2 week European vacation in July

Jump to last reply

Hi there, I'm looking for some advice about where to go in Europe in July of 2015. We are hoping to have a full 2 weeks in Europe, not including travel to and from Canada.

A little bit about us: We are a married couple in our mid 20's who reside in Canada and this will be our first European trip together. He has been to Portugal and I have been to Paris, Bordeaux, and London. We also have been to Haiti, Mexico and Cuba together. We are looking to go somewhere that neither of us have been before.

What we interested in:
- good, yet affordable, food and alcohol
- a city that permits bike + canal transportation
- cafes, bistros, markets
- fairly friendly locals
- historic architecture, winding roads, canals, etc.
- music (jazz, opera, indie, dubstep, electronic)
- warm weather, but not too uncomfortable for being outside all day
- vineyards, beer factories, culinary classes
- beautiful outdoor scenery
- maybe a historical museum or two
- some beach days if we are in a hotter destination
- opportunity for excursions to natural attractions (caves, waterfalls, beaches, etc)
- adventure (hikes, river rafting, paragliding, kayaking)
- we are NOT interested in huge crowds/line ups ... but could tolerate if necessary

Although we are enticed by all European countries, we realize that we need to pick only 1 or 2 destinations to really get a chance to enjoy our experience.

All feedback would be very much appreciated!!! Thanks in advance :)
