Hi,

I will travel with my girlfriend around the 1st of May but we have three options: Amsterdam, Azure coast or Istanbul.

Let me first tell you about them a little bit.

Amsterdam

It is a 7 day trip (3 nights sleep). First we would visit Munich and be there for 8h sightseeing and visiting Hofbrauhaus brewery, and then continue for Amsterdam where we would get the next day. The first day in Amsterdam we will be mostly sightseeing, take a ride in a boat on canals and we will visit a pub. The second day there is Queen's Day celebration. Third day we are free to do anything on our own. The fourth day Zaanse Schans and Volendam. In the evening we are leaving Amsterdam and going to Vienna. The next day we will spend in Vienna and that is it.

Azure coast

It is 6 day trip (3 nights). We would stay in Nice.

Day 1- Nice sightseeing

Day 2- visit to Saint Tropez, Cannes, Antibes.

Day 3- Monaco, Monte Carlo, Menton

Day 4- We are leaving Nice and going to San Remo and Genova and that is it.

Between those visits we will have some free time in Nice to do something on our own.

Istanbul

It is also 6 day trip (3 nights).

Day 1 - sightseeing and free time

Day 2 - visiting more sights, free time and in the evening Turkish night (a dinner in a restaurant and belly dance).

Day 3 - cruising Phosphorus

Day 4 - free time and in the evening leaving Istanbul and that is it.

What would you suggest me to choose? I like all three options and cannot decide. Thank you :)

I've heard Istanbul is great, but I've never been. Would like to go though ;)

The route at the trip to the Azure Coast and Istanbul sounds good. But the trip from Munich to Amsterdam and back to Vienna might be exhausting for just 7 days.
I would start in Amsterdam and go further to Munich and finally to Vienna. An other Option would be Hamburg ( e.g. Reeperbahn or Nivea House) instead of Munich and Vienna.

Thank you for advice, I'll have to decide in a couple of days.
