  • Views from Tibidabo

    Views from Tibidabo
    Tibidabo is one of the highest hills surrounding the city of Barcelona (512 m) and is still very close to it to have one of the greatest views over the whole city. There is also a little attraction park, but more meant for children than to adults. You have also the great church of "Sagrat Chor" dominating the hill and not far from there the Colserrola Tower and the different tv and radio networks antennas.
  • La Boqueria Market

    La Boqueria Market
    The market of "La Boqueria" is a beautiful place in the centre of Barcelona, just located on the main Ramblas, mid-way between Plaça Catalunya and the seafront. Don't be afraid to enter in this crowded place, were the merchants are yelling around to sell their products (the best, of course) and where your eyes can contemplate fish & seafood, vegetables & fruits, fresh meat and a lot of other local productions of very great quality. Sure, that gives you hunger to see all this... in this case, go until the end of the market place, and before you come out, a little bit on your right, you'll found the "Bar de la Boqueria" who serves you all you want in typical specialities of Barcelona!! If you find a seat, take it quickly, a lot of people know this place, and once you're sitting at the bar, you don't want to leave the place until you've tasted a lot of the food you see under your eyes...!! Have a nice walk and a nice meal! And take pictures!! :))))

    MACBA
    Do you know the MACBA in Barcelona? What is it?? It's the famous "Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona", great place of contemporary art, great building, and great place where the daily part of the Sonar festival takes place. It's located near of the "Plaça Catlunya" and the "Ramblas" in the centre of the city (Pl. dels Angels, 1). Easy to find, just follow the signs... The building was inaugurated 1995 and is the work of the architect Richard Meier.
  • La Reserve

    La Reserve
    Nice is well known for the beaches along the seafront. During the summer they're crowded with so many tourists that spending an afternoon at the beach is not so nice...BUT, if you know some special places that only people living in Nice are going to, you can spend great time on the beach without the tourist crowd :). One of these places (the people of Nice wouldn't be very happy if they know that I am revealing this nice place...;) is the beach called "La Reserve" near the port of Nice. Go to the port, following the coastal road to Villefranche and directly after the port you'll arrive on the Boulevard Franck Pilatte, and follow the road until the restaurant called "La Reserve".
  • Science Museum

    Science Museum
    The science museum in London is a great place because it's very interesting about many different things and because you can take pictures of almost everything you see! :) It's a way of learning many new things about science and what I prefer is the big room of planes, cars and space! Another very interesting part is about optics and history of photography and so many other different subjects.
  • Market of La Libé

    Market of La Libé
    It's the old market of the "Place de la Libération" named after the allied Victory in World War II and the liberation of the city of Nice in 1944. Since then, the place changed name into "Place Charles de Gaulle" but all the people still name it "la Libération", or best, "la Libé". The market takes place every day of the year, whatever the weather is. You can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables, great quality of fish, spices, flowers and very good Olive oil too... The whole market is very mixed in a very popular mood.
  • Islands of Lérins

    Islands of Lérins
    The islands of Lérins are 2 little islands in the bay of Cannes, only 15 min by boat from the port of Cannes. Go until the end of the port and take one of the 2 companies who make the trips to the islands (see the links). Make a nice little journey to these islands which are a nature protected area and not touched by all the constructions and mass-tourism of the whole Cote d'Azur.
  • Pérouges

    Pérouges
    Pérouges, near of Lyon is a beautiful little medieval village located in the natural park of La Dombes (see other location). It's among the most beautiful villages of France as it is truly very well preserved with the old houses and narrow streets. It's a very nice and romantic place where you must absolutely stop if you're in this area.
  • Beach of Altafulla

    Beach of Altafulla
    When I went to Barcelona this summer, I made a little excursion south, in the direction Tarragona, to visit some friends living in Altafulla, small town on the Costa Daurada. It's about 100 km south from Barcelona and easy to go there with the coastal highway. You'll go out at the exit "Torredembarra/Altafulla", then follow the signs to Altafulla. In the city, follow the direction of the "roman ruins" and after "Playa de Altafulla". It's a great and wide sand beach and the beautiful blue/turquoise color of the sea gives you immediately a big smile! :)
  • Parc de la Ciutadella

    Parc de la Ciutadella
    The "Parc de la Ciutadella" in Barcelona is cool, green and quiet place in the centre of the city and not so far away from the beach. It's located near to the "Estacio de França" (see other location) and there are plenty of things to make there. You can visit a zoo, make a little boat tour on a little lake, visit the geological and zoological museum and admire the great building of the Parliament of Catalunya in the centre of the park. A very "family friendly" park with a lot of things to do for the kids, great green space to make picnics, play, sunbathe and sleep away from the noises of the city. The place was constructed as a park when used for the 1888 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona. You can spend a whole day in this park by visiting the 2 museums, have a little rest and time for taking pictures, and after that make a little visit to the zoo! :) Have a nice day!
