There's no better way to discover a new place when travelling than by completely immersing yourself in the culture and spending a good chunk of time there. Whether that's going way back and discovering the history of a place, finding the best food and drink trails around, getting to now the monuments, or taking everything in by foot, you're sure to become a bit of an expert!
