Advice on a quicky solo trip

Jump to last reply

I'm onsidering grabbing a winter sale fare to Paris or Amsterdam for a mid-Feb trip. I am interested in flying to a warmer area in southern Spain or Portugal once inside Europe. Looking for suggestions on possible locations/itinerary to combine with Amsterdam or Paris. I'd want to put the focus on the Spain/Portugul part over the Paris/Amsterdam part as those are cities I will move through many more times. They would just be used as my connecting cities (which may require an overnight on one or both ends of the trip)

I'm looking for nice scenery, good food, smaller towns over big cities with a bit of sight seeing to fill my time. My Spanish is crap and my porteguese is worse so university towns might be especially good for the amount of english spoken in them? Just a thought.

I'd like to spend some time outdoors, being near the sea is always good (I know I won't have beach weather). I'm not opposed to renting a car. I would like to stay under 10 days including travel from the states. 8 days would be even better. I know this makes for a short trip & I'm okay with that.

**OR**

Or should I just fly to Bologna to see more of this area that I loved so much on my last visit? Easy to train around to several towns in the region. Cold, yes, but it would be cold at home anyway.
