Destinations

ROME F I UMI C I NO

Feeling thirsty? Make your way to

craft brewery Doppio Malto on via

Poli, not far from the Trevi Fountain. It’s

a gastropub styled with exposed pipes,

rust-coloured tables and walls and a

copper-lined bar, creating a warm interior.

There’s a varied menu, ranging from bar

snacks such as fried aubergine, onion rings

or panzerotti, to foccacia with various

fillings, burgers, spare ribs, lasagne, salads

and a kids’ menu, too. Try their special

beer-infused capon (

galletto alla birra

)

with oven-cooked potato wedges. Of

course you can’t leave without sampling

one or two of the 15 Doppio Malto house

beers they brew here.

RODEZ

For some watery family fun, head

for the Aquavallon Aquatic Centre.

There’s a leisure pool with geysers,

waterfalls, a counter-current stream

and swan-neck jets, plus an area for

toddlers with a whole range of water jets

and a water slide. As well as swimming,

adults can keep fit in the cardio-training

room, weights room, rowing machine,

bikes, running mats and stepper. Then,

enjoy all the benefits of the hammam,

Jacuzzi, sauna and a rest area with music.

Admission is €5.25 for adults and €3.75 for

children; kids three and under are free.

PRAGUE

Still a relative newcomer, the

boutique Cosmopolitan Hotel makes

a glamorous impression, from the

uniformed doorman at the entrance,

to the lobby’s white marble floor and

mirrored walls. It offers comfortable rooms

in muted colours and a convenient

location. There’s the Next Door restaurant,

by celebrity Chef Zdenek Pohlreich,

which provides a modern take on Czech

cuisine as well as hearty, American-style

breakfasts in the mornings. Book an

executive room or suite direct and you’ll

receive a free bottle of sparkling wine!

RENNES

For something a little different, head

to Forêt Adrénaline Rennes adventure

park. They have treetop trails to suit

different ages and abilities, from two-

year-olds to adults. If you’re feeling brave,

you can also try out their new attraction,

the TrampÔforest, where you leap and

bounce on a giant net suspended nine

metres above the ground. As well as

the activities, you can climb trees and

picnic. A 2.5-hour session in the adventure

park costs €22 for an adult (14+). Open

Wednesdays and at weekends. Booking is

advised.

SOUTHAMPTON

As a major port, Southampton’s past and present is indelibly linked to the sea, and its

impressive SeaCity Museum has many fascinating stories to tell. One of them is all about

the Titanic disaster – more than 500 local families lost a loved one. In Southampton’s

Titanic Story you can find out about this, hear oral testimony from the survivors and see

a pocket watch found on the body of a steward and an original life jacket. Another

permanent exhibition, Gateway to the World, explores who came to Southampton and why

– from Roman traders to Victorian industrialists. Alongside this, the museum presents rolling

exhibitions – currently, We March On charts the fortunes of Southampton Football Club – and

a varied programme of events. On the first Saturday of the month visitors (12 and over) can

also take the clock tower tour, which was built in the early 1930s, and climb its 200 steps.
