Let's just say, for some reason, you were forced to pick one city to be a tourist in for an entire year. London might very well be your best choice. While London is more like the crossroads for, rather than the center of, the world these days, the city effortlessly manages to blend international culture with British pomp in a metropolis of 14 million (the largest in the EU). In one year, you'd probably run into a citizen of just about most every country on the planet (you'd eat a good deal of their cuisines, as well). You'd have access to the art and antiquities of both Britain and the world at the British Museum or the National Gallery or a host of other places, endless performances (including Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre), rowdy sporting events and exquisite shopping. When it rains (which is less often than most people think), tuck into a 250-year-old pub for fish and chips or jump on one of London's famed red buses. The tube and London's public transportation system alone warrants a visit to this worldly city. (Hint: Try Route 15 for a local's view of many sights: Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the Tower of London.)
