well, france is a place. i think it's a good place to go. and some pubs are nice, others are nasty.

what things do you like doing? how long are you going for? and what's your budget?

It all depends on your budget. I can't really help you out much here or give you any specific recommendations but this; You will find good pubs everywhere in Europe! Quite a few people I've met have an affinity towards the beer gardens in Germany. Good luck!

I really enjoyed the north of France - Brittany and Normandy. Brittany has a big student population mainly around Nantes and Renne. So plenty of good places there!

France-wise, I enjoyed visiting Avignon recently, which is also a student town so lively, and pretty and historic with it. I also remember Strasbourg being livelier than I expected it to be.

In Italy, Rome is obviously a must. I'm also keen on Verona - good for a couple of days.

For Germany, I've only really been to Heidelberg which is quite touristy but quite fun and again an attractive and historic town.

I think you should consider going to Spain as well, your money will probably stretch a little further than the three countries mentioned above. I've recently been to Granada and Seville which were both great - I think they would be just the sort of thing you're looking for.

Personally I don't think £3000 will be enough for 4-5 months without working - although if you were to cycle and camp it probably would be. You might find it tough working in these countries without speaking the language (I am making the assumption that you don't - ignore me if you do). One way round this that I can think of could be to work in a ski resort during the season. If you learn a little bit of the language in advance, there's always bar work etc..

prague is a cheap but nice option. Cheap alcohol, accommodation is fairly priced and theres quite a lot to see and do!
