Short week in Rome, Paris, or Madrid?

Jump to last reply

I know the question is vague and frequently asked, but I was wondering if anyone could help me choose one of the latter for a short 4-5 night trip in the middle of January/February. The flights are free, but only if I fly into one of the aforementioned cities. (Otherwise I would be in Berlin or Istanbul.) This will also be my brother's first trip overseas in 6 years, so I hope we make the right choice wherever we go.

Anyways, I've been digging around for the past couple of weeks, and I'm still undecided. My gut tells me that food, sight-seeing, and other expidentures in Madrid will be a bit cheaper than Rome and Paris. In regards to sight-seeing, my gut also tells me that Madrid lacks a bit behind the other two cities. However, if Toledo makes up for what Madrid lacks, then I'm willing to take the plunge.

If any members could toss in their 2-cents and help me out with this (grateful) dilemma, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a lot! :)
