Begin your day with breakfast at Espresso Bar – Arzobispado. It’s located in the old city and a great place to get your coffee fix. A coffee here should be no more than $5.

 

While in the old city, take some time to explore it. The “walled city” was once used as shelter from pirates and storms. Now it’s usually crowded with travelers looking for great restaurants, shops and bars. Exploring is free, but bring some money in case there is a souvenir you want to purchase.

 

One of the coolest sites in Cartagena is the huge castle, San Felipe de Barajas. Construction began in 1639 but was not completed for another 150 years. Today, visitors can walk through the impressive structure and be taken back in time. Check out the underground passages — it makes you feel like you’re in a Tomb Raider video game. General admission is $20.

 

After walking, enjoy an afternoon relaxing on Cartagena’s best beach, Playa Blanca. It has crystal-clear waters and is open to the public until 10 p.m. You’ll have to catch a boat to reach the beach, which will cost around $22.

 

Try out La Cevichería for dinner. Definitely order the ceviche, the dish the restaurant is named after, for a delicious dinner. A full meal shouldn’t cost more than $40.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.
