    I can't get enough of Amsterdam. I went there for a few days before the start of a trip to Germany, and I'm itching to go back. The gabled houses, the canals, the bikes (so many bikes) and the friendly Dutch people were amazing.

    My one of my favorite Amsterdam scenes was that of a "party boat" of beer-drinking locals blasting loud music, and riding up and down the canals posing as tourists took photos.

    Although I was not excited to go into the Red Light District, when I got there I found it didn't even look that different from the rest of the city. It was hardly as frightening as I thought it would be (granted, I went there during the day).

    The Red Light District isn't scary at night either, for what it's worth. It's kind of like what prostitution would be if it were a ride at Disneyland, to be honest.

    My favorite place in Europe is Paris. It's one of the most beautiful places I've been to and definitely the prettiest city I've been to. The mix of old and new architecture is wonderful; I stayed in a building that's older than my own country... how crazy is that?? And the Eiffel Tower is not something to be missed. I wasn't sure it would live up to the hype but it so did. The view from the top is amazing! I also really enjoyed Notre Dame (and the belltower), Sacre Coeur and Montmartre, the Louvre (I went 4 times!), and Rodin's museum. Highly recommended to visit in the summer as well, because the weather is amazing!

    In a European backdrop most people prefer traveling to Germany, France and Italy. But if you want to get a touch of all then try visiting Switzerland. Itís one of the best places for summer and winter getaways. Where people enjoy every moment of life, itís the most amazing place in the world. Iíve never seen it but if I got the chance to travel to Europe, I would definitely visit Switzerland.

    Ooh, I have a lot! Let me see.

    My two absolute favorite cities are Paris and Amsterdam. They're both absolutely beautiful, and I love all the great art and culture, and they both have a wonderful vibe (though very different from each other, of course!).

    Runners up in the city sweepstakes are Barcelona (fantastic architecture and weather) and Edinburgh (gorgeous and historic).

    Little towns: Eze village in the south of France, Burano (an island in Venice), St. Andrews in Scotland, Lucca and Cortona in Tuscany, and Rothenburg in Germany.

    And I can't forget about the Highlands of Scotland, which are so beautiful and desolate.

    You've left out Salzburg, Austria and the Lake Country near St Gilgin and Monsee. Also Middlested in Bavaria, germany. The most beautiful art on the buildings with the mountains all around!!!

    Aside from London/Wales, the only other place I've been in Europe is Paris- and I could go back every week.
    I was feeling antsy about my lack of travelling experience, so I booked a last minute trip to Paris over the Easter long weekend (friends/family thought I was crazy) it was the best thing I've ever done.
    I felt totally safe being there alone as a female, and it was the trip of a lifetime.
    I plan to go back with my husband this spring, and I can't wait to show him my favorite spots!

    North Italy is stunning, the Lakes are great in the summer and the mountains great in the winter.

    I think South East France is stunning, the Provence region is beautiful and the weather pretty safe in the summer months.

    Dublin is a great city and often overlooked, great for a New Year party!

    Paris and Barcelona 2 great cities and very cosmo if thats your thing, while London has plenty to see.

    For me though, If i had to choose a favourite, I would say Paris, the romance and ambience is just right for a weekend break, plenty to see, also plenty of spots to kick back and relax. Would go back at every opportunity.

    We once went inter-railing from the Netherlands to Vienna, stopping off at various places and taking small trains to interesting places, such as up the Moselle river from the Rhine basin, to Trieste. Loved Nuremburg, Salzburg, and of course, Vienna.

    In my Grand Europe Tour, the city I loved most is Paris. Itís the city of artists and a place for the traditional foodies. Best city with a nice weather; whether its fall or autumn, it absorbs tourists just fine.

    My favorite places in Europe? Well, the next place I plan to go generally becomes my favorite place for awhile after I return.

    Right now I am in Christchurch, NZ. The last place I went in Europe (last year) was Finland.

    P.S. Anywhere in France, Italy, Austria or the UK will do. Some places in Germany also do nicely--in addition to Finland.

    It also depends on what you want to do....when I was young, it had to be London ,Paris, or, these days, the capital of cool, Barcelona.
    Now I'm old, I prefer the small towns and villages.
    Anywhere in France- a quiet village with a good restaurant.
    A happy little town in Germany.
    Somewhere in Northern Spain....green, not too hot.
    Or by a lake in Sweden/Norway....just boating around.
    Swimming off Croatia's Islands. Snorkelling from a Greek Island, or a Turkish beach.
    Endless choices!

    Definitely Lisbon. But I can't expalain why. Maybe because I like blisters on my feet (=long distances). I've been there once (last September) and one day I'll visit Portugal again.

    My last comment (=joke) gives the impression that there is no public transport in Lisbon. I enjoy walking but of course there are more ways to travel in this city: trams, buses, 4 lines of underground/subway.
