TRAVEL IN EUROPE: Caves dig deeply into prehistoric times

posted: 06/19/2016 1:54 a.m. Discuss

Europe is rich in history, but the splendid castles, antique churches and age-old ruins tell only part of the story. To dig even deeper in time -- much deeper -- visit a cave. Some of my favorites, in France and Slovenia, showcase 17-foot-long bulls drawn by our ancient forebears and 100-foot-high stalagmites sculpted by nature.

TOKYO -- Explore Tokyo beyond the crowded tourist highlights and you'll find many older parts of the city with a different look and slower pace. One of these, the area around the Metro station Kiyosumi-Shirakawa, is a convenient side trip if you're visiting the Tokyo Skytree, which is four stops away.

A long weekend in New Orleans conjures up images of boozy days and nighttime street parties. A place where the debauchery never stops and inhibitions are checked at the door.

TRAVEL IN EUROPE: Cafes, pubs let visitors live as the locals do

After a busy day in Vienna, I like to retreat to a striped velvet couch at the renowned Cafe Hawelka. The decor here is circa-1900, with smoke-and-coffee-stained furniture, walls adorned in paintings by struggling artists (who couldn't pay for coffee), and a phone that rings for regulars. This creaky Viennese institution, where intellectuals like Leon Trotsky once stewed, has become my local living room in Austria.

Italy's volcanic bed boils

Puffing out clouds of vapor continuously is a volcanic phenomenon not far from Naples.
