  6. romantic poet reviewed The Jurassic Coast in West Country, United Kingdom

    Lulworth Cove is an almost perfect semi circle of narrow pale sand bellow steep yet rounded green hills, so it looks a bit like a bowl of blue green loveliness. It's part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site close to a rock arch less charmingly nam…"

  15. romantic poet reviewed Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy

    More like a 1950’s hotel lobby than a bar, and always very busy, Harry’s Bar is still an irresistible institution. You will naturally want to order a Bellini, they were 15 Euro last visit, but then this is their birthplace! My tip would be to order a ‘R…"

  16. romantic poet reviewed Jardin Exotique in Monaco

    Monte Carlo is awash with colour from the bright, wealthy hotels, blinding super yachts down to the blue harbour which shines in the sun like cut glass. Walking in the sun amongst the amazing array of exotics and succulents which line the cliff top in t…"

  20. romantic poet reviewed Basilica du Sacre Coeur in Paris, France

    For the aesthete: So perfectly and carefully constructed, Sacre Coeur sits on Paris’s highest point, held up as surely one of it’s most lovely tributes to god. We’re supposed to find love with symmetry and here Sacre Coeur delivers, wh…"

  23. romantic poet reviewed Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri) in Venice, Italy

    Amorous Venice is full of historically romantic sights with beautiful stories attached. Uneducated romantic poet that I am I thought this bridges sighs may have referred to lovers, but it turns out to have a less lovely, but no less historic tale. A co…"

  25. romantic poet reviewed Sistine Chapel in Rome, Italy

    This famously and meticulously decorated chapel is best known for its Michelangelos and for being the site of the Papal conclaves where decisions about papal succession are made. Outside it’s a plain rectangular brick building without any of the floun…"

  27. romantic poet reviewed Troy in Marmara Region, Turkey

    We know about Troy because of Homer’s epic poetic tomes in which he tells the story of Troy and Helen and the horse. Romantic and dramatic, she had the face that launched a thousand ships and armies of men fought for her honour. Sigh. Not like that the…"
