I'm not sure about the herrings, but the earlier thought might be worth pursuing.

Not Parthenon, not Athens, not Greece.
Grapes are a clue. Piccy has one give-away clue in it.

RegDep,

i thought your earlier thoughts were getting you there very quickly. You're going from warm to cold.

Not Lebanon. Not anywhere South or South east of med.

Not Paris, not France. It's an unusual shot of a (very?) famous building in Europe.

I give up. Are there any other very famous buildings in Europe than St. George's Hall in Liverpool?
