Saint-Émilion is a medieval wine-village located a 45-minute drive away from the city Bordeaux in France. Some of the best wines in the world are produced in Saint-Émilion and it’s one of the largest wine regions in Bordeaux. But even if you don’t consider yourself a wine connoisseur you should put Saint-Émilion at the top of your bucket list for France.
Exquisite architecture, fresh seafood, a vibrant city with a historic core, and some of the best wine in the world—in a nutshell, this is Bordeaux, France. Even better, the whole city is highly walkable, with pedestrian-only areas and welcoming squares. In less than an hour, you can also visit the beach or make your way to castle-like chateaux producing superb wine in fairy tale settings.
Whether you’re a photographer trying to find the perfect spot to capture the Eiffel Tower, or a traveller coming to Paris and wanting to see the Eiffel Tower from the best angles, this guide is for you: I’ll share with you the BEST Eiffel Tower views across the city.
Anything about Paris is romantic, it’s a poem. Its buildings, its bridges, a river cruise, its alleys, croissants… Everything is perfect, harmonious. You can sit in a park watching what’s around you and get lost in a whirlwind of emotions. From its bustling river banks, the beauty and charm of its architecture, the delicious food, countless opportunities to explore art, culture, and history—the reasons I love Paris are as diverse as the city itself.
Even though Sidi Bou Saïd probably isn’t an insider tip anymore, the small town on Tunisia’s Mediterranean coast is still absolutely worth seeing. That’s because the whole village is kept in two colours. Whether church, shutters, awning, park bench or rubbish bin: Simply everything is white and/or blue here.
With its golden beaches and sapphire blue sea, its medieval monuments and its charming marina, Monastir offers one of the most attractive faces of Tunisia.
Thanks to Tunisia’s position, at the meeting point of Africa and Europe, the country is steeped in history and has no less than eight UNESCO world heritage sites. Much like Jordan in the Middle East, a number of these ruins are better preserved than their equivalents in Europe.
If you’re dreaming of long, glorious summer days, postcard-pretty beaches and warm dips in the Mediterranean Sea, look no further than Tunisia. With 800 miles of beautiful coastline and a variety of sunbathing spots to discover, from family-friendly resorts to secluded beaches, you’ll love the variety that Tunisia has to offer.
In Tunisia’s capital, the term “living history” really does apply. Here, periods of conquest, trade and independence have woven into the city’s fabric and culture a rich and complex flavour that becomes apparent wherever you explore. Despite that, my boyfriend and I decided to stay in nearby Sidi Bou Said, both for logistical reasons as well as aesthetical ones; we wanted a quick access by car to other parts of the country and we also wanted to spend a couple of nights in this beautiful town that bears resemblance to the island of Santorini.
Tunisia is perhaps most famous for its wide array of historical attractions, including the ancient city of Carthage in Tunis, and the huge Amphitheatre of El Jem near Sousse, which show off the influences of various civilizations that have settled in the country over the years. Sun-seekers can also enjoy its sea and gorgeous Mediterranean beaches.
