Londra

London is a little bit like Paris, an historical city, symbol and economic centre of Europe. It doesn’t have the Parisian melancholic majesty, but have the charm that make it unique. Walking around Mayfair let you know the Londoner’s elegance; wonderful the contrast between the chaotic Oxford Street and the small streets behind it where you can find some quietness and enjoy a typical London meal (hamburger and draft beer) in one of the many pubs. Obviously the nightlife is very elegant as it is for tastes and ages. Not to be missed  a walk through Hyde Park and Kensington’s gardens or Regent’s park. Chelsea district is beautiful, Soho is very interesting. The typical touristic places are amazing such as the British Museum, the Ntional Gallery, Madame Tussauds, the Big Ben, the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge, the Westminster Abbey, the  St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingam Palace and many others. For the shopping lovers not to be missed Portobello and Harrods, besides Oxford Street. So far the “touristic London” but there is also another London, very beautiful as wee: trendy and alternative (Shoreditch and Dalston), young and cool (Islington and Clapham), green (Hampstead), suggestive visits (Primrose Hill), culinary (Borough Market e Broadway Market) and blossomed (Columbia Market). You could stay a month.

For the sports’ lovers and in particular soccer and tennis, there is a lot to see, as England was the country in which soccer was invented there are six Premier League teams, and it is a beautiful experience to see a match in an English stadium. Obviously for tennis lovers, not to be missed  the most beautiful tournament in the  world, Wimbledon.
