City sound guides

City sound guides: your guide to sonic tourism

We believe that trips to amazing places shouldn’t just be about sightseeing, but also about “sound-hearing”, and that sound is hugely overlooked in the world of tourism.

This is our definitive guide to the sounds of cities around the world – the sounds to listen out for, and the sounds that will enrich your visit just as much as any of its visual landmarks. Happy listening!

Bremen, Germany

Chia, Italy

Essaouira, Morocco

Florence, Italy

Hamburg, Germany

London, UK

Malaga, Spain

New York, USA

Rome, Italy

Seville, Spain

Venice, Italy

Yangon, Myanmar

Each of our sound guides is either written by a local who’s given their expert insight into the sounds that make their home city special, or a field recordist exploring that place in depth to find the sonic features that set it apart from everywhere else.

We’ll be adding to the city sound guide series as we write and receive more guides, so keep checking back for more places.

If you’d like to submit a city sound guide like this from wherever you live, or a place you’ve visited, we’d love to hear from you – please just get in touch.
