Friday, April 16th, 2010

If you are planning a cultural Spring trip, nothing better than Paris. Discover the most extensive collection of Monet’s work. Pay a visit to the Musée de L’Orangerie, and the Musée Marmottan Monet, where you will be surrounded by Monet’s lily paintings. Dig deeper in Monet’s life and artwork with a day trip to Giverny, which will only take you 45 minutes by train from the French capital.

This week’s Rome has gone through a soccer fever as last Sunday’s game positioned AS Roma as the number one in the Italian league (Serie A). Next game is due this Sunday in Rome’s Olympic Stadium. This time the Roman team AS Roma plays against the fellow Roman team Lazio. A series of positive results for AS Roma, would lead this Rome’s team to win the Scudetto, the Italian league championship. Visitors interested in sports may not want to miss this show. So, if you are looking for tikets or Roma’s team memorabilia you just need to go to one of Rome Points.

Traveling to Copenhagen? If you are going to Denmark, Europe A La Carte suggests you to visit a paradise amidst the city: Tage Andersen, a flower magician. Depending on the time of the year you’re visiting this spot, you will find pots of flowers or fruit trees. To spend some time inside, you have to pay a little fee, but it is worth a visit. Have a good Spring time in Copenhagen!

The insider’s travel guide EuropeUpClose proposes a tour to historical Gdansk, in Poland. Walk through this Polish city cobblestone streets and discover its traditional restaurants, pubs and artisan shops. St Mary’s Church, the Cathedral of Oliwa, the National Museum in Gdansk, the Neptune Fountain and the Gdansk shipyards are some of the worth visiting sites.

Turkey is a very popular destination. We are used to seeing Turkey pictured in travel guides with huge and beautiful resorts with some camels here and there and Turkish men with big mustaches, but you should know some facts about Turkey before going there. And the truth is that no native camels exist in Turkey, it has not a desert, so no camels were born there, and Turkish young men prefer a clean face than a mustache.
