Hidden Gems in Europe?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our 6th anniversary trip to Europe in April for just under 2 weeks.. We have never been to Europe before and decided to visit 3 different places while we're there. We will be starting in London, taking the train to Paris and then we were planning on going to Barcelona for a few days but I wanted to find out from any "seasoned Europe travelers" out there if there's any other place we should visit besides Barcelona?

I'm trying to get a good variety in without trying to be too zealous. My husband suggested we stop somewhere in Italy (my roots ;) ) but the only affordable places to fly seem to be Milan (I wouldn't really desire to go there since we're already going to 2 big cities) and Pisa (I don't know anything about the Pisa/Tuscany area so this may be a good option?)

As I said before, we're going to 2 big cities and I would really like to see a charming village area, maybe a beach? Something no longer than a 2-3 hour flight from Paris (about the same radius as Barcelona) and somewhere we could visit for 3 days and still see a good amount of what the city/town had to offer would be ideal. Some places we've been thinking about are Spain, Italy, Greece, Switzerland or maybe Ireland.. We would use EasyJet or RyanAir for tickets and are open to any suggestions! Thanks in advance!
