The city is literally in the valley of a circle of mountains. Almost each time you look up you are bound to see the peak of a snow-capped mountain. Its a small city in which you can travel around by bus and tram. The Sightseer bus is especially useful for tourists to get to the main attractions around Innsbruck. You can take a train or a tram up to Hungerburg mountain which has a great view of the valley where the city resides.The food was good, the hot chocolate great!
So far Innsbruck has been the loveliest stay of all despite the fact that I got a bit sick in the middle and had to sleep in half a day. It was peaceful and relaxing here.
Wonderful Praha! It’s like stepping into a fairy tale and walking around the streets of Far Far away from the Shrek movie. Most of it’s earliest architecture has been kept the same including the cobblestone streets and roads. It really gives the city a charming medivial quality. There is lots to do in Prague- city tours, castles to explore, parks and gardens, concerts, craft workshops, museums, etc… If nothing else you can just meander the streets and take in the sights and enjoy the many cafes and restaurants along the way. I will definitely be coming back here for my next trip!
Florence was quaint and pretty. We took a best of tuscany tour which brought us to Sienna, San Gimignano and Pisa. We saw wonderful countryside, medivial towns, vineyards and of course the ever famous leaning tower of Pisa. The architecture was ancient and beautifully preserved in these places. Of course the food was epic in Italy. I totally had my fill of pastas and pizzas.
The ancient ruins such as the Coloseum and Roman Forum was mesmerising. The tour guide’s stories really brought me back to those days giving me an idea of how they lived. Rome has preserved its pieces of history very beautifully right in the midst of their urban living. The streets of Rome are filled with amazing ancient architecture and monuments here and there. It was amazing to walk along and suddenly find a fountain or a monument or beautiful church just in front. Lovely time in Rome.
3days in Paris and I personally felt it was enough to cover the main parts of the city. The area we stayed in, Gare du Nord, was a pretty nice place and centrally located. It’s the little india of Paris and had really good Indian food.
Zurich was beautiful! And clean and convenient and safe. It was so easy travelling around by their trains. We visited Mount Titlis and it was snowing! It was -10degees celcius at the top… was so cold but fun to be in the snow…
Next up, Florence and Rome.
