I went to Europe a couple summers ago and my favorite cities were actually the ones that ended up being cheaper (if i recall correctly): Vienna, Munich and Barcelona. I wasn't expecting much out of Vienna as it was more of just a stopover but it is a beautiful city and I had a great time there just walking around and checking out the parks. Munich was awesome as well, I really enjoyed the streets full of shops that had outdoor musicians entertaining all over the place. I could spend days just walking down that street listening to the different entertainers. There were string quartets, someone that wheeled a grand piano out onto the street, and an insane accordion player to name a few. There were also some awesome castles pretty close by that I really enjoyed, one being neuschwanstein which is just insanely cool.

my full trip went:
London
Paris
Amsterdam
Dusseldorf
Munich
Vienna
Rome
Barcelona

so if you have any questions on any of those cities i'll try to answer them the best that i can.

Flying into Barcelona then going to Sevilla -> Cordoba -> Granada -> Madrid -> day trip to Toledo -> back to Barcelona.

;-D


Good man, you're going to Barcelona twice. ;-D

Sevilla is nice. There are many nice hangouts and tapas bars scattered all over the place and in good proximity of each other. It sounds like you're doing the traditional touristy cultural towns. Cordoba is also nice. I've only been there and Granada once, but I had visited both during the Winter. There's some prime skiing territory in the Sierra Nevadas. Toledo is a nice change from Madrid, but I think Cordoba/Granada are more of my cup of tea.

Yep our flight is out of Barcelona as well so we gotta go back. I think I'm most excited for Sevilla. Just hang out, enjoy the culture and eat good food. :-)

I think Andalucia has that more "romantic" and relaxed atmosphere (or so I hear), more than the hustle of Madrid or Barcelona. Lookin forward to it.
