destinations in february?

Jump to last reply

i am approaching a milestone birthday in february and my husband and i are debating a trip to celebrate. we absolutely love paris, but we've been before, so we're debating somewhere else... though i am all for returning to a city i love and am familiar with to make it more of a vacation.

i know february is not an ideal time to travel in europe, but are there some places that anyone could recommend in particular or others places that you highly discourage? i am not a skier, so ski vacations are not an option, though i love to see snow. we like food, wine and beer, art and architecture, theater and ballet.... and we enjoy spending 5-7 days in one city, with option for easy day trips. so we need somewhere we will have plenty to do for that amount of time. places we have discussed: seville, barcelona, rome, and paris.. perhaps somewhere in portugal as well. i would love to hear anything about these places (and more!) from your experiences in february.

any ideas would be most appreciated!
