Rome - Angels and Demons - the best way to see it is with the rush of a Hollywood movie ! Rome is best seen on an Angels and Demons tour, having first refreshed your memory by watching the Ron Howard film of the Dan Brown book once again before you go. Sadly Tom Hanks will not be running around...

ROME guide and bus tour It was not built in a day and you will not see everything in a day. My guess is you will never see my favourite church! Not that I am into churches but the one in September XII near the Termini takes some beating. If you are having a weekend break then take a look...

Copenhagen Guide, Denmark's Capital Where the best tour is free ! Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid, not Disney's When arriving in Copenhagen many people hear about or want to see the Little Mermaid statue, but it is not near the old town and a bit of a trot from your cruise ship.

In Bruges, eat chocolate, see the film. Chocolates and Happiness Yes those roses are all made of chocolate. So is EVERYTHING else. Gino says, "you can't buy happiness, but you can buy chocolate!" He should have been the 5th Beatle. I interviewed Gino at the end of the day and sadly the equipment was as tired as I and the batteries went...

Hop On, Hop Off ! Is it worth it ? There are some tips, like in the Azores, the trip is a short round one hour bus ride, no getting off, so do it last in the day, no queue and you get the bus to yourself. In general, if you are on a cruise you only have six or seven...
It is so easy to get away Out of school holidays, there are often mid-week deals to fly to Malaga, Barcelona or many other places like Rome. Time to grab a few days away.
