The City is Yours!


Dear Friend,

August can be a sleepy time for cities. Here in Philadelphia I enjoy tucking into some of the city’s most popular restaurants without a reservation.

In Europe it’s even quieter. Many of the natives escape to the beach, leaving the city to its visitors. It can be a nice time to visit, though perhaps less "real" than when the natives are in full force.

We love the cities of Europe and have been mindful of them in our planning of Untours.

While we adore Amsterdam, we prefer a home base in Leiden, with its university-town amenities and very easy access to Amsterdam. We prefer Sintra’s views and pacing, though much of its magic lies in its proximity to Lisbon! Our Central Scotland apartments have easy access to Glasgow and Edinburgh but are not in them.

And there are so many ways to experience in cities like London and Paris, we have been mindful to find comfortable apartments in a variety of neighborhoods there, each with its own distinct style and sense of place.

Whether you stay in or near a big city with us, know that the minds at Untours have pondered the best options for you and are offering what we consider the optimal approach. Here is some more of the city wisdom we’ve accrued, to get you dreaming and planning. It's not too late for fall, and 2019 is ready to book!
