5-6 days at the end of my next trip....where to go?

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am planning a 3 week trip to Europe in late August through mid-September. I am set on the first 2 weeks (London and Greece) and that part is firm for a variety of reasons. I will be traveling with my boyfriend and cousin who have not seen as much of Europe (one is a first-timer) as I have, but I still want to see some new places myself (hence Greece). We have 5-6 days (not including travel days) at the end of our trip and based on flights from Athens and back to the United States (open-jaw), I have quite a few affordable options. We will be traveling by train if we pick a region as opposed to a city. Given the time of year (weather, crowds), what would you all suggest? We are in our mid-20s and like it all (history, museums, nightlife, food, scenery, etc), so I need some great opinions on where to focus (and please do not suggest adding the time to our other locations, we want to TRAVEL and see more of Europe!). We will have been to big cities (London and Athens) and beaches (Cyclades), so it would be nice to add something a little different. I also love train travel in Europe, so I am not opposed to moving around. Your spirited opinions are welcomed!!

Here are the options:
1) Copenhagen and Stockholm (I love, love CPH and have never been to Stockholm, what's it like in mid September?
2) Belgium (I've been to Bruges once before, but nowhere else)
3) Rome (I've been here before, but it's epic, and traveling with 2 ppl who haven't been
4) Switzerland (I've been to Interlaken/Murren once in July)
5) Geneva/Haute-Savoie
6) Alsace (via Zurich)
7) Milan and the lakes to Geneva
and the wild card:
8) Istanbul

Any strong feelings either way? I know it's a lot of options, but that's the part that is both overwhelming and exciting!
