Rank Your Top 5 European Cities

Having been across the pond infrequently, I'm looking for some manner to narrow the many options over there. We're thinking Dublin, London, Paris, Rome, and Lisbon. I've heard Prague, Krakow, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Brussels, Munich, Venice...are all great.  What are your thoughts?

 

If you could, please list your top favorites that you wouldn't want me to miss.

 

Many Thanks,

PP

    The Lake Como I'm familiar with is in Jersey, between Belmar and Spring Lake.  I'll check out it's Italian cousin, thanks JC.

    Paris (city of lights), doesn't get any better than this

    Monte Carlo (nothing like the mediterranean outside your bedroom window)

    Prague (fascinating to see and talk to people about how this city has changed from communist rule to a free society)

    London (listed 4 because I'm spoiled with my Florida weather...I don't like the rain...but this is a great city)

    Bellagio (not a city, but on Lake Como) you can ferry to so many different, beautiful places on the Lake...and the sights are breathtaking!

     

    Have a great time wherever you go....and let us know about it!!

    Prof,

    Would a non French speaking American enjoy Avignon? I just read a bit of history and it sounds interesting.

    Eidelweiss? Looks very pristine.

    For sure -- everyone at the tourist office as well as the hotels and restaurants I've visited has been able to speak English.  It's always useful to learn the basics of merci, bonjour, parlez-vous Anglais, and a few other phrases (not because they're essential but because people really warm up at the mere effort).  Besides the 14th C. papal palace and fantastic museum that dominate the city, you can walk out on the Pont d'Avignon (famous children's song from the plague times) over the Rhône and you can take day tours to places like Châteauneuf-du-Pape (some of the best wines in the world), the Vaucluse Valley, the Pont-du-Gard aqueduct and more.  Plus you're very close by TGV to very well-preserved Roman cities such as Nîmes, Arles and Orange.  In summer there are many musical festivals, and in winter (unless you can hit by the mistral wind) it can actually be pretty nice.  I drove there one Christmas from Dijon, where I was staying.

     

    Hope this helps!

Medal of Honor there, Mr. Dyer, and his name is on the Cathedral's wall), I had not thought of it as a favorite place to go. but it is a beautiful city.IMG_1111.JPGDSCN0144_0115.jpgDSCN0131_0105.jpgDSCN0034_0024.jpg

    Flew into Cologne/Bonn airport a couple times on official business, via Luftwaffe (yes really) passenger jet.  Love the city and it's history.  Wrote a short essay about 4711 and had it almost published.
