In each issue of The Simple Things we publish a local’s insider guide to some of the coolest, most interesting and simply favourite cities to visit. As the summer holiday begins, we’re releasing one online each week in association with our friends at Inntravel – The slow holiday people
This guide was first published in May 2013 - issue 9*
18 June - Helsinki
25 June – Berlin
2 July – Palma
* Since this guide was published The Kooka Boora café is now called KB Café and Nichole’s favourite store, A l’Etoile d’Or, a chocolate shop, has closed (the building collapsed in 2014 after a spectacular gas explosion).
MY CITY is supported by INNTRAVEL, the Slow Holiday people, who have spent the last three decades exploring Europe’s most beautiful corners along the lesser-trodden path. When it comes to cities, their self-guided walking tours have been carefully researched using their own expert knowledge and insider tips from locals. These specially created routes take in the best-known sights, but also those hidden gems that others miss. Find out more by visiting http://www.inntravel.co.uk
