Heidelberg

Heidelberg is known to tourists for its famous castle, for Germany’s oldest university and for lanes in the Old Town that are steeped in history. It is also a modern scientific and economic center with an international reputation and a most lively and varied cultural scene. This attracts people from all over the world, some 3.5 million guests per year.

Heidelberg's castle ruins have been famous for centuries as romantic ruins, so they’ve not been fully restored. Yet this is one of the most evocative castles you might visit in Europe.

Inside is a wonderful Pharmacy museum, as well as the world’s largest wine barrel (a vat having a capacity of 195,000 liters or approx. 51,514 gallons.) There is a wine bar inside the palace, and a small cafe outside where you can get a drink or eat a light meal.


Good times in Provence

Even just two or three days in the Provence area of south-east France is well worth the journey, as they say in the Michelin guides. Especially if you are an art lover and particularly if, like me, you enjoy classical modern art, Picasso, Matisse, Fernand Leger, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder.

In the area around Grasse, you can combine two of my very favorite activities: hiking in beautiful countryside and visiting art galleries. No, make that three activities. I also love to eat and Provençal cuisine is delicious and also healthy. What more could anyone want?

Red Wine and White Truffles

On the gourmet trail in Piemonte

People who like to eat good, rather traditional food and to drink full-bodied red wine, will enjoy a visit to the Piemonte region in Northern Italy in the autumn.

The best time for the greedy (or discerning) gourmet is from the end of October through the beginning of December. That’s when the best fresh white truffles (tartufi bianchi) are available and it’s also a good time to visit some of the many excellent and mostly friendly vineyards that produce some of the best red wines in the world.
