Top 4 Cities

Best 4 Places in Europe
10 years ago, December 14th 2008 No: 1 Msg: #57490  
My two friends and I are going to Europe, but we cannot seem to narrow down the places we want to see. We have decided that we will each pick a city we want, and then one last one that we can agree on. Rome and Munich top the list, and I was looking for any other input on a good place for three 20 year old men to have a good time and see some sights. We are pretty open about the last 2 cities on the list. Thanks. Reply to this

Barcelona or Madrid would be a good option, plus you can get cheap flights from either to Rome or Munich

Paris is a must for anyone that has never been Reply to this

Hello John 😊

You could spend a day in Venice, on your way between Rome and Munich.

I really enjoyed Budapest - definitely a young person's city, and there are bound to be cheap flights to/from Germany and Italy.

From what I have seen travelling in Europe, I liked Vienna, Rome, Budapest and Paris. These are some beautiful cities. But I haven't seen all the cities from Europe.

One of my friend (21yr) suggest me to see Bruxelle cause he says in Europe this is the city where he have more fun in all his eurotrip. Many other people suggest me Prague for the architecture and open minded people who live here. Munich was an excellent choice to.

Have a nice trip!! Reply to this

munich sucks methinks.. very snobby.
I would advise you to go to Barcelona, Berlin, Prague and Vienna. In that order. Great things to see during the daytime, great clubs at night (berlin having overtaken London as europe's party central). The most beautiful women in europe, great food in all countries and the beer is good as well.

been to venice once and it was disappointing.. been to paris several times and it wasn't too much fun although I really enjoyed just walking through the city.. lived in brussels for 9 years, it's exciting for a weekend but there isn't that much to do...

all personal opinions of course 😊

oh yeah.. how could I forget amsterdam? Great fun if you want to go out clubbing and experience coffee shops and a red light district first hand.

Cities I would recommend are:
Amsterdam, London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin and Prague.

Other cities worth visiting depend on the season. For instance Madrid is nice, not spectacular like Barcelona in my opinion, but mainly: it desert! And desert means it's hot and unpleasant in the summer.
Munich is nice... during Oktoberfest (assuming you like beer and loud music) and in the winter (good skiing resorts nearby) but for the rest of the year it's just that... nice. Not good, not bad (though indeed a bit snobby).
Vienna is another city, absolutely gorgeous, especially if you're interested in art/old buildings. Most people can only praise Vienna. Personally I cannot. I've been treated horribly there on one of my visits (Everybody started yelling at me in German after I politely asked for information), and have heard many similar stories from other friends. Of course, I might just have had bad luck, but I wouldn't say Vienna symbolizes friendliness. Reply to this

First time i hit Europe i made it a point to hit Paris. The city is just vibrant at all times of the day/night.
Rome was my other favorite, so much culture, history and sights packed into one city. Reply to this

Don't know if it's too late...but if you go anywhere near Germany, you should take a bus or train ride (pretty cheap) to Copenhagen! It's a really neat place and you can see almost everything in a day if you rush. Or you could spend up to a week here if you want to take it easy, but you can for sure do it in about 2 to 3 days. I'm studying abroad here and it's so nice 😊 Everyone speaks English so that will help you if you aren't fluent in Danish. Things are a bit pricey here, but the hostels are nice, cheap, and well located near the city center. It's got really good nightlife too, as this is a really young city, full of university students. If you want more info let me know.... But this is a great place to go that won't be full of tourists/disappointing tourist attractions. Plus, how cool would it be to say you went to Denmark?

For sights:
Paris, Madrid, Rome, Prague

For a "good time":
Berlin, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris - and if I could add a fifth - I'd second Adrienne's suggestion on Copenhagen. Reply to this

If you have an interest for ancient history no city has ever struck me as much as Rome, you get the impression you are walking through a gigantic museum.
Madrid and Barcelona are the perfect places to combine fun, and going out with cultural interests.
Amsterdam is also a great city, i thionk everyone knows what to expect there.

My favorites: Berlin, Prague, Budapest and Venice

For you - Berlin and Prague probably, although with Munich and Rome, Berlin and Venice might be better since Prague is a bit out of the way.

I am surprised to see so many people recommending Madrid and Vienna. I was underwhelmed with both of them. Barcelona I almost forgot about though, depends on the season but it was pretty awesome. Reply to this
