2 weeks in September from Vienna

Jump to last reply

My brother lives in Vienna so each time I go to Europe I stop in for a week to catch up... this is nice but it means that all my trips start or finish here. We like to do as much of our travel by train as possible... after 24 hours on a plane to get to europe the last thing I want to do is get on another plane... and we both really love train travel.

Last year we had 2 months and toured all the big cities ie London, Paris, Munich, Amsterdam and I have also spent a month in Italy.

This time I want to go somewhere different and I have read pages and pages but I can not make up my mind so here I am. I seem to have got to a shortlist of 3 destinations. We dont want to do all three - we prefer 1 of these only.

1. Croatia/ Slovenia
2. Switzerland and the top of Italy (Milan/Lakes)
3. Spain

We are a couple in our late 40's travelling without kids this time. We like photography and culture and food and prefer family run small hotels or bnbs or even great hostels to chain hotels We dont really do hikes or adventure sports cause of a knee problem. We can walk for hours but no climbing

We will have the whole of September... where would you go? I Hope this post does not annoy those who think I should do my own research... I am just so unsure this time and would love any help.
