About the Brand
The 500 Hidden Secrets city guides are written by real locals who summarise their city in 100 lists of 5 addresses or facts, relating to food and drink, accommodation, shopping and culture.
The authors always try to go off the beaten track, selecting lesser known places, which have yet to be found by the tourist hordes.
In some cases, their suggestions include places and facts many of the cities’ residents have yet to discover, making The 500 Hidden Secrets the guide even locals count on.
To date the 500 Hidden Secrets Team has published over 35 guides that are regularly updated. Their website is also a travel inspiration platform featuring a nice cross-section of each of their guides.
Please note that all the addresses in their guides and on their website have been personally selected by the authors themselves. They do not publish anything in exchange for financial or other compensation.
