I'm curious. Not so much for nightlife - while I fancy getting drunk, I don't see any need to plan a trip around it. Leaning toward Barcelona, Rome, Prague, no particular reason other than they intrigue me.
Not expecting much due to other things going on, but thought I'd throw it out there.
Just for your troubles, here is some hot ass.
Rome is fairly interesting, but the people there are completely insane, especially when they get behind the wheel of a car. Lots of stuff to see and do though.
Can't give you any info on Barcelona, but I have been to Madrid, Toledo and Cordoba. If you're into history, it's hard to beat Toledo and Cordoba. The Cathedral in Toledo is awesome, as is the cathedral inside a mosque in Cordoba. Plus Toledo has all the sword makers.
Here's something a bit off the beaten path though: Bad Gastein, Austria. Very quaint, good food, world class skiing, the world's largest system of ice caves, and decently close to Salzburg if you find yourself wanting a big city.

This may or may not be much help. You won't go wrong with any of those three.
It really depends what you want
If you want history -- Rome or London
If you want woman and relaxation -- stockholm or Copenhagen
If you want romance -- Venice or Paris
If you want to be bored -- zurich

Which one are you??
I'll add one. If you want to get hammered- Prague
That was supposed to quote the above post.

i have not been there, but have heard excellent things about Amsterdam.
I love Paris. But I'm a romantic so there you go.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.

The cities I liked: Rome, Barcelona, London, Istanbul, Geneva
Meh: Dublin, Paris
Barcelona is one of my favorite cities...been there 5 times....Prague is very high on my bucket list....
Formally know as SouthFloridaSpartan
I've been to Barcelona and Rome. Loved them both, but if you've never been to Italy I would put Rome at the top of the list.
The Vatican is mind blowingly awesome to see. Rome has amazing history, interesting neighborhoods, great restaurants, etc.
Plus, from Rome you are a short train ride to Florence, Naples, Amalfi Coast...
Dubrovnik and Florence
Do tell. I'm flying to Zurich in May. Not planning on spending a lot of time there, but thought I might check it out for a day or two before heading to Northern Italy and Southerrn France.
I'd lean towards Athens or Rome.
Barcelona is the best city I've been to in Europe. Fucking awesome.

Athens is the shit. The real answer to this question is the Greek islands.
Love Capri and the Amalfi coast.
But avoid Naples at ALL costs though. Trust me.
Florence is tough to beat, for the following reasons:
Amazing works of art everywhere
The Tuscan countryside is breathtaking
Also, if you are going with the wife/SO and have lots of money she can shop to her heart's content. (This is the last thing that is of interest to me but is high on the list of some)
Rome. London and Amsterdam for big city type things and sight seeing.
Oslo, Norway for friendly folks, nice looking women, skiing, sea food, the nearby fjords and just a great atmosphere. I could easily live there.
This. I am half Greek and have cousins in Athens, and it is a real pit.
The islands are amazing!
Gotta agree with this...
The small towns in Provence are pretty amazing as well....
Prague. Hands down.
I lived in Europe for about 2 years. If you want history, architecture, art, music, drink, women. It wins.
We were there in 2010 and want to return again. We're trying to work it out for this fall.
It's a beautiful old world city with great breweries.
