Highlighting the best of European cities through local food, local drink and local culture, Residency is a resource for those set on taking travel in Europe for all it’s worth. We think the best way to enjoy a new city is like you’ve lived there for years – blending in and experiencing things the way locals do. Our small team of Berlin-based nomads are here, there and everywhere – collecting the best of the best and offering curated city guides to get you well acquainted with the best places to visit in Europe.
Best Places to Visit in Europe
There’s no doubt that Paris and Rome are rich and wonderful cities, but European travel based solely on such commonplace destinations would not even scratch the surface of the everything this continent has to offer. Residency aims to show off Europe’s wealth of cultural and ethnic diversity by featuring the lesser-known, the off-the-beaten-path and Europe’s most hidden gems.
Curated City Guides
There are no shortage of potentials when exploring a new place, so it’s important to know that each and every stop you make is time well spent. With each and every thing added to the itinerary (as well as each thing scratched out), it’s nice to feel confident that you’re making the most of even the shortest stay. Narrowing down the endless possibilities can be a tedious and taxing endeavor, no doubt. Especially when time is of the essence. We took it upon ourselves to craft selective guides as roadmaps for the best offerings of any city so you can make the most of any week-long stay or forty-eight hour city break. The guides include insider tips, recommendations from local tastemakers, and of course our own favorite finds from each and every city. You won’t find anywhere that we wouldn’t gladly visit ourselves, because we did. We’re picky and we know it.
Food, Drink, Culture
The Residency crew may be all over the map, but we can wholeheartedly confirm that we are folks of simple needs. As far as we’re concerned, great food, drink and culture are the pillars of time well spent in any new place – and it’s our aim to uncover the very best of each. Sampling the greatest offerings for coffee, cocktails, sightseeing and more, our best-of lists are thoughtfully curated to comprise the absolute best that any city has to offer. Focusing on the arenas of food, drink, and culture makes for an experience unlike anything one is likely to get simply engaging with a place as a tourist, and it’s this approach that provides the unique perspective of truly living life in a city – even a foreign one – and acquiring a genuine feel for the everyday rhythm of the local.
