Our City Guides showcase a curated selection of places to stay, eat, shop and visit in each of the destinations we travel to. We focus on local businesses and slow tourism, and we hope our City Guides can be used as a starting point to plan your own itineraries.
Rotterdam isn’t new to sustainability, from architecture and design to food and fashion, the Dutch city has been ahead of the game for quite a long time, being home to many initiatives transforming how we live in an urban environment.
Exploring Milan with Locals
A fashion and design capital, Milan is also a city filled with contrasts where its past and traditions can be found everywhere across its streets. We set out to explore this further with 4 local, female creatives.
24 Hours in Bruges
A popular destination, this UNESCO World Heritage site also has a different side that it’s sometimes overlooked. Bruges embraces the future through modern art, architecture, food and a fascinating cultural offer.
Shopping Local in Eindhoven & Rotterdam
From independent fashion labels to eateries working with local producers, we have prepared a guide showcasing the local, creative businesses that are emerging across these two Dutch cities.
Utrecht often gets overshadowed by Amsterdam, but this Dutch city – one of the oldest in the Netherlands – offers a much more relaxed atmosphere and its compact size makes it the perfect destination for those who like discovering a city on foot.
Although the media has recently called it ‘the new Berlin’, this East German city is actually quite different from the country’s capital. Art spreads across the city but Leipzig is more laid-back and quiet, making it the perfect destination for those seeking a relaxing city break.
Wander around Madrid’s lively streets and get to experience the locals’ lifestyle. Order a vermouth and enjoy the Spanish sun outside, go shopping in the Malasaña and Chueca neighbourhoods or visit some of the numerous museums and small galleries located across the city.
Edinburgh’s compact size and mix of tradition and innovation makes it the perfect destination for a different weekend break. Discover some of our favourite places from the city we live in on our new city guide.
