Centuries of creativity
Described by many as a village, Amsterdam packs the cultural punch of a city many times its size. While still retaining a bit of a ‘sex, drugs and rock 'n’ roll' reputation, Amsterdam is now more about being a ‘creative city’ where the high standards set by such Golden Age painters as Rembrandt are maintained. The city has become a global hub for art, design, architecture and advertising, but one where all its attractions are just a short and scenic bike ride away.
Memorable Portuguese food in the City Centre
Arguably Manchester’s most universally popular new opening in 2006 was Jane and Carlos Cortes' Luso, which has brought inventive and tasty Portuguese food into the City Centre.
Eschewing solely Portuguese staples, Luso’s menu boldly ventures in the footsteps of Portuguese travelers. Consequently, vindaloo and tempura dishes feature. Despite this laudable experimentation, favourites like the house-salted salt cod still feature.
