Do you say Seville or Sevilla? Italy or Italia?

The habit of trying to sound „international“ and using a foreign placename while speaking English is super-annoying - and mega-american. Calling Munich by that name when speaking English is not wrong - that’s its name in English. Same for using Italy, Seville, Bejing... See More

Austria: Christmas in Austria

Hrmm ... quaint....means different things to different people. Quite a lot of the alpine wonderland most people think of when they think of Austria​is full of ski tourists from all over Europe at Christmas. If you are one of them, and want to go where... See More

Munich: Planning 4 days vacation from Munich

Renting a car is easy enough, and on the weekends, not expensive, but trains are more relaxing and ubiquitously available. From Munich​ to Munich Hauptbahnhof (Main Station), just take the BOB (Bayrische Oberlandbahn​)... See More

Italy: Choice between 2 itineraries

Broadly speaking, this is a choice between a visit to a kind of large area of northern and central Italy, and a second trip to Naples​.  The north of Italy is very different than the south. Both are great. If you are American- the Italy you know from... See More

Munich: What are the most popular neighborhoods in Munich?

Hi Luiza - Lots of answers here....Munich​ is a big city, but getting around is very easy, as long as you don't drive. Driving is not as bad as many people say, but its a hassle to park, you don't really know where you are going, and because Munich's... See More

Munich: Family things to do & private tour guide suggestion in Munich?

Private tour guides...hrmm...Mike's Bike Tours​ is a popular option, but I doubt the 4 year old could keep up. In addition - the groups appear to be mostly flip-flop-wearing college kids, who are mostly keen on drinking lots of beer in the beergardens.... See More

Lake Garda: Best city to base to explore Lake Garda, Lake Como, and Lake Iseo?

Sirmione​ is a beautiful place - it has the narrow alleys, a unique geography and the architecture one would want, along with views of the water and little piazzas where one could, in theory, comfortably drink an espresso or an aperol spritz. In theory.... See More

Munich: What is your favorite restaurant in Munich?

My regular hang-out is Gaststätte FAUN​, Hans-Sachs-Str.... it is not too big, has communal tables as is traditional in Germany, the decor is unbelievable art-deco and the menu has traditional bavarian favorites paired with International fare and even... See More
