Euro Travel quiz # 37 - Potpourri

Jump to last reply

1- The Shambles is in this large English city - what city is it and what is The Shambles?

2- Trappist beer, a Belgian tradition was traditionally brewed by who?

3- What city is the Shroud of Turin in? (Beware trick question!)

4- James Bond spent lots of time at Piz Gloria in the film On Her Majesty's Secret Service - where is Piz Gloria and what is it?

5- London - What exactly is Big Ben - technically though in today's vernacular it means much more?

6- A famous french Cardinal built a town for himself and named it, bien sur, after himself - what is this town called and generally where is it?

7- The Grauballe Man is a circa-3rd century B C bog body that was uncovered in 1952 from a peat bog near what large Danish city - it is now on display in a museum near this city (think furniture!)?

8- Where is Saxon Switzerland? (One of the most gorgeous river valleys in Europe IMO!)

9- If in Florence you can take a short bus ride to this famous wine town whose wines are well known all over the world - you can tour the wine houses - what is this city rather close to Florence (official name)?

10 - From Nice a sweet train ride goes via this narrow-gauge railway into the heart of old Provence - nicknamed both the 'Ligne Digne' and the 'Train des Pignes - what is the official name of this railway (company that operates it - non SNCF)?

The winner wins a valuable price (plus S&H of $200!)

Percy as usual acts as arbitrator of both my flawed questions and correct answers - he is a stickler for detail so be precise!
