Daniel Defoe visited the city of Glasgow in the 18th Century, and later, in his book 'A Tour Thro' the Whole Island of Great Britain,' he described it as 'the cleanest and beautifulest, and best built city in Britain, London excepted.' In modern times, a few days in this vibrant, cosmopolitan, European city, will prove that Defoe's words are still both valid and accurate.
