About this deal

During winter, Potsdamer Platz turns into a giant winter wonderland where people go to ski in the ice rink. 6. Dada Falafel It would be disrespectful to visit Warsaw without paying homage to the city’s most famous luminary, so spend a few hours in this beautiful museum’s listening booths, or admiring the last piano Chopin ever played. Although falafel is not a local dish, it is really popular amongst Berliners. Dada Falafel is known for is freshly prepared falafel and you can always see a queue outside their shop. 7. Clärchens Ballhaus The story begins in London on May 31, 1944. An American army major, Jefferson Pike (James Garner), enters Allied Forces HQ to discuss the ongoing invasion preparations. The top brass aren't convinced that Allied deception efforts have fooled the Germans. While poring over a wall map of German troop dispositions in France, Pike inadvertently slides his finger along the edge of the map, incurring a nasty paper cut.

A disappointed Major Gerber asks how and when Pike figured out the scheme and Pike tells him about the paper cut. Gerber explains that Pike was carefully examined for injuries when he arrived, but the cut was obviously concealed in a skin crease. Gerber still thinks Normandy was a truthful answer, but he knows no one will believe him. The SS indeed discounts Pike's accurate story and allows the bulk of the German forces to remain idled near Calais. Gerber explains regretfully that Pike will now be handed over to the tender mercies of the SS. If you’ve followed this list, you’re probably starving by now — and there’s no better way to enjoy a well-deserved lunch than to visit London’s South Bank. Venture south and you’ll find a stretch of restaurants, buskers, and pop-up stores along the River Thames. Nina Siegal writes about European art and culture for The Times from her home in Amsterdam.

Tip: In summer you can enjoy a beautiful walk alongside the Spree while enjoying the murals. 9. Hops & Barley For me, a city trip wouldn’t be complete without trying out the local food of a country and just like the pasta in Italy, Berlin as well has its popular foods. And trust me this won’t disappoint. Oxford Street is famous for being THE place to go in London to shop. Here, you can expect to see high street brands such as Zara, Topshop, and more, sprinkled in with a few of London’s homegrown shops, such as Hamleys toy store. Our first stop was to the city of ancient Rome to visit the unmissable Colosseum, just one of the reasons why you should visit Rome. The sky was blue and it was 2pm, were were in Rome! The Reichstag is the seat of the German parliament and just a short walk from the Brandenburger Tor. The building merges the rather outdated appearance of the stone structure with a modern glass dome, which offers a panoramic view of central Berlin.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in. When flying to Rome you will land at either Fiumicino Leonard da Vinci or Ciampino Airports. Fiumicino is the biggest of the two airports slightly further out of the city, both airports offer great transport links. A recent overgrown garden installation in Trafalgar Square, London.

London is well-known for being an epicentre for the arts and culture, bringing in performers from far and wide to its many acclaimed theatres and production companies. Because of this, it’s home to some of the best musicals, plays, and comedy shows the world has to offer. Now that you’ve got London’s main attractions out of the way, you can begin to explore its more quirky and hidden gems. Shoreditch is a great place to visit: it’s home to many hipster cafes, thrift shops, street art, and more.Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special. Of course, the beautiful city of Berlin has even more to offer than the tips on this list. If you are a history geek like me, you should definitely fill up your itinerary with the best museums. Villa Borghese is a delightful landscaped garden right in the centre of Rome. The gardens cover an area of 80 hectares and were developed in 1606 by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who wanted to turn his former vineyard into the most extensive gardens built in Rome. Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

While at Potsdamer Platz, do look out for the metal strip on the ground which demarcates where the Berlin Wall used to stand. However, you’re on a time limit — which is why we recommend experiencing it via a bicycle. You can rent a Santander Cycle , which is stationed all around Hyde Park’s many exit and entrance points, for as low as two British pounds. This way, you can enjoy the magnificent views the park has to offer without sacrificing too much of your time.

Welcome back!

The Tiber River wends it way through Rome, under at least five bridges as it heads from the Apennine mountains, through Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Take a Tiber river cruise and enjoy a glass of Italian wine with 360° panoramic views of the city at dusk. The rooms are spacious and functional, which is a luxury itself. Even the most luxurious of Venice’s hotels don’t have the largest rooms just because of the nature of the buildings. The king size beds are comfortable and the Canal facing rooms have a superb view of Venice. You can walk up to this area from Piazza Popolo if you’re up for a few stairs! (head into the Piazza from the Porto del Popola and take a left, you will see the stairs in front of you). Wander the Villa Borghese Beware of the tourist traps, however. South Kensington is notoriously busy because of its many attractions: the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and the V&A ( Victoria and Albert Museum); its proximity to Hyde Park; concert halls (the Royal Albert Hall is a 10-minute walk away); and universities (both Imperial College London and the Royal Academy of Music).
