How long will you be there for? I’ve travelled a fair bit around Europe, I’ve been to Amsterdam twice and wouldn’t stay longer than one or two days tbh as it’s very small and there’s not a huge amount to do compared to other cities.

If you’re not likely to come back to Europe frequently I would definitely visit another country rather than staying in France or the UK for longer. Rome or Barcelona would be my ideal choices in September as the weather will be great and shouldn’t be too hot. I personally prefer Rome, have been three times and it’s my favourite city in Europe.

Came here to suggest Amsterdam only to find others suggesting it as well! Darling Husband and I were there in April and had a blast. We also spent a few days in Belgium- Bruges specifically- and it was wonderful.

klr4589 :  I enjoyed my time in Barcelona and Italy. Depending on what kinds of things you see yourself doing, I’d recommend different cities. We spent more time in Italy so we got to see Rome, Naples, Amalfi, did a Pompeii tour, Cinque Terre… I’d recommend all of those places. If you want to sight see and like the hustle and bustle of the city then Barcelona and Rome are great. Amalfi and Cinque Terre are small and cozy and have hiking and beaches if that’s more your speed. Iceland, Portugal, and the Netherlands are on my list so I’ll throw those in there too.

We are getting married in Paris! we chose to offer day trips to our guests to champagne. It may be cool for you to get out of the city and venture around the country. I LOVE Amsterdam but also what about Switzerland!

klr4589 :  Are you going first to Paris and then London? You can head up north to Scotland after. A short train or plane ride from London and away from the city life to some of the most breath taking, heavenly scenery I have seen in my life.

The highlands are a must if you go travel there. Lots of nature, walking and stunning photo ops. Google Loch Lomond and Glen Coe.

Food is not expensive, locals are very friendly and some of the touristy parts (if you’re into that) is thousands of years old, the little cobbled alleys that connect one part of the old city to another is called a ‘close’ and are so charming to explore. The Edinburgh festival is in August so I would think September would still be good to go.

I would recommend Budapest! One of my favorite cities in the world. Very romantic, nice walks and cafés and beautiful baths with hot springs.

Ireland is also very nice! 

If you want to go to Italy Cinque Terra is amazing and can be combined with visiting Genua (lovely city), Milan, Torino or even Venice.

What kind of thing are you looking for? A third city (Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Bruges, Berlin are all good), history/nightlife/guaranteed good weather? Or something different (in which case I’d say the south of France or Northumberland (underrated) or Scottish Highlands.

Switzerland is also super beautiful eg Lucerne.

We took a flight from Venice to Paris for 2 for 80 bucks on easy jet.   We just got back from a road trip in Italy so I reccomend the beautiful country no matter where you go. Venice was really cool and easy to walk around

klr4589 :  My favourite place in Europe was Prague.  Dirt cheap – we lived like kings in 5 star hotels with limo rides around the place, on a budget trip!   It is an incredibly beautiful city, there is so much to see and do, and the food and nightlife was great!
