Original Markets and Flea markets across Europe

Original Markets and Flea markets across Europe

Attractions, monuments, museums, restaurants… Each trip to a new city brings countless places that are well worth a visit, but a good way to discover the true essence of cities is visiting their markets and flea markets. Events revolving around gastronomy, art, culture, and music that are becoming increasingly popular in large cities, and that are held occasionally. We are talking about urban markets based on the concept of street markets, and the dates of these not-to –be-missed rendezvous are marked in the agendas of the locals in the cities where they are held. The wide variety of products on offer position these markets, not just as an option for alternative shopping, but also as a different and original type of entertainment. If you enjoy activities that fall outside the range of common traveling activities, these events may prove to be a great option for discovering the destination you are at, and thus we bring you some of the most original markets and flea markets of some European cities. Barcelona – Palo Alto Market Barcelona’s most creative flea market is held every first weekend of the month. A gathering where entertainment, culture, and outdoors commerce are fostered, bringing together designers that carry most attractive products of the year.

Traveling Like a Local – A City, an OnlybeFrom Moment

Traveling Like a Local – A City, an OnlybeFrom Moment

We are convinced that the feeling of belonging marks the difference and makes each trip unique, giving it its own story. Our OnlybeFrom philosophy is based on a new way of traveling and seeing new places from the standpoint of local belonging. It’s not about visiting Paris or Barcelona, or about just being there; it’s about BEING Parisian or BEING Barcelonan. And that’s why, today, we want to share with you some OnlybeFrom moments from several cities. Take good note!   Berlin The secret is probably out by now, but it’s definitely something not to miss on your next trip to Berlin. One of the most popular karaoke contests is held every Sunday afternoon at the Mauerpark amphitheater. Join the Berliners and feel like a true pop star. And don’t worry; everyone gets a well-earned round of applause.   Barcelona La Boquería is Barcelona’s best-known market, but if you visit the Santa Caterina Market instead, you’ll avoid the hordes of tourists and be able to shop like Barcelonans do. You’ll feel like a true local in the Catalan capital and get access to the best ingredients for a dinner worthy of Master Chef in your very own apartment.   Paris The best part about traveling is discovering how the locals live and feeling the true essence and rhythm of your destination also at night. Visit the Ufo Bar at night and sample one of its delicious cocktails (they specialize in rum based cocktails) to the sound of live music in a 100% local atmosphere.   Rome Rome, Italy, at 8am: locals drink their espressos standing at the bar before...
