Glasgow, the top 6 things to do and see in two days in the Scotland largest city

Glasgow is such a vibrant city that surprises the tourists for its design, culture, art and nightlife. If it is impossible to avoid the classic topic “better Glasgow or Edinburgh“, my thought is very easy:”both!“.

Having said that, these are my personal suggestions about the top 6 things to do and see in Glasgow in a couple of days (or even more).   1 – Explore Glasgow centre The lively city centre boasts some interesting buildings not to be missed in, they represent...
