Can anyone recommend some cheap thrills/fun things to do in France, Italy and the Greek islands?

Any cool places to see, fun activities, ghost tours etc... or just anything you enjoyed doing.

Cheers

Just walking around Paris is fun for me (if you are going to Paris which i assume you are)...go to the latin quarter which is like the artists district...you will stumble across some very cool places (maybe if you are into the arts check out the Pompidou Centre as well-very interesting place. Also whilst in Italy where are you travelling to?.. I have only been to Milan (about 5 times) Rome & lake Como about 5 times too (it goes hand in hand with Milan for me but the reason i have been so many times is for work..not that i don't like to venture to other cities!. In the Greek Islands you should definately hire a Mophead...it will give you mobility to travel all around the Island. I can give you info on the Islands of Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Samos, Evia, Athens, Paros & Ios...so if you know where you are going i can be of more help specifically.

Romeing Tours

Fantastic! Great tour guides and OPEN bars on the pub crawl portion.

catacombes in paris (underground graveyard, millions of bones).
Homers pub crawl in rome (you'll see them handing out flyers near the colloseum).

Museums! There are a ton of free museums in France and Italy. Even those that charge an admission fee are pretty affordable (most at least) For me, anything that's free is fun lol

Thanks for the ideas guys, we have decided to do the pub crawl rome(ing) tour, which sounds really fun.
Here is a rough guide of where we plan on going. Note this is open to suggestion.

FRANCE
Paris
Versailles
Dijion/Epernay
Lyon
Nimes
Anywhere southeast France that is cool
Monarco
ITALY
Venice
Bologna
Florance
Lucca/Pisa- somewhere nice on the west coast
Rome
Pompeii
GREECE
Athens
Than the islands probably a group that it is easy to get to the Turkey coast for a couple of days
Than a couple on the way back to Athens. I want to include Santorini somewhere.
Than back to Paris for 2 days and home.
We are going for 6 weeks so roughly 2 weeks in France, 9-12 days Italy and the rest in the Greek Islands. We are going from 15th April to 29th May.

Thanks for any suggestions
