Zermatt, Switzerland. Matterhorn is well worth the extra cost to get there.
Lisbon, Portugal - Just a real cool city. Sidetrip to Sintra and don't miss the moorish castle ruins. Reply to this

2. people watching in Vondel Park, Amsterdam
3. Into Art? The Louvre, Paris/ The British Museum, London/ El Prado, Madrid
4. Architecture and design? Barcelona and Andalucia, Spain Reply to this

Out of the Cities (which are, BTW; London/Amsterdam/Rome)
- countryside or Brittany in France with a castle or two, to sleep at if in budget;
- the Mediterranean Islands: Corsica, Aeolian & Sardinia
- the Swiss mountains: Matterhorn, (as you have see already), Eiger (if you love Clint Eastwood), or Monterosa in Italy if you like food;
- Italian 'agriturismo', eat-in-a-farm, basically, and drink as well. That's the wine-lover ideal choice;
- Scotland highlands if you're moody and love ales and salmon;
A 4 weeks dream? Land in London, get wasted so you don't realise how much you're spending. Book ryanair flights to scotland, then to brittany, then northern sardinia/southern corsica. From there catch a ferry to tuscany or piedmont and get wasted again on wine. Via Rome.
Avoid trains, they are more expensive than ryanair/easyjet and stations stink.

If you love magic, Stromboli is your place but you might never leave again.
