800 N Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA
Union Station is as stunning as it is rich in history, and continues to be a vital hub for L.A. rail, metro, and bus transport. On the outside, the building resembles an art deco riff on the old California missions; inside, the inlaid travertine...

Kratovo, Macedonia (FYROM)

48 Rue Saint-Antoine, 75004 Paris, France
The Marias- and the Place de Vosges in particular- is my favorite place to get lost in Paris. Due to the sporadic curves or lengths of the small streets in this neighborhood, you need to just let the city take you in and know that you'll be wowed...

Sintra is every storybook fairy tale that you've ever seen or imagined, brought to life. After a 45-minute train ride from Lisbon, you are transported to a land of times past: an entire city in the hills filled with castles, moats, palaces,...
Alzaia Naviglio Grande, 34, 20144 Milano MI, Italy
While few in number, Milan's canals can be charming. Naviglio Grande, the largest, is my favorite to walk along. Lined by shops, outdoor cafes and bars, there is life alongside the water anytime of day. If you're lucky you'll catch the Antique...
8355 Giethoorn, Netherlands
Renting a boat in Giethoorn is a great experience, they go pretty slow so you can enjoy the place, take photos and just take it all in. The owners must be used to the tourists staring at the beauty of their homes so they act like there is nobody...
Greve in Chianti, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy
If you find yourself on a road trip from Florence into the Tuscan countryside, take the Chianti road and stop for lunch or a stroll in Greve in Chianti. The town square often hosts a market—we were there on the flower market day—and houses a Museo...
Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany
The vibrant colour on the old style architecture in the town of Rothenburg was gorgeous even against a dreary grey sky. Whilst only November when I visited, the feel of Christmas was already in the air. To walk the cobblestone streets and stop at...

Vicolo dei Sinibaldi, 2, 00100 Roma RM, Italy
I had been to Rome years earlier and I was looking forward to returning, primarily for the food. On our first night we decided to escape the crowded plazas in favor of Vecchia Locanda, off an alleyway near the Pantheon. I believe we all had pasta,...
Place Stanislas, 54300 Croismare, France
One of my favorite cities in France is Nancy. Other than the outstanding Place Stanislas, which is France's most beautiful square, the city is also a center for the art nouveau period with many buildings scattered around the city as well as the...
Westminster, London SW1A 0AA, UK
This iconic landmark in London is popular for a reason...it's breathtaking! Did you know that Big Ben is the name of the bell inside the tower, not the clock? While you are there, check out the Houses of Parliament (if they are in session)....

We ended our Edinburgh trip, suitably, at The Last Drop, which is in the heart of the Grassmarket. According to our host, The Last Drop is where prisoners would go to get their last drink of whiskey prior to being executed. From grassmarket.net:...
PTE Luiz I, 4000 Porto, Portugal
Dom Luis bridge in Porto was designed by the man responsible for the Eiffel Tower, and is the subject of many a travel photo. You can walk across it on two levels but I'd recommend taking the top level from Porto to the port wine cellars of Vila...
Place Massena, Nice, France
The popular shopping center in Nice is at the Place Massena. You will know you arrived there when you stepped on the checkered tiles. From there, you can explore the near by streets for more stores as well. The better part is that the tram goes...

Giudecca, 10, 30133 Venezia VE, Italy
Travelers come to Cips Club to enjoy dinner with a striking view of Venice and Piazza San Marco in the distance. And dinner, when you can secure a table here, is very good. Again, much of that has to do with the view. I prefer Cips Club for fancy...
