Off the beaten path in London, Paris, Venice, Rome

I can't believe I waited this long to ask the MeFi hive-mind, but here we are. In 24 hours my wife and I will be leaving on our honeymoon to the above-mentioned destinations. What I'm looking for are some cool, unusual, secret, or just plain "local favorite" things to do and places to go. Rather than simply pointing me to other sites offering collected reviews of places (tripadvisor, et al) I'm hoping to get some first-hand recommendations from you all. Time will be rather short in each city (3-4 days each) so let's try to stay within the cities themselves, as we won't really have time for outlying excursions. To give you an idea of what we're after, my wife and I are both lifetime members of the gothic subculture, and she in particular is very interested in fashion. Eccentric bars/pubs are also favorites. We leave on May 4th, but feel free to contribute later in the week, as I'll be eagerly checking this thread for your suggestions. Cheers, MeFi!

Walking in North Yorkshire

I'm planning on spending a long weekend walking in North Yorkshire. Ideally we would stay in a nice pub in a small town and take a couple of moderate walks (~10 miles) each day and drink beer and eat pies in the evening. Where should we stay and where should we walk?

Help me find a good venue for a class reunion

I'm going to be organizing a pub night for my class from the grade school I went to at some point — probably in September or October. The best location for the pub is probably in the north end of Toronto, say on Steeles or Finch somewhere, and not too far east or west. Not being very familiar with that area, I'd like suggestions as to a good venue. I'd like a quiet and comfortable atmosphere, decent food, and definitely nothing dive-y or too bar-like.

Is Guinness Airlifted in from Ireland (or the U.K.) to certain pubs?

Last night I got into a discussion with the proprietor of our local pub. For years I have heard from various sources that certain pubs in the united states get their Guinness airlifted in from Ireland (or the U.K.). Now I don't mean specially airlifted, simply that it comes in the cargo hold of an aer lingus flight or some such to maintain the ultimate freshness. One person who told me this is my wife's (born in Dublin) friend who worked for Guinness. Now the proprietor insists this is not true and told me if I can prove it I can drink free Guinness in his pub for the rest of my life. I can not find any evidence of this on the Internet, can anyone provide any evidence for this?
