I agree about Lake Bled, Im from your Europe – England, and out of everywhere in the world Lake Bled is where I chose to get married. Slovenia is the most amazing country I have ever been to but im not sure it fits with what you want as its more nature based and not so much museums, football stadium e.t.c kind’ve place

I don’t recommend Paris as its just not a nice city, Parasians are known for being rude, there is a high crime rate and it all seems a bit dirty. Check out the Paris syndrome, its basically affects japanese people as they have such high expectations for Paris and it just disappoints them so much when they get there they go into like a shock and break down.

The nicest part of France is south of France, like Nice, St Tropez e.t.c there is also Monaco which is a tiny country next to the south of france thats very well known for racing events.

When I first read what you wanted I thought of Barcelona immedietly, Barcelona is just beautiful and its also near the french border so you could spend 5 days in each.

Rome is also good but Sorrento is far prettier.

Im sorry but i dont rate London at all but thats probably because I am from England… while a lot of Europe has beautful weather in June (my favourite month to travel as the kids are in school, crowds are lower and its not too hot) England always has very unpredictable weather and I guess im just not one for crowds

Prague is an amazing city, as is Budapest, Krakov, Berlin, you should def consider those.

Greece for me is too hot even in June but is also amazing, Cyprus could be a good choice too but also like Greece is very hot

crackktheskyy:  don’t get me wrong, there is a huge nightlife in Paris too, its just more relaxed, and calm, whereas in Barcelona its very loud, and lively.

I did my study abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland and it was BEAUTIFUL. I loved how it combined the old (Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, etc.) with the new (museums, upscale shopping, restaurants). It also had a lot of natural beauty- I lived right behind Arthur’s Seat (it is an extinct volcano that people hike up for the exquisite views of the city). Are you traveling right after your wedding in June? That’s a perfect time to visit the British Isles. I’d combine Edinburgh with London or Ireland for a long trip. 

However, the most romantic places I’ve been in Europe had to be Lucerne, Switzerland and Salzburg, Austria. Lucerne is a gorgeous town right on a lake- we took many moonlight strolls down the canal. The fondue was out of this world. We combined that trip with Salzburg, where we took a Sound of Music tour (cheesy, I know) and explored the salt mines on an underground boat. Just thought I’d throw you a suggestion that wasn’t Paris or Rome…  happy travel planning! πŸ™‚

I haven’t read through all the replies so I don’t know if anyone else mentioned it, but my fiance and I have been looking into a Royal Caribbean cruise to either the western or eastern Mediterranean. The ones we have been looking at are either 6 or 7 nights. One leaves from Barcelona and goes through the south of France and Italy before returning, and another leaves from Venice and stops in either Croatia or Montenegro and a few Greek islands before returning. They may be worth checking out for you if you want to hit multiple places on one trip. Also, we are definitely culture people too so we wanted to go somewhere where there was more than just a beach there, which is what attracted us to Mediterranean cruises as well.

crackktheskyy:  Italy or Germany. Favorite 2 European countries. Despite being there twice, I’d go back to each country again and again, that’s how much they have to see and do.

I don’t know if youne mentioned it yet but it sounds like prague might be great for you! It’s a long way to the next beach from there πŸ˜‰ Otherwise, I live in Germany and think it’s pretty great (atleast to visit, I’m sick of living here lol) .. plenty of museums, culture, soccer stadiums,etc…

crackktheskyy:  we booked everything through expedia. We went to a travel agent first and it was too expensive. We cut the price in half by booking ourselves. 

Ive done my fair share of traveling and i have fpund that expedia has the best prices on airfare. What I did was I booked one way flights. I did NYC to Paris. Paris to Barcelona,  And then to come home I did Barcelona to NYC. 

Hotels we found really good deals on booking.com. We liked that we could pay upon arrival rsther than pay up front. They also had a lot of hotels that included breakfast.

I’ve been to both Paris and Copenhagen and loved both!

You honestly can’t go wrong with Paris. I don’t think you could ever get bored. However, I would also recommend hiring a car and heading out to the country. Seriously dreamy countryside. Lots of beautiful little wineries too of course! The highways are easy, and you have the added bonus of already knowing the right side of the road to drive on!

My favourite European city is Berlin. It was never high on my list of places to go but it’s incredible. It’s ancient and communist and modern. It has everything! Such a diverse history and it’s reflected in the range of museums and attractions. Great food, nightlife and shopping. Efficient public transport for getting out of the city to the more provincial storybook looking towns.  

I do love Prague, but I’ve been there three times in the last 5ish years (winter, spring and summer!) and it is always insanely busy. Can’t move kind of crazy. I find it most tourist crammed of all European cities. I do keep going back though…

Italy!! Although I am very biased since Fiance planned our holiday and proposed there. We did a 23 day road trip from Rome all the way through to Venice but if you only have 10 days you must must must do Florence. We could totally live there!

The food is amazing throughout Italy just be sure to stay off the tourist track. You cannot get more bang for you buck in terms of art galleries, museums, places historical significance and it’s sooooooo romantic everywhere.

I would recommend airbnb for cheap accomodation, we travelled the Brazil World Cup with airbnb and it was great.
