    Where are some off-the-beaten-path places to visit in Germany?

    Visit to a concentration camp is an unforgettable experience. It is not easy visit but it is so important we don´t forget. Neuengamme is in the outskirts of Hamburg and worth visiting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuengamme_concentration_camp over 8 years ago

    Where the most beautiful place in Istanbul

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say. For me there is no one place the most beautiful place in any city, or any country. All the places together make the city / country what it is and Istanbul is truly a vibrant and beautiful city. There are many places that are of special interests to tourist but that does not necessarily make them beautiful places, though interesting. Everyone must pick his or her own favorite spot in every city. I am attaching few websites if you want to have a quick look yourself at what Istanbul has to offer, maybe you will find your beautiful place on some of the photos. http://www.lonelyplanet.com/turkey/istanbul http://english.istanbul.com/ http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&pq=rome+%2B+hope+on&xhr=t&q=istanbul&cp=5&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&sa=X&ei=V_19TbvXMMa1hAfl9IDkBg&sqi=2&ved=0CH8QsAQ&biw=1024&bih=570 over 8 years ago

    How best to see rome in three days

    Rome has so much to offers visitors so three to four days will only allow you to get a glimpse of what this great city has to offer. However, if you plan your visit wisely you will be able to do and see a lot in those three days. Many of the main tourist attractions are relatively close by so you can walk or take taxi or buses. Hop-on Hop-off buses are also a nice way to get an overview of any city. There are plenty of great places to eat in Rome, catering for all tastes and budget. I am attaching few links that should help you to plan what to see and where to eat during your stay in Rome. http://www.lonelyplanet.com/italy/rome http://www.timeout.com/rome/ http://www.italyguides.it/us/roma/rome_italy_travel.htm Hope you enjoy your visit to this great city, try to stay four days if you can. over 8 years ago

    We have a trip to Jordan planned for late May. Considering all the unrest in the Middle East, should we still consider going? Or cancel?

    Good and very understandable question which no one can answer except you! However, to help you make up your mind you should check your government travel advisory. I do not know your nationality but adding link to the US and British official travel advisory websites. They provide wealth of information for any nationality. http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_4965.html http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/travel-advice-by-country/?action=noTravelAll You might also want to answer our 5 questions that help you to evaluate the travel warnings for your destination http://www.top-travel-tips.com/travel-warnings.html over 8 years ago
