London Top #1. Every great city has its top points. A famous river, an immortal legend, a peculiar architecture… Eternal Rome, Paris City of Love, I Love NY… How about London?
Of course, London has a famous river, The Thames. On its banks, iconic buildings have been constructed through London long history. One of the oldest one is the Tower of London, impossible to forget Anne Boleyn… tragic times of deep lovers.
City of culture, I love particularly the new Tate Modern and its different vision. City for shopping and luxury, for glamour and new tendencies, old city where ghosts still inhabit its houses.
The Top#1 could be London theatre. Yes, it could.
However, in my opinion, the best point is on people. Cosmopolitan, helpful, creative, active, eccentric, ironic, polite… They create a different atmosphere, where old traditions mix with futuristic visions and innovative realizations. Always good experiences in London!
Have you ever been in London? How about your experience? Tell me.
