Nice little village Great destination for a short day trip Crowded in summer, but a little nicer over Xmas/New Year I bought some "saucissons". The goat cheese saucisson really impressed me. I wished I had bought more.

Came here a few years ago when it was still a normal town here. Now it's overcrowded with tourists. You have to queue for parking space. A bit disappointing.

Cute is the only was to describe the old town area of Durbuy. Narrow cobbled streets meander by even older stone buildings which today house cafes, hotels and shops. Regardless of the season this is a lovely place to spend a few hours.

Cosy little town in the South of Belgium. The people are friendly, the food delicious and sightseeing is limited but worth it. The atmosphere of this magical town brings you back to the olden days of peace and quite. Even though touristic, the wide range...More

A charmer. Town/city is worth a day visit. Good guided tour with lots of sampling was most enjoyable. Great topiary with some clever bushes. Interesting side streets and alleyways.

Lviv 2 day itinerary - Need advice please (6 Replies)
Hi All, I'll be in Lviv for 2 days and I was looking for what would be a good starting place for an itinerary. I was able to pull some information from the web (courtsey of lvivalive.com) and added a couple of items to it. Can the experts in the forum look at the itinerary below and give me feedback on it? I would love to get the best of both the cultural aspects and interesting aspects of Lviv, and I'm hoping that I can shape my itinerary to cater to that. Thanks in advance for...More

Your plans for each day are very short, especially the 1st day, the things you've planned doable in few hours, because all this are located on very small area, within 500 m from Rynok sq. At the same time - there areas outside this 500 m around Rynok, which are definitely worth to see. My favorite ones are Kastelivka and Baiky (it's amazing, they are in hundred meters to side on the way from train station to city center, thousands of tourist pass nearby, but almost nobody know about it)...More

Sorry, there is no original Hard Rock Cafe in Bratislava - there are few restaurants of similar type, e.g. Barrock: tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g274924-d2…

Accommodation in Old town of Antalya (6 Replies)
Hello, My husband and I will arrive in Antalya on Oct 2 and we plan to stay there for maybe 1-2 nights. Would it be better to book accomodation in Old town/Kaleci in advance or could we easily find a place once we arrive? We are especially interested in low budget/pension/family owned inns with free breakfast. thanks! C

May be worth having a look on hotels.com as you can refine the search to Kaleici and it lists the hotels' facilities. Then maybe ask for opinions or information for the hotels on your short list. You should get a good choice for this time of year.
