We frequently use them as a reference, but ask the common traveller to list you the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and they might do well to tick off three…
How well do you know them? Taj Mahal? Iguazu falls? Pyramid of Giza? Well, you’re right….kind of: these three all appear in separate lists.
In truth, there are several world wonders lists, and some countries even have their own ‘wonders’ list.
To clarify things we’ve decided to make a rundown of the three most important ‘World Wonders’ lists:
The New 7 Wonders, the Ancient World Wonders, and the Seven Wonders of Nature. Be prepared to be blown away!
As a follow-up to our Top Berlin blogs : a tale of two cities, we’ve asked our bloggers to provide some great insiders tips for an unforgettable trip to Berlin!
With Gaudí’s colourful designs on almost every street corner, exploring Barcelona is like walking through a work of art. Although Gaudí is without doubt one of the most famous Spanish artists, there’s a lot more to discover and enjoy. I was lucky enough to visit Barcelona myself and I love to share amazing things – so join me on a short introductory trip around the city’s best museums.
Spain’s capital is naturally one of the country’s most expensive cities. It doesn’t take a great deal of imagination to expect that you can easily spend a fortune here if you’re not careful. That said, the best things in life are still free, right?
While it’s true that Madrid can’t offer as many free museums as London can, there are still plenty of tasty attractions that can help to spare your pockets….if you know where to look for them.
The city of light and love has so much to offer, it boggles the mind. Proposing at the Eiffel Tower, shopping on the Champs-Elysées, or enjoying some Haute Cuisine in a Seineside restaurant; Paris will keep you occupied for several lifetimes.
This alphabetical introduction, courtesy of Eva, is not enough to cover all of Paris’ beauty, but it will give you some insight and ideas for your next trip to France.
Arc de Triomphe
At the western end of the renowned Champs Elysées you’ll find one of Paris’ most famous monuments, the Arc de Triomphe. With its impressive 50m height, this arch is one of the largest in the world. Don’t risk your life crossing the Place Charles de Gaulle (one of the busiest roundabouts in Paris), but instead take the ‘passerelle’ tunnel to have a closer look at the inscriptions on the arch and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, or to admire the stunning view of the Eiffel Tower and Grande Arche.
Euro 2012 is almost upon us! Poland and Ukraine will host one of the most exciting sports events this year between 8th June and 1st July. Major cities such as Warsaw and Kiev are popular tourist destinations, but not so many tourists have wandered the streets of cities like Kharkiv and Lviv. Luckily, this summer we can discover (or rediscover) Poland and Ukraine, with the matches spread over the two countries. To make it a bit easier to find accommodation, we’ve made a selection of great hotels to stay in whilst supporting your team!
Most tourists coming to Netherlands have Amsterdam at the top of their list. Many have Amsterdam as the only thing on their list. True, there’s loads to see in Amsterdam, but there’s also plenty of attractions just outside the city. These hidden gems are often no more than an hour away and can easily be seen and enjoyed in a day.
Just as running water doesn’t become stagnant, change keeps us fresh and invigorated. We’ve presented our site with the same design for long enough; it’s time we changed it up a little.
The point is not only to make it look more attractive for you as a user, but also to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. No matter what type of traveller you are, we want it to be simple and even fun to find the hotel that suits you best.
15th April this year marks the centenary of the Titanic’s maiden and only voyage. One hundred years ago the RMS Titanic set off from Southampton to New York. After only five days, disaster struck and the ‘Unsinkable’ ship hit an iceberg. 1,514 lives were lost, making it one of the deadliest peacetime marine disasters in history. It’s a story that most of us heard or read about, but there’s more below the surface…
The French are proud of their cultural heritage – and they have something of a right to be. Paris is the second city in the world in numbers of museums and the range is wide; from art to literature, from science to history…even a hunting museum: nothing is too unusual for Parisians. Join us on a guided tour through a selection of Paris’ finest museums.
