US Airways destination for a long weekend?

I've got an unused US Airways ticket that I'd like to exchange for a ticket to somewhere in Europe. I live in Chicago, so I understand I have to connect through Pittsburgh, Charlotte or Philadelphia. But where to go? I'm tempted to go to Paris again (I'm ALWAYS tempted to go to Paris!) but I'd like your feedback on other destinations US Airways serves. Given that I don't have a weekend picked out, or a fixed length of stay, I'm open to all sorts of opinions. Thanks!

Can you give us an idea of European destinations that US Air serves from Philly, Pitts. or Charlotte?

I've narrowed it down to Madrid, Rome, Paris, Brussels or Amsterdam. For a long weekend!

Paris, hands down. So easy to take in so much in a short period of time, particularly if you are the least bit familiar with the city.

I love Paris, and always that is my first choice....but if you are looking for a change, I'd vote Rome if earlier spring or Amsterdam if later spring. Rome (like Paris) has such a wealth of things to see, museums, just the fact of being in such a place. Amsterdam, in late spring, has those glorious fields of flowers, wonderful museums, and the canal houses to see.

I would opt for London.

I'd try Brussels, just because I've never been there and I've recently gotten acquainted with several delightful Belgians.

Fly into Brussles and then catch the train to Brugge for a weekend you will never forget!

I vote for Amsterdam, esp since you've beent to Paris. It seems to me you could see quite a bit in a short time, except for tulips.
