Suggestions welcome for 3 or 4 day side trip in January

Jump to last reply

Hi all! It's been quite a while as Mr. Fan and I have been busy with the 'farm'. We will be returning to Germany to see my Aunt and Cousins - most likely over New Year's or perhaps Mid-January.

The itinerary will go something like:

Thu: Leave Home
Fri: Fly in to MUC, rent car & arrive in Kallmünz to visit family (likely around noon)
Sat: Family
Sun: Family
Mon: Depart noon to afternoon (not specific - just not 8AM) to ????????
Tue:?
Wed:?
Thu:?
Fri:? perhaps head toward an airport to leave from
Sat: Fly home. Could be stretched to Sunday if necessary, but we like a day to recover when we get home.

So, here's the catch. We're not really big city people. We like smaller, quaint, walkable places. That said, some larger cities have appealed to us if they had a fairly old, pedestrian, and compact center. For instance, we loved Rome, Venice, Salzburg, Strasbourg, Munich. We've also been to Paris and London.

Prague and Amsterdam would be two of the most obvious choices, but I was hoping for some slightly better walking around weather and hopefully a bit more daylight.

I hate flying in the middle of a vacation, BUT, if I can take one flight from Munich, Stuttgart, or Nuremberg, to somewhere close to a 'fly home' airport, that would be ideal.

Here is my rambling list of possibilities. Granted some are more time consuming travel wise, than others. Please feel free to comment on these or suggest another destination.

Lisbon
Palermo
Florence or Siena
Madrid/Toledo
Naples


These are off the list because we can't seem to get there or return quickly or cheaply:
-South of France (unless anyone has any hints on how to get there quick & cheap!)
-Crete (same as above)

So, where would you go and WHY!
Any and all responses are welcomed. I know everyone is busy and to take time out to type a comment is appreciated.
