This is my favourite café/workspace place. The staff is super friendly and competent. The space has a nice interior and you can order a coffeepot and stick around for a while. In the warm months you can enjoy sunbeds outside
The best magazine store in London! MagCulture stocks around 600 independent magazines from all over the world. They always have the latest issue of everything and you will ALWAYS find something you've never heard of before. Make sure you visit on PAY-DAY, as there is a good chance you'll walk away with a delicious new publication.
Minimalist Bar with a pleasantly dark atmosphere in the 5th district. Exceptionally good espresso and equally good cocktails. Drinks are made with love and passion. In addition, smaller, freshly prepared Italian snacks such as tramezzini are also served. Nice music. Family atmosphere.
If you are in need of a moment of solitude, this is the place. On my first visit I was in awe of how time seemed to stand still inside. It has now become a sanctuary from the city when I need the pace of life to slow down.
La Specola is one of my favourite museums I have ever visited. The museum is a branch of the Natural History Museum of the University of Florence and is one of the oldest science museums in Europe, built in 1775 with the aim of gathering the natural treasures collected by different generations of the Medici family, such as fossils, animals, minerals and exotic plants. You really have to go. The displays are stunning and odd, also the Zoological Collection is full of specimens and old taxidermy pieces. On top of that there is also a quite "scary" collection of about 1,400 pieces of anatomical waxworks (made between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century).

Inga Wilkens (b. 1987) is a painter living and working between Hamburg, Berlin and Munich, Germany.
Originally from a small artist village named Fischerhude in Northern Germany, art was all around her when she grew up. Fascinated from an early age by Impressionism and the aesthetic values of Zen, her intuitive use of color and arresting play with shadow strives for simplicity and lucidity. Her oil and acrylic paintings hover towards abstraction and minimalism, yet breathe the clean air and convey the meditative silence stemming from a deeply felt connection with nature. Her works evoke the earthliness of colors or the proximity of a clear night sky, a sense of freedom one only finds in the essence of things. Inga does not so much pre-compose her paintings; she rather creates them intuitively, as spontaneous reactions to the present moment. Her practice values process and embraces the chaotic, yet always maintains a compositional centeredness that never makes her works feel out of balance.
