miron called this home. Brightly painted Victorian/Second Empire graystone rowhouses...

828 Broadway, New York, NY 10003, USA
If you love books, a visit to the world-famous Strand Book store is a must when you go to New York. The store is most famous for having 18 miles of books which can be overwhelming when you first walk in but everything is super organized on all...
Save Place
Guatemala City 01010, Guatemala
Wherever you travel, it's always good to locate the nearest bookstore to your hotel. And in Guatemala, you don’t want to be caught without a book: there’s too many plazas and lush patios for you to lack some easily accessible literature at any...
Save Place
225 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10016, USA
The Morgan Library and Museum, a New York City treasure located near both Penn Station and Grand Central Station, was once the private library of financier Pierpont Morgan, one of the preeminent collectors and cultural benefactors in the United...
Save Place
Concord, MA, USA
Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy - a carer, a writer, a musician, an artist. Many girls grew up with these 'Little Women' in their minds. So did I. The creator of these literary characters rests in peace at the Sleepy Hollow in Concord. It was humbling to have...
Save Place
Lauriergracht 71, 1016 RH Amsterdam, Netherlands
Did you know that the mini-mosaic at Hazenstraat and Lauriergracht is one of 26 installed in 2000 by French urban artist Invader? Or that eccentric author Harry Mulish, considered one of the "Great Three" of Dutch postwar writers along with...
Save Place
Bath BA1 1SU, UK
Even though the renowned British author Jane Austen only lived in Bath from 1801 to 1806 and never liked it much, she is often associated with the quaint city. Bath is located just under 100 miles from London in southwest England, making for a...
Save Place
5 Rue Daunou, 75002 Paris, France
In 1911, American star jockey Tod Sloan took a bar in Manhattan, dismantled it, and shipped it to Paris. At the time, American tourists and members of the artistic and literary communities were beginning to visit the City of Light in...

Jack Kerouac Alley, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
You may not see it if you don't look beneath your feet in the bustling and bombarding crowd within San Francisco's Chinatown. Once you stumble upon Kerouac Alley past the Vital Tea shop you'll notice you are standing before a plaque dedicated to a...

4519, 261 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
A personal shrine of mine, in the basement of City Lights Bookstore. Mysteries that way-->
Save Place
248 Oakland Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312, USA
Seeing a sprawling cemetery in the middle of a city sounds like something you might find in Paris or New Orleans, but Atlanta? Oakland Cemetery is in the heart of the Cabbagetown neighborhood, where residents go jogging through its winding brick...
Save Place
Værnedamsvej 6, 1620 København, Denmark
I admit to never having paid too much attention to typography, save for trying to find a font to help my term papers reach the minimum page requirement. Courier New, with its generous line spacing, became my go-to font (three pages would magically...
