I just returned from a month exploring Italy, along with a long weekend in Paris. This was my first trip to Europe. Italy was perfect and magical, so it's a challenge to force myself to go somewhere else next time. I rented a car and explored Italy at my leisure. Here are some things I enjoyed, and the things I didn’t. I also don't care about the price or cost of anything. If it's worth it, I'll pay it.

Loved:
Friendly Italians
Hill towns
Old Churches
The wine
Restaurants without English
Authentic Experiences
Getting lost in Paris neighborhoods away from crowds
Florence neighborhoods
Tuscany

Glad I went (wouldn’t go again)
The Amalfi Coast
Rome
Vatican
Pompeii

Absolutely hated:
Versailles (THE CROWDS)
Anywhere that caters to tourists
Cheap souvenir crap

Would Greece or Spain be similar to my Italian experience? I'm also considering the U.K, because I haven’t been before. Thanks in advance! I appreciate your input.
