Discover a secret club frozen in time since 1946, press the champagne button to summon the bubbly trolley to your booth, read the infamous list of house rules of a members' club hidden behind a door with no sign outside, join a louche club in the original dressing and rehearsal rooms of a theatre, sweet talk your way into a secret bar frequented by the Pogues and John Lydon, find a guide who'll squeeze you into an intriguing slice of Soho history that's only accessible from a door behind the bar, meet the members of the glorious Handlebar Moustache Club once a month at their pub, go for serious food at knock-down prices in cookery schools, travel back to the heyday of the USSR in a hidden Polish gem of a restaurant and much more.

An absolute must-have to finally enjoy the amazing hidden London bar/restaurant/pub/club scene.

newyorkAdmire an amazing apocalyptic pillar in a church, relax in secret gardens, view the New York version of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia, visit a secret subway tunnel, watch the stars through a university telescope, track down a statue of Lenin, have your skirts billow up at the very same grating as Marilyn Monroe, gaze at a roomful of dirt, discover an oversized Venetian palazzo above a former stables, visit an island that was named a sovereign country by a guy in a rowboat in 2004, play scrabble on Scrabble Street signs in Queens, see a townhouse concealing a subway entrance, locate a plaque to an event that happened in another dimension, have your bicycle blessed in a church. Far from the crowds and usual clichés, New York still reserves any number of hidden treasures for those who know how to wander off the beaten track.

An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew New York well, or who would like to discover the hidden face of the city.

milanDiscover a canal lock designed by Leonardo da Vinci as well as the secrets of his Last Supper, find out where Mussolini's hidden bunker lies, marry beneath frescoes by Tiepolo, visit artists' houses usually closed to the public, see exceptional private collections, admire the sculpture of a young girl shaving her pudenda, look for the boxers carved on the roof terraces of the cathedral, and so much more. Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, Milan goes unrecognized as one of the Italian cities with the greatest cultural heritage. Yet it only reveals its hidden treasures to residents and visitors who venture off the beaten track.

An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew Milan well or for those wishing to discover another facet of the city.
