Lonely Planet Guide to Spain

Lonely Planet, 05 September 2007 02:00

Once away from the holiday costas, you could only be in Spain. In the cities, narrow twisting old streets suddenly open out to views of daring modern architecture, while spit-and-sawdust bars serving wine from the barrel rub shoulders with blaring, glaring discos.   Travel is easy, accommodation plentiful, the climate benign, the people relaxed, the beaches long and sandy, the food ...

Lonely Planet guide to Latvia

Lonely Planet, 15 August 2007 11:06

Latvia is the small, flat and largely boggy meat in the sandwich between its Baltic neighbours. It packs a lot in though: start with Rīga, its vibrant coastal capital, and move on to photogenic castles, music festivals and scenic river valleys.

Lonely Planet guide to Italy

Europe's kinky over-the-knee boot has it all: popes, painters, polenta, paramours, poets, political puerility and potentates. Its dreamy light and sumptuous landscapes seem made for romance, and its three millennia of history, culture and cuisine seduces just about everyone. You can visit Roman ruins, gawk at Renaissance art, stay in tiny medieval hill towns, go skiing in the Alps, explore ...

Lonely Planet guide to Norway

Lonely Planet, 01 August 2007 01:00

Lonely Planet guide to Finland

Lonely Planet, 01 August 2007 01:00

Finland is for the most part a quiet land, where a ramshackle cottage by a lake and a properly stoked sauna is all that's required for happiness. It's a vast expanse of forests and lakes and more forests, punctuated by towns full of people who are genuinely surprised to see tourists. During the months of the midnight sun, coastal regions ...
