"Hundreds of houses were quickly build, but unfortunately all of it was burned to the ground in 1611 by Danish forces."
"The town of Como, largest settlement around Lake Como, attracts a lot of people with big wallets. But I preferred to take the funicular up the mountain to the Brunate region, where you get a much better view of the lake."
"Opera House is seen in front of the massive fireworks in the harbor area, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Harbour Bridge."
"The old Medina is full of fascinating gates and narrow alleys, where I blend in like Moby Dick at a NIN concert."
"The area contains 54 excavated bunkers along with gun emplacements, scattered around the town’s most visible landmark."
"Vaduz Castle is overlooking the town from a hill, a short walk from the center. It’s really a postcard view with the alps in the background, which I’m sure the prince enjoys as he sips his morning coffee while towering above his loyal subjects."
