Barcelona.  You can fly from Paris to Barcelona for about $100 roundtrip.  TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!

 

Also, part of the trip from Paris to Barcelona could be on the TGV.  You could take it to Marseille for about $85 and it would take three hours.  Then stay in Marseille or that area for a few nights, go over to Barcelona, and then do the return as a flight.  I AM SO JEALOUS.

I owuld take a few days down on the coast of Spain/France/Monacco and give yourself some “beach” time. London and Paris vacations are full of running around and trying to see everything (especially if you havne’t been there before). Plan something in between the two cities that is relaxing – sitting on a beach, mediteranean cruise, something chill 🙂

Once you get over there, travel is pretty inexpensive between most cities – whether by train or plane. I actually love long train rides because it’s so lovely to see the countryside.

I did six day trips into London this summer (stayed at my Future In-Laws about an hour outside the city), and I still did not see everything I wanted. There is a lot to do! Though I suppose I could have squeezed more in if we didn’t have to commute in and out.

If you are a Harry Potter fan, I highly recommend going just outside London to The Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour. We spent an entire day there. It was amazing. I mean, we walked through Diagon Alley. Can’t beat it.

We did a long weekend in Paris (three full days), and it was wonderful. I could have used an extra one or two days there. I always have to brag about the bike tour we did – HIGHLY recommend. Something so darn romantic about riding a bike through the drizzly streets of Paris.

As for other cities – check out the Eurostar for easy train access to anywhere (though there is easy plane access everywhere too!). You could go into Germany, Switzerland, Amsterdam, etc. So many amazing places!

Three big European cities in 12 days could be a little overwhelming; I would probably pick a calmer place after the two first. Greece is great (love the islands), and Italy is wonderful as well (I would go to the area around Naples – perhaps to Capri?).

If you don’t want to fly & are looking for a short train ride (under 5 hours,) Amsterdam or Geneva are close and very beautiful places! However, if you are up for flying, my vote would be to hit up the Greek Islands, and spend a day or two at each one since the ferries inbetween the islands are super cheap and short rides.

@IUrebekah3RT:  You have to go to the studios then! I am definitely more of a Harry Potter fan than my Fiance, but even he had a great time. I think we spent six hours there. Well worth it! He agrees.

And if you go, you absolutely have to brave the line and ride on a broomstick with the green screen. So cool. And have the butterbeer!

Shameless picture posting – we are standing in Diagon Alley!

Amsterdam! Granted I haven’t been there yet, but I’m going in April and super excited. It’s a 3hr train ride from Paris. I can’t wait, it looks like such an interesting and beautiful city.

@IUrebekah3RT:  Barcelona is awesome.  Just read some stuff about it…and you’ll fall in love.  Have you been to Paris and London before?
