Where in Europe would you go to escape midwestern winter?

Jump to last reply

We are a retired couple who Is considering a month in Europe to get away from a brutal winter such as last year in Minnesota.. Probably Feb or March. Yes, I know we could go to FL or AZ, but we love Europe. We have visited many of the cities we are considering, but that is not a problem. We would rent an apartment and probably do some side trips. Would prefer a city so we can use public transportation and would travel by train for overnights. Not really interested in renting a car. The warmer climates of Rome, Barcelona or Athens are appealing; but, then there is always the allure of Paris. By staying a month we would clearly be trying to live like a local and not be the museum stalkers we usually are on a daily basis, so there has to be something cheap, but interesting to grab our attention during many of the daytime hours. We do not have unlimited funds, but will certainly take advantage of much our home away from home offers.
