Big City with a small city/relaxing get away near by (1-week trip)

Jump to last reply

Hey Guys, my GF and me are planning to head to europe in early june and was wondering if we could get some advice. We can only go for a week due to work scheduling, so we decided to just pick one city/area and stick to that. We want to go to a big city because it is my first time in Europe, but also want to go somewhere relaxing and beautiful to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. I guess we are tryign to fit two trips into one, see a big city with the famous spots but also see something naturally beautiful and relaxing. I really want to go to London but I live in New York and feel it may be to similar for me and nothing really close thats worth to see. So here is what we came up with in no order:

1) Rome to Almafi Coast
2) Florence to Cinque Terre
3) Madrid then Barcelona ( big city but has nice beaches around it)
4) Paris to French Riviera
5) London to ?

Which one do you guys think is the best to do and feasible for 1 week. Also Do you guys have any other suggestions that fit our needs.
