crackktheskyy:  There is actually a high-speed train from Paris to Barcelona, so you can do that if you really wanted to. I believe it takes around 6.5 hours. We were talking with people from our cruise who planned on doing that. So it is an option if that’s what you had your heart set on.

Europe is amazing, though, wherever you go. So don’t overthink it! I’m sure at some point you be able to see all of the places that you love!

crackktheskyy:  no offence to the other poster but June is not always too hot in June and London and Paris are not too crowded. The majority of June is term time for schools in most of europe so its is far less quiet than in July or August.

And June is the best month for travel in Rome and Barcelona as the weather is on average sunny and not too hot. The month May can still be dodgy for weather and July and August are the hottest months so June is the best. My partner has very pale skin and burns easily so we always travel in June. September is the second best month to travel in. There can of course be heatwaves which maybe the previous poster got caught in when travelling there but heatwaves don’t happen that often and any earlier than June can be dodgy weather.   Greece and Cyprus are too hot though in June

But I guess you can never book your holidays around weather as its never certain, it rained alot in Spain last August and last year it was snowy up until May even in places like Mallorca which gets snow very rarely. Right now in England its really cold so so I even have my central heating on, thats also very rare in Ausust – Englands ‘hottest’ month.

It seems that London is where your partner wants to go and you want to go to Paris so why not, if your going for two weeks that is, 5 nights Barcelona or rome, 5 nights Paris and 4 nights London. They would be easy places to get between . There are high speed trains – eurostar, and alo we have lots of low cost air carriers between european countries such as Easyjet (plane tickets in June but dont start selling until october/nov) start from only £20. There is also jet2, flybmi and ryanair. The places are all citybreak destinations so a few nights is the norm, two weeks all in one place would be too much for me in these cities

You could always return and do an eastern european cities with like Berlin, prague, budeapest e.t.c but it just seems that you would regret not going to Paris and your partner would regret not going to London.

Parasians are known for being rude but thats because their home is being constantly invaded with tourists, the majority of which don’t bother to learn a simple word of French, it seems you do know French so you will be fine. In general as long as you can speak English your fine in europe but its deemed very rude not to learn a few of the basic words like saying hello, thanks, please e.t.c

Also if you go on tripadvisor, search for a city, and then click things to do, you can then figure out which cities are most suited to the things thats you wnat to do

I have been to each of those places and I absolutely loved Paris. I didn’t go with my SO, but when I went I was really wishing he was there, it was just the most romantic place I’ve ever been to. There are several art galleries to go to the so much to do, and amazing food to eat! Many romantic walks and beautiful views. Paris definitely exceeded my expectations and would be an amazing place for a honeymoon in my opinion  All the best!

tails:  I’m totally not offended and I hope you’re not offended either! 

I’ve been to Rome and Barcelona in May, and I thought the weather was perfect, verging on too hot (Maybe I just can’t stand the heat because I’m Canadian  ).  Personally, I would have had an awful time sightseeing in hotter weather but everyone is different.          

I’ve been to Paris in April and June, and I much preferred April.  I thought there was greater hotel availability with lower prices, flights were cheaper, the lines outside the Louvre looked half the size, and just walking around there seemed to thinner hordes of tourists.  But to each his own!
