Local information

This is the Section of the site where we give recommendations on what to see and do in certain places.

While we are travelling and researching we spend many hours looking at museums and galleries, visiting churches or taking city walks. Sometimes we make notes of this information for future travellers who may be spending extra time in a city at the start or the end of a longer trip.

We felt that this information may be useful to all our fellow travellers so we have decided to publish what we have and to add to these pages as we make more and more detailed notes. We hope that you are able to make use of some of this information.
