    What's new in Italy in 2014

    Child's play in Europe
    When parents tell me they're going to Europe and ask me where to take their kids, I'm sometimes tempted to answer, "To Grandma and Grandpa's on your way to the airport." It's easy to make the case against taking the kids along. A European vacation with...
  • What's new in France in 2013

    Travelers to France find a rich and constantly changing palette of cultural and historic sights. Here's a review of what's new or different in la belle France for 2013: Increasingly, attractions in Paris and beyond are adding online ticketing, which lets...
  • Dazzling St. Petersburg

    Dazzling St. Petersburg
    The last time I visited St. Petersburg, in the 1990s, the Russian city was gray and depressing. But during a recent visit, I found a town that sparkles. Three hundred years ago, St. Petersburg was a dismal swampland. But that was before Tsar Peter I --...

    Europe's oddball museums broaden perspectives
    You could spend a lifetime in Europe's grand museums -- the Louvre, the British Museum, and many others. But I also like to take in a destination's more idiosyncratic sights, getting a bead on the quirkier side of the local culture. It's my nature as a...
  • A classical way to see (and hear) Europe

    I've always taught what I loved -- and I've always loved music. I spent my high school years as a piano teacher. I'd start out my students with boogies and pop songs, and eventually get them turned on to Bach and Beethoven. In 1980, a truck dropped off...
  • Taking Europe slow, with limited mobility

    Let's face it: Compared to the United States, Europe is not very accessible to those with limited mobility. In fact, many of my favorite sights -- castles and hill towns -- were actually designed to be inaccessible. But I'm inspired by the fact that...
  • What's new in Italy for 2013

    Italy has more of Europe's cultural heritage than any other country -- and the Italians are doing a fine job of sharing it with their visitors. Here is the latest, gleaned from my guidebook research for 2013: Rome has made visiting the Vatican Museum...
  • Touched by history: Meeting a witness to WWI assassination

    Touched by history: Meeting a witness to WWI assassination
    Sometimes history punches you right in the face, and there's no time to duck. It happened to me when I was a teenager in Vienna, accompanying my parents on a business trip. My dad's local contact -- Dr. Radler -- piled us into his Mercedes for a Sunday...
  • Denmark beyond Copenhagen

    Copenhagen is a thriving metropolis and the main attraction in Denmark. But a trip here isn't complete without a swing through the cute Danish countryside. In less than two hours, you can time-travel from modern Copenhagen to a 10th-century Viking ship,...
