any ideas ?
My suggestions are:
I loved Rome for its food but not so much for the culture, but Berlin hit everything 'right' for me. Cheap, great culture and atmosphere. Food could have been better but couldnt complain.
I'd recommend Berlin too. Fantastic city that is often overlooked.
my main reason for recommending istandbul, aside from the architecture and the people, is THE FOOD. it's the perfect blend of north, east, west and south and almost impossible to eat badly there. best restaurants anywhere.
but aye, berlin is great too.
a few years ago I got a cheap flights to brataslava for a few days with my mother..............we loved it..we hired a car for one day...ggota train to vienna another day and the other few days we were around bratislava itself.very cheap and very friendly......
Bruges is fantastic, also really easy to get to on Eurostar. And if you fancy keeping active, cycling around the city and beyond is recommended - the route out to Damme is lovely. If you haven't already, watch the film "In Bruges", not just cos its a great film, but you'll also get a flavour of whats on offer.
all great French cities and easy to get to either by plane or Eurostar to Paris and then TGV - great way to travel
FB - I agree. I travel by train a lot in Europe and think it's a great way to travel. If the OP is interested in this, check out Rail Europe for tickets/passes and http://www.seat61.com for a good travel website that is aimed at people travelling by train.
Quite so Cougie,apart from the hitmen, it's a great city!
I like Bruges but I'm not sure I'd want to do 3-5 days there - you can see most the city has to offer in a day or 2. combining it with a trip to Ghent would work as that's not far away (about 50km and you could train between) - it's as good as Bruges but without being so "picture postcard" (fewer canals, slightly more industrial).
lots of good suggestions, Barcelona, Rome and Berlin I can recommend.Love Italian cities - Florence was superb (and you can combine it with Pisa), and did a 3 dayer in Milan. Both beautiful and easy to wander around.
Nobody has said Munich so i'll drop that in along with Salzburg. Both very interesting places and a lot to offer. Both only 2 or 3 hours away
Thanks everyone, they've decided to go to Berlin.
