We are always out and about here! Eheh! Enjoying the summer vacation is not just relaxing at the beach! Actually if you want to escape the heat, a short trip to one of the Scandinavians capitals is always a great solution (most likely if you are living in Europe)!
That's why me and my family headed to Copenhagen for a couple of days. We left quite early on a Tuesday morning and we reached the center of the city and the hotel by 10:00 a.m. We stayed at WakeUp Copenhagen a very nice hotel, very central and with good facilities. It's very clean and the rooms quite spacious. I really liked it and I recommend it. The reception service is not the best, but despite that it's worth the money.
We started the tour of the city in the smartest way possible when you have short time on you: Bus or Boat tour. Since Copenhagen is a charming city built on islands and canals, we opted for the boat tour! It was amazing! Starting from Nyhavn, the old port, we visited all the monuments and historical buildings boat view! Doing this kind of tour is really time-saving and the smartest solution if you just have the time to taste a bite of this city! There's a lot to see and a lot to visit! After the boat tour we had a walk in the center, full of shops and nice cafes and restaurants! For dinner we had an amazing tasting dinner at an excellent Italian restaurant "Bæst" in Nørrebro. I highly recommend it! I wish we had the time to visit that area that is famous for being the alternative part of the city (a kind on Grunerløkka if you are from Oslo or Corso di Porta Ticinese if you are from Milan).
The second and last day was dedicated to visit The Little Mermaid. It's pretty beautiful but there are a way too many tourists over there! It was looking like we were going to La Mecca or to Fatima in pilgrimage! Other than that the same area Kastellet and the park are pretty amazing with an old church and beautiful lakes. Much more enjoyable!
Many things to visit there still and that's a good reason to go back to that amazingly enjoyable city! Everything to discover!
