Where to go in 2013

Jump to last reply

Hello evreyone,

I am throwing this question out into the abyss and hoping that some Fodorites can lend some guidance/assistance in planning a vacation for 2013.

When lending this type of assistance, it is best to understand a little background.

Budget is ok for a 2 week trip. Staying in apartments or moderate hotels.
Interests are history, scenary, and culture.
Going for 2 weeks towards the end of September.
I have been to London (not a fan), all over Ireland, all over Italy (LOVE Italy), all over southern Germany (LOVED it), Vienna, Paris (once for 3 days and LOVED it), and Prague.

My initial thought is Paris for 4 days and then fly to Switzerland. My other thought is Spain.

My worry with Switzerland is that there won't be enough to do in Switzerland if one is not a big hiker or paraglider. I am mostly interested in the small, quaint villages of Switzerland. But is that enough to justify a trip? Am I missing more history and culture by not going to Spain? My worry with Spain is that the sites are spread out all over the countryside and a week won't be enough time to see it all without changing hotels every night (not doing that).

I still have things to see and do in Paris that I did not get a chance to do the first time around.

So I impart on the Fodorite's knowledge base to provide help for this.

Thanks in advance.
