went to Munich and Venice this summer, both were awesome but would have done one less night in Venice, not a very big place. Lot of people I talked to in Venice however recommended Sicily, can't wait to get the chance to go there

Are we related?
Went to Lisbon last year and loved it. Great place, lots of history, nice people, beautiful beaches, great nightlife, not too huge, cheap as shit.
Copenhagen is great
Pretty much anywhere along the Mediterranean is going to offer potentially good value since all of those countries are in the crapper for the most part.
I would avoid Greece at the moment. A little too deep in the crapper.
Case in point - Gordes, France (pic below)
I'm also a big fan of the small towns on the slopes of the Vosges in Alsace - Colmar, etc.
Any favorites? Headed that direction soon...
Would agree. My impression of Naples from the train station was not great.
Also, taking the train to Sorrento/Amalfi kind of blows. Next time I would drive. (and you need wheels to get to Amalfi from Sorrento anyway)
I rented a small speedboat in Capri. It was awesome and surprisingly cheap. We spent like 4 hours blasting around the island, checking out different caves/grottos and swimming.
I love that city, and it has nothing to do with the coffeeshops.
Edit: But I'm actually considering Barcelona for when I retire. I still have plenty of time to think about it.

There is absolutely nothing to do. It is a banking town with a lake, it might be the most expensive city in Europe ( more so than London) and there are no women because it's a banking town
I'd avoid this city.
4 states of being in the cannabis society ------------
Which one are you??
I forgot to mention Arles - great market and Roman ruins including a well-preserved coliseum where they still have "French" bullfights in the summertime.
Heidelberg, Germany is a fun town.
Been to Paris, Strasbourg, Rome, Naples/Pompeii, Venice, Florence, and Capri.
If you're looking for romance, Paris.
If you're looking for amazing views and relaxation, Capri. Capri doesn't have nice beaches but the highlight of being on Capri was renting a boat with a guide, and he took us all around the island.
Barcelona is fun, went there a couple years back. Lots to do, lots to see (if you're into that sort of thing). Sagrada Familia is pretty impressive even if you're a stuffy old architecture-hating codger.
My recommendation: Paris (I've been there twice)
So I think we've pretty much recommended everything except
or places in Northern Germany/Denmark/Poland...
I loved Munich personally.
For price Prague is supposed to be the cheapest flights and hotels and beer/food
Vienna also deserves mention in this thread, particularly if you are into the arts and architecture.
Greece being financially in the crapper doesn't mean that it's not a cool place to be. Just not a cool place to live, right now.
Vienna. Hands down.
Also highly recommend Berlin and Rome.
Avoid Brussels at all costs.
Greece may be cheaper because tourism has been way down, and so many hotels/resorts are running specials to try and attract people. This isn't really true in Italy or Spain, where the financial messes in these countries have not had a big impact on tourism.
I agree though, no reason to avoid Greece.
And Amsterdam and Brussels are high on my list too. Loved those cities (especially Amsterdam).
Barcelona, the Catalans are crazy!
I've seen a lot of Europe, cities I've enjoyed are
London, Coppenhagen, Amsterdam, Madrid, Florence, Rome
I would avoid- Naples, Venice, Marseilles, Milan, Stockholm
Would love to go to- Prague, Dubrovnic, Krakow
I especially enjoyed Rome and Amsterdam
Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
Been to Amsterdam. Nice city but no reason to choose it over London, Rome, Paris and others. In my limited exposure I liked Salzburg, Austria which is smaller but has a great feel to it. How about Monaco? I'm sure it's beautiful and ultra-expensive.
