Where in Europe for 15 full days from 21 Oct to 6 Nov 2016?

Jump to last reply

We are having a bit of trouble in actually going for a trip that we plan / book for! Original plan was Paris + South of France for 15 days in Sep 2016, which got changed because of visa appointment availability issues to Greece (Athens + Delphi, Meteora, Naxos, Santorini, Athens) for 15 days in end Sep-early Oct. That got cancelled because of work reasons. Now we are looking at new dates.

We are flexible about where we go in Europe although we do have some preferences ofcourse. I have been to Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg, Venice, Florence, Rome, Perugia, day trips within Tuscany and Umbria, Amalfi, Madrid, Segovia, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Barcelona, Paris, etc. I'd like to go to new places although I don't mind repeating a few places. Plus places like Paris deserve several visits. Husband has not been to Europe (barring UK) so anything is going to be new for him, although he does want to go to Paris, if it's a good time of the year (which many would think is throughout the year!).

I'd hate for the weather to be a dampener in his first Europe trip, weather-wise or simply because the tourist season is over and hospitality establishments are shut or ticketed attractions' hours are limited. Considering weather (rains, cold, daylight hours, etc), timings of attractions, restaurants and local businesses being open, etc, where in Europe would you suggest us to go? We can fly off on 21 Oct evening and fly back on 6 Nov 2016. Trying to see if these dates work for the Europe trip we have been planning for a while.

Kindly treat my 5 country tags as slight inclinations, and suggestions are welcome for any destination covered within the Schengen zone.
