Bergamo, Bergamo, Bergamo. If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog you know how much I’m stressing the advice to spend vacation in Bergamo rather than Milan. You want another reason? Here you go. The view over the lower town of Bergamo, taken from the upper town. More information on the photo!
With that one I got lucky. First of all: A nicely colored sunset. Second, Fishermen for something interesting in the front. Third, the green “Island” on the left (which isn’t an island, the boat was taking it out later back to the sea. Guess it just drifted to the port.). And all that in front of the famous riverside of Gdansk.
Chotkovy sady is my favourite place for an overview over the city of Prague. You wonder why? Well, first of all you have this amazing view over the city. And second, even more important, most of the time you can enjoy this view without having any people around. Even on New Years Eve, there was only one family standing there apart from us, enjoying the fireworks over the Old Town.
Kranhaus – that means something like harbor crane houses, and I think the source of the name is obvious. When I came to Cologne, those new opened houses where on top of my list of places to visit. I completely adore that modern architecture and would love to have an office in such place.
The Grand Canal is so to say the main road of Venice. It starts on the railway station and goes south to the St. Mark’s Square. For that way you can also take the “bus”, it takes you more or less one hour for that 4km trip. If you happen to be in Venice I recommend you to go at least one way with that bus. You’ll have a good sightseeing for a fair price, and it’s great to see Venice from a perspective from the water.
