Hello Fodor's forumites. First off, let me apologize up front if this post is annoying to anyone, in that I know it would be easier for you to give advice if I already had a rough itenerary in mind.

Here's the situation in a nutshell: my husband and I are planning a trip to Europe that will likely take place July 26 through August 4 (8 nights, 7 full travel-free days) in celebration of our 30th birthdays. The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to decide on a destination. We both love to travel and want to go everywhere. Previously, we spent a little under 2 weeks in Rome and the Amalfi Coast for our honeymoon in 2011, so we've ruled out Italy. I studied abroad in Paris in 2004 but am interested in going back because it would be a completely different experience at this point. Other than our Italy trip, my husband has never been to Europe, so any place would be new to him.

I've spent quite a bit of time reading the Europe forum posts on here, as well as various travel websites, and it only seems to be making my decision harder. Just when I rule out a destination, I read a glowing trip report, and my interest is renewed again!

The places we're considering, in no particular order, are: London, Ireland, France (Paris and/or Cannes, Spain (Barcelona/Madrid), and Prague. I only want to hit 2 destinations max because that's really all we have time for.

So, my question to you all is: what are YOUR favorite European destinations? Are there places that, in your opinion, are more of a "must-see" destination than others for someone who is relatively new to European travel? Finally, are any of the places I named better suited to 29 year-olds without kids than others?

Any insight you can give would be much appreciated. Again, I know I'm not giving you much to work with.
