I have been struggling to find a contemporary and informative city guide covering European cities. However, I recently found citytherapy - an online city guide and social community.
The site is to bring together the people in Europe (and their individual profiles), the places they go to (bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, hotels) and the events they attend in some of Europe’s main cosmopolitan centres (London, Paris, Barcelona, Milan and Brussels).
What I like is the fact that it’s regular people living Milan telling you about their favourite restaurant or somebody living in Paris telling you about their boutique, effectively people in the know. This is significantly better than the static, generic guides you get such as Timeout or Lonely Planet.
So it’s a case of with citytherapy when in Rome do as the Romans!!!
