We're throwing it back today here @contexttravel to San Francisco's turbulent origin, the Gold Rush. From 1848 to 1849, the population of San Francisco went from 1,000 people to 25,000 (the group also known as the 49ers, where the city's football team gets its name)! This was all due to the discovery of gold within the city's terrain. Because of this exponential migrant growth, the city remains unique in its city planning, and has one of the largest Chinatown districts in America.  Learn more about the history of San Francisco on our Introduction to San Francisco Tour (link in bio).

The architecture seen in San Francisco tends to reflect the robust past that the city experienced since its establishment.  Set your eyes on the Golden Gate Bridge, the "Painted Ladies" Victorian era houses, or secret gardens and privately-owned public open spaces (POPOS) to learn more about this city rich with innovation and history.

Milanese culture and identity has been influenced as much by gastronomy as by fashion. Milan is a modern culinary powerhouse, attracting top chefs from across the country. At the same time, traditional Milanese dishes are not to be overlooked. Characterized by hearty ingredients, classic Milanese is comfort food at its best. #Milan #withcontext

Leonardo Da Vinci's famous masterpiece, The Last Supper, which hangs in the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, is known not only for its brilliance in composition but also its survival! Having lived through a French invasion in the 18th century and bombings by the Allied forces in the 20th century, it's impressive, and lucky, that the mural was able to be so well maintained to this day. #tbt #Milan #withcontext

Far from being merely a playground for the wealthy, Como and the other towns that dot its namesake lake are scenic respites rich in history and culture. Spending a day sailing the tranquil lake, with stops to stroll picturesque piazzes and take in the views from the Italian Alps, is the perfect excursion from Milan. #Milan #withcontext

Ciao and welcome to Milano! Despite its recognition as a fashion capital, its vogue exterior tells just a small part of the story. Beneath its surface lays a deep history that extends back to Roman times. Home to the renowned white marble Duomo, glittering Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and da Vinci’s The Last Supper, Milan’s masterpieces are world-class. Paired with world-class fare and its hometown Campari aperitivo, MIlan is not a city to be overlooked. #Milan #withcontext

Bavarian cuisine is largely stereotyped—pretzels, sausages, and beer are perhaps the most well known foods to those outside of Munich. Most Bavarian foods hearken back to the old farming culture, which tended to mean very heavy, hearty fare. Today, however, you may be surprised by cuisine in Munich where modern chefs have managed to put a new spin on traditional Bavarian traditions. #withcontext #munich

The royal wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig, and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12th October 1810 marked the start of the now decades long tradition of Oktoberfest. The one time wedding celebration has transformed into one of the world's largest fairs, which even includes an amusement park!

The Englischer Garten, designed by Friedrich Von Sckell, is counted among the most important historical gardens in Munich—and also happens to be the oldest public park in Germany. A stone's throw from the city center, this sun-drenched green space is filled during the warmer months with local Bavarians reveling in the warm weather. #withcontext #munich

"Brendan's tour was thorough, thoughtful and well-organized. He gave good summaries of parts of the memorial we were about to view, and allowed us time to go through individual exhibits at our own pace. We are glad to have visited this particular site with a guide, as it is an overwhelming and exhausting place. Brendan broke it down into manageable pieces and put them in an order that helped us digest the information and emotions. Thank you!"- Content client, Caroline, on the Memorial Sites and Memory: Dachau Day Trips tour  #withcontext #Munich
