Where to go that I can make easy day trips without a car?

Jump to last reply

I'm a 61 year old female who will be traveling alone. As far as Europe goes, I've already been to the Netherlands, SE Germany, and Bruges. I'm not against revisiting any of those places, but always like to try something new. I am planning to choose a main destination and make day trips from there. I need a city that would easily allow me to take train or bus trips to other cities or villages that are not too distant from my lodging. I would need cities or villages where the trains or buses take me very close to the city centers or areas of interest. I will likely be going in the fall. Money is an issue, so I don't want to go to places that rank high as far as costs go. I have been thinking of Prague, as some of my relatives came from the region, specifically Bohemia in the 1800's and it appears to be a lovely destination. I'm also not a fan of group tours. I have only taken one and that was to China in 1984, but it was pretty much the only way to go at that time as seeing as we were traveling with three small children, we didn't have much choice.

Any ideas are welcome. I appreciate your help. TIA!
