Most Expensive City: London, hands down. Accommodation in Venice? 55 Euros. Almost equivalent accommodation in London? 55 Pounds.
Most Overrated City: Milan. It’s not that bloody special, and the shopping district is pretty average actually. City felt dirty, unsafe and just out-and-out sucky.
Most Overrated Museum/Monument/Art Gallery: The Louvre. The Mona Lisa specifically. Honourable Mention: Buckingham Palace.
Most Overrated Attraction: The Changing of the Guards. So very pointless.
Worst Restaurant Service: Paris. Rude French waiters are not a rule – some of the best service I had was in Nice – but Paris seems to have a very distinct style.
Coffee So Good You’ll Never Want To Leave: Rome. My oh my was it good coffee – grungy little cafe just behind the Colosseum.
Hello Vertigo: Top of the Leaning Tower. Honourable Mention: La Saguardia Familia, Barcelona, and The Eiffel Tower.
I Ate Too Much: Florence. But the food was sooooo gooood.
Sunsets to Silence Even Obnoxious American Tourists: Nice. Sunsets to make your inner artist cry at their beauty.
Great Value Award: Spain/Barcelona. Cheapest place in Europe that I went to.
You Know We Ain’t In Kansas Anymore: Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
Bass That Makes Your Stomach Hurt: Ministry of Sound.
Most Bizarre Pub Name: The Snail and Cabbage.
Rollicking Good Time: Revolution bar, Soho. 6 shots of flavoured vodka for 10 pounds: Excellent Value.
Most Maddening Place in the History of Humanity: London Heathrow. There was an hour’s wait to get through security after check-in. If this place doesn’t get on your goat…
I Never Want to Eat It Again: Pizza. Honourable Mention: Ham. What is it with all the ham love?
I Need To Come Back Here Award: Monaco. Preferably with a Lamborghini underneath me.
(I’ll add more if I can think of any)
