UPDATE March 25, 2016 : This offer is now closed.
Spring is coming and – at least in Europe – it means that the season of city breaks is about to start. Who doesn’t dream of a short weekend getaway in London, Paris, Barcelona, Venice, or even New York… I know I do!
Have you ever found yourself lost in a strange city? You have no clue where you are and then you turn around the next corner and all of a sudden you find yourself in the most beautiful town square, in front of a charming old building, or at a tiny little restaurant serving the best local food…
Sometimes, however, you really get lost and end up in the strangest places, dull streets, and nothing exciting to see…
It’s been a while since we went on a city trip. I mean a real city break – exploring the city to the fullest, visiting landmarks, museums, shopping, having long lunches and even longer dinners, sipping a drink on a terrace of a café… Young children and city breaks don’t go that well together. When we travel with kids, we usually stay outside the cities and only go there for a day. We go to Antwerp on regular basis, we took the kids to Brussels, Vilnius, Paris, Dubai, Sydney, Melbourne, visited many beautiful towns in Tuscany and at Lake Garda. City trips can be fun with kids. Fun but different…
It’s time for a real city trip again! I just booked a weekend in Rome with my cousin. We both feel we deserve a short break and some us time without having to worry about the kids for a change.
It’s been 10 years since I visited Rome and somehow it feels as if I’m going there for the first time. I want to see the very best of the city, but I also want to venture off the beaten path, discover some less known places and get a taste of real Rome. Do I need to buy a city guide, a new map, should I prepare anything in advance or just wander around and risk getting really lost? Solution arrived in my mailbox a few days ago – an app for self-guided city walks by GPSmyCity.
GPSmyCity.com makes popular iOS and Android apps that feature self-guided city walks in 470+ cities all over the world. Each app contains from a few to over a dozen self-guided walking tours for a single city, allowing visitors to explore on foot the best of the city at their own pace.
I have just downloaded their app for Rome and I can see how this app makes maps and city travel guides obsolete! There are more than 20 sightseeing walks and 8 discovery tours for Rome alone, with plenty of choice for everyone – from the most famous landmarks to Rome nightlife tour, from gift and souvenir shopping, antique hunting, to the poshest shopping locations… Each walk features a high-resolution offline map (no roaming fees!) guiding you to the famous attractions, monuments and interesting sights as well as hidden gems; as if you had brought along a local guide. Rome, here I come!
Do you also want to lose yourself in a city without getting lost? We might have something just for you!
