After our Top Paris Blogs blogpost we decided to contact some of the bloggers we mentioned and we sent them a small questionnaire about Paris. Our goal? To create a small “insiders guide” to Paris and to give to all our readers the possibility to get some useful info about Paris.
As I said, we sent 10 questions to the Parisian bloggers to get a better idea of what to do, what to see and how to enjoy the capital of France. The bloggers that kindly replied to us are the following:
- Eric from Paris Daily Photo
- Jean-Claude from Hello Paris
- Amy from God I Love Paris
- Adam from Invisible Paris
- Rachele from Altra Paris
- Richard from Eye Prefer Paris
- Doni from Girls Guide to Paris
- Kathrin from Paris Reise
- Marie Simon from Inside Paris
And now let’s see the questions we sent them and how the bloggers replied!
All roads lead to Rome – this saying explains in one sentence how magnificent, fantastic and awe-inspiring is the Italian capital, Rome! The Eternal City is one of the biggest cities in Italy and Europe and is, for sure, one of the most historical attractions in the whole world. Rome was once the capital of the whole world and it is still possible to find evidence of the city’s glorious past.
We already published our A to Z about Rome, but today we want to give you some useful links to blogs dedicated to this amazing city to help you out find more information. Like we did with the top Paris blogs, we’ll give you a valid list of blogs where you can find tips from the locals and fresh news about Rome. Of course, talking about Italy, most of these blogs are about food…so, if you are a food addict, you can’t miss them!
Here we are folks, time for another contest! Due to the incredible success of our last contest we have decided to find another hotel in Barcelona to give away and thanks to the Hotel Barcelona Universal this is now possible!
The Hotel Barcelona Universal is one of our top hotels in Barcelona, located just 5 minutes away from the famous ‘Las Ramblas’, the heart of Barcelona. The prize is a 2-night stay in this amazing hotel, including breakfast and access to the rooftop swimming pool!
The Big Apple, New York City, is well known throughout the world for its skyscrapers, its shops, the unique atmosphere of its neighborhoods, from Manhattan to the Bronx, from Brooklyn to Queens, for the shows on Broadway, and for the thousands of movies shot in its streets.
Yeah yeah yeah….but New York is also home to some of the most amazing museums, from the MoMa to the Guggenheim Museum. Of course, if you have enough time, it’s worth visiting all the New York museums, but if you are in New York City just for few days, we would like, with this article, to help you to decide where to go and what to see.
American Museum of Natural History
Let’s start with one of the most famous museums in NYC, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). It’s located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan on one side of Central Park and is one of the largest museums in the world. The AMNH comprises 25 buildings for a total of 46 permanent exhibition halls. The collections contain over 32 million examples of taxidermy, fossils, gems, and natural specimens of every description.
This is the time, my friends, to close our latest contest: Win a 2 nights stay in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona. Judging by the awesome response, it looks like Barcelona inspires you like no other city. Okay, maybe it was also because the prize this time, thanks to the Hotel Diagonal Zero, was amazing, but you definitely surprised us with more than 300 comments on our blog and more than 300 comments on our Facebook page.
This time it was really hard to pick the winner. After a few days digging through all your comments I realised that I needed help, so I asked my colleagues at easytobook.com to vote for their favourite comment.
Milan is one of the most important cities in Italy and is also very well known as “Milano da bere” – Milan to drink – because of the crazy amount of bars and pubs in the city.
If you are going to visit Milan, to discover its real soul, you have to see and to enjoy its aperitivo: Happy Hour.
Every day, after office hours, many Milanese bars offer you the opportunity to appreciate and participate in the ritual of aperitivo. Bars usually charge a fixed fee for drinks, which is around 5 Euros for a beer (pint) and from 7 to 10 Euros for a cocktail, but during the happy hour (which is actually more like 3 0r 4 hours) the bars set up a buffet, with all kinds of food, where the guests can take whatever they want without any additional costs. So, if you think that the price of the drinks is expensive, bear in mind that you can actually get a dinner for free!
If there’s a city that better than any other is able to inspire lovers, chefs, and photographers, it’s Paris! The capital of France, with its museums, restaurants and cafe’s, is one of the most visited cities in the world.
One of the biggest problems that people will face when planning a trip to Paris is choosing what to do. To help you out with finding inspiration and useful tips we have already given you plenty of info about Paris, but this time we want to do more!
We want to show you some of the blogs and websites that we found on the Internet and think are a very good resource to find info about Paris. It doesn’t matter if you are Italian or Spanish, a geek or a couple in search of the most romantic restaurant, in this list you will find all the info you need for an amazing holiday in Paris!
From time to time I’m quite sure that you, like me, are just surfing the Internet trying to find some inspiration for your next trip; perhaps you’re looking for something that can leave you speechless, breathless, and completely astonished.
Some travelers base their decision on a friend’s experience, some of them search for images in Google to find something interesting, some may browse the travel blogs. My chosen method, however, is to search for amazing videos on YouTube and to draw inspiration from there. Having some experience in this, I really would love to share with you these fantastic videos about some destinations I think you shouldn’t miss.
All of these videos are made using a technique called ‘Time-Lapse’: recording whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that which will be used to play the sequence back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster (and thus lapsing). Okay, this is the theory; let’s enjoy the videos now!
This contest is now closed; please stay tuned for other info and contests!
August is over, and for our latest contest: Win a 2 nights stay in Madrid with 1 ‘like’, it is time to announce the winner:
Congratulations Lena Stein!
Lena, we will contact you soon to inform you about all the details.
Now let’s get back to business, especially for all of you that are not as lucky as Lena this time… No biggie, we have yet another awesome contest for you!

Just sleeping 2 nights in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona could be enough, but thanks to the Diagonal Zero we are able to offer you a prize that you will never forget!
With its 165 canals, Amsterdam is famous for its relationship with the water. If you then combine this with another popular facet of the city – its craziness – then you get an amazing collection of fun stuff happening on (and in) the canals.
The Gay Pride Parade
Evey year, on the first weekend of August, Prinsengracht (one of the main historical canals of Amsterdam) hosts the Gay Pride Parade, also known as Canal Parade Amsterdam. During the day the canal is full of all kinds of boats, from the official boat of the Amsterdam municipality to the S&M boat…
