    Well, my only European experience was a night in a cheap hotel in Rotterdam (not what you are thinking, a flight got cancelled etc.) So I am not an expert.

    However, if I were to do what you do, I'd visit:

    1. Germany (except Bavaria.)
    2. France (Paris then the country side.)
    3. Englad countryside (specially Suffolk.)
    4. Spain (Sevilla, Mallorca and Barcelona.)

    it would be allot easier if you told us what your looking for.

    if you like cities with cultural stuff and with a great history and amazing architecture then cities like Paris, Rome, Firenze, Athens and Venice is a must but Granada (located in eastern andalusia) and Cordoba should also be very, very amazing "both located in southeastern Spain" (have not been their yet).

    if it's nature then you can find some amazing place near the alps, Belgium, Austria and many places in Spain, Italy and France. but you mostly have to ask someone else then me since it's not the kind of places I go to, I have been to allot but that is so many years back that I can remember the names of those places any longer. but the Garda lake in northern Italy is very pretty. but Ireland and Scotland is defiantly places to go if you are a nature man.

    if it's gastronomy then Tuscana is a must, have been there and it was truely amazing, great nature and you can't find better food in Europe (or that is what I think) haven't really been other places then that.

    Wonder if I can



    OK, the nicest place I have ever visited is Barcelona







    Then I recommend you Wien




    and Salzburg in Austria



    In France I visited Cannes and St. Tropez - both very nice places for foreign travellers...


    St. Tropez

    Another great place in Europe - Czech capital - Prague




    And if you want to see Zvolen's photos, check "Our cities" thread...

    EDIT:

    I forgot to mention Monaco (I visited it 2 times but it wasn't enough to see all its beauties)

    Some people were against a female name as my nick. Strange, don't you think?

    But no, I did not left only because of it. Don't worry, there is a brand new superhero who will save everyone. I just have mental issues and I am freaking disgusting.

    I don't know man. I love watching British mystery shows and reading British mystery books. Most of these are set in quiet and beautiful sleepy English towns, where life goes in a slow pace and the folks are cynical and suspicious of outsiders. It just grew on me, and I found Suffolk to be the epitomy of all that.

    Michal, is Wien Vienna or it's a different city?

    oh It's getting a little more difficult when you want all 3 things at once. how long is your trip.

    as someone already have mentioned, then Barca is really great, one of the best nightlife in Spain, and it have much of what you asked for but so do the other places that Michael already have mentioned and posted pictures off. the places are defiantly worth visiting, for my behalf I have been in Prague 4 times, and it was great especially if you want to see other places then just west and south Europe. I would defiantly recommend you to go to Greece dos not necessarily have to be Athen, there are allot of great places and you wont regret it. the people down there are some of the friendliest especially if you get a little way from the big tourist attractions. try to ask Yuko if you consider this and If I was you I would. they have an amazing nature, a culture you don't see other places and they also have the nightlife(not all places though).

    look at this link for more about possible destinations in Greece
    http://www.greeklandscapes.com/trave...tinations.html

    what about Italy.... or have you been there.

    oh and a little footnote about Monaco it's very, very expensive down there, I'm just telling you this so you won't be shocked when you visit that destination. It's quite interesting for a one or two day trip.

    My holiday is a range from 2 weeks to 4 weeks.
    All depending on external factors such as money, locations and jobs for the summer. But a minimum of two weeks.

    I think its certain that im interested in Barcelona.
    I think Greece isnt much of a plan yet, as im thinking of spending 8 days in France and Italy together.

    Im not too iffy about my nightlife, cause im sure where they are beautiful places, nightlife will exist.

    okay, 2 weeks might be to short if you should go to Greece.

    have you decided where in France you will go.

    So your going to Milan, if you have time then you should really pay Firenze a visit, it's one of the most beautiful cities. Really amazing.

    If u want Greece, take a ferry from Venice or Bari to Corfu/Zante

    Corfu is beautiful but has a crazy nightlife, same with Zante.

    In Italy there are just too many places to name.

    Take a nose peg if you're going to Paris, it smells proper bad

    never been impressed by Corfu, didn't really like it, there are many other places in Greece I would prefer before even consider to go there. maybe I just got to old to the crazy night life, it just ain't me any longer. I prefer to go to places where there actually are other things to do then lying on the beach and get drunk, kinda boring if you ask me.

    Ignore Mikkel, Corfu is beautiful It has lazy beaches, mountains, hills, amazing Venetian style architecture and so much culture. Corfiot people are great.

    I've also been to Athens, Crete, Rhodes, Zante and Cyprus.. Corfu and Cyprus are by far my faves, but Cyprus is a bit more of a trek!


    Gorgeous Corfiot sea..

    It smells bad everyone in France. It's not just the frogs themselves, it's the fact there is dog shite everywhere you go once you're in a big city. Goto Germany instead. Much cleaner and the people are generally more polite, if a tad brusque.

    And ignore Hamoodi and his raving about the English countryside. You want windmills and depressing weather? Merely head west into the Prairies.
