Vrijthof at Maastricht

The basilica of Saint Servatius and the Main Guard at the Vrijthof in Maastricht are beautifully illuminated during the blue hour. Every year the summer concerts of André Rieu take place here at the Vrijthof, in Maastricht, the city where André Rieu was born. Some nice cafés and restaurants at the Vrijthof make it a cozy place. Also the famous preuvenemint with delicious tasting at a high level (for everyone) takes place here.

Old City of Avignon

After entering the Old City of Avignon through the City Gate connected to the Pont du Royaume, which crosses the river Rhone, we arrived here at Place Crillon. It was a beautiful place and a perfect spot to start discovering the old city of Avignon. The Palace of the Popes and the Pont Saint-Bénézet, better known as Pont d’Avignon are only a small walk away that takes just a couple of minutes.

Agkistros Mandraki Beach at Skiathos

This beach, Agkistros Mandraki Beach, is a very beautiful, sandy beach on the island of Skiathos. It is about 1500m from the paved road. There is a bus stop (number 21, “Mandraki) and from there you can walk through the forest. At this beach there is a nice tavern, so everything is available for a nice day at the beach.

Drymona Waterfall

In the northern part of Evia (Eboea), the second largest island of Greece, this beautiful waterfall can be found. It is called after the village Drymona in the neighbourhood and it is set in a very beautiful nature area. A good hiking path makes it easy for visitors to get to this waterfall. At the time of our visit (october), the creek didnt have much water, so the waterfall must be much more impressing at the end of winter, when water levels are much higher.

Full Moon over Methana

From Palea Epidauros (here seen from Hotel Yialasi, Panagia), there is a great view to Methana, a volcanic peninsula connected to the Peloponnese. If it is full moon and the moon rises during twilight, it gives a very moody view.
