Please help! I can't decide where to go for my last minute vacation. My boss gave me some time off and I am trying to pull something together. The only place I've been in Europe is Paris. I loved it. I'm not much for riding bikes, hiking, or doing anything like that during vacation. I love to go to museums, people watch, eat at good restaurants, and visit historic sites. I will be traveling alone (i'm single, 34, American). Where was your favorite vacation in Europe and which city should I visit from November 17 - 25?
Thank you for your help,
Considering that you love eating well, visiting museums and historic sites, I'd recommend Rome, the cradle of Western history! Lots of absolutely delicious food on offer (probably the best in the whole world), as well. Furthermore, in November it won't be too hot nor too cold, maybe around +15-20*C in daytime.
Potugal's not bad, either. But if I were you, I'd go to the Eternal City - Rome!
I second lugosi's opinion on Rome. Combine that with Florence, Sorrento OR Cinque Terra, and Venice and you will have a good 8-day trip.
The other possibility is Prague (Czech Republic),Salzburg (Austria) and 3 days in Poland (Krakow, Zakopane).
Hope this helps.
Hi, if you love good food and historic sites, then Italy is THE place to go! November is not too cold, and with 8 days you could go to Rome, Florence and Venice...
Paris, Rome, or Florence, you really can't go wrong. Since you've been to Paris, try something new and go with Italy. I liked Florence more than Rome myself. I thought Rome was too touristy, but it was also the middle of summer when I was there. It might be better in the winter. All the food in Italy is wonderful. The lasagna I had in Florence was seriously the best I ever had, and I wish I found something comparable in the States :-). There were quite a few great museums in Florence as well. Have a great trip wherever you decide!
