London - there are many ways to experience this British capital - while the tube is fast and efficient, London really is a walkers paradise. While bustling with people, business, some of world's best shopping and pubs galore, London is also home to the Thames River, Hyde Park and commons, gardens, and ancient cemeteries to explore with this Untamed London guide.
Urban Nomad Tip - hire a bike and travel along the Thames as you journey from the heart of the city near the London Eye all the way out to the woodlands and meadows that sit alongside this famous waterway.

Barcelona - this Spanish urban city is not the capital but is arguably the capital of culture and soul to the Catalonian people and those who visit. The home of Antoni Gaudi's architectural masterpieces as well as the food markets, paella, sangria and Las Ramblas make Barcelona an top on our list of recommended destinations.
Urban Nomad Tip - grab a map and explore Barcelona on foot to experience Gaudi's Casa Batllo, Sagrada Familia and Parc de la Ciutadella in all their glory.

Venice - arguably the romantic capital of Italy; if not the world, hop on the train into Venice and you will be in a daze as you step out into an ancient water world. The famous canals are best explored on a gondola as you meander at walking pace along the waterways under the guidance of your Italian guide...cruise under centuries old bridges and past homes and palaces being lapped by the waves of history.
Urban Nomad Tip - hope on a ferry to visit the island of Murano, the home of the famous Italian Murano glassware.
