I believe the saying is quot;See ROME and die"; however, I'll take Vienna any day!

You know I like many places but I really don't think I want to "die for" a city

Okay, venice.

Or is it "See Naples and die"? A (very) little googling seems to indicate Virgil coined that one. I haven't been to Naples yet. Maybe better wait 'til I'm a lot older.

No Leely! Go to Napoli* soon.

Plus, only the good die young

*per my friend in Napoli, "Naples is in Florida, Napoli is in Italy"

Most definitely Venice! I see a lot of people share my passion for Venice -- it has gotten into my blood and I can't quite explain my passion for it...I just love it!

Although I had dreamt much longer about going to Prague and had a great time there as well as in Venice, Florence, and most cities I've visited, the only one that I can't stop going back to is Paris.

I'd also have to say Venice. It is visually striking, unique, and you can spend hours there just being. It's not like you see it once and it's done.

Lake Como in northern Italy is my vision of Heaven. We stayed in Varenna with a gorgeous view over the lake and spent three days taking the ferry to various charming towns. A particular highlight is Villa Balbienello which was portrayed as Heaven in one of the Star Wars movies. Here's a link to a few photos.

I would have to say my favourite place is Estonia. It's easy to get around, it's cheap, it's more exotic than most other places I've visited and the people really try to make sure you have a holiday to remember.

I've got plenty of photos and stories on my site:

I love Switzerland. Each area has its own unique culture and language. The alps are beautiful. The people are reserved but friendly and helpful. I have so many great memories of various places we visited there. I miss Zurich and would live there again in a heartbeat. So close to the alps. Then there is Lugano in southern Switzerland. They have palm trees! We went in a church which had one of the oldest frescos in Europe. Amazing. The Bernese Oberland was breathtakingly beautiful. I think Switzerland is often overlooked by American tourists yet it is so special.

Have you heard about Calitri in southern Italy? This town is not a destination like Tuscany in the sense that is as popular for turists. Calitri is a medieval village rich in history and tradition. visit: http://www.visitcalitri.com for great information about the town history.

Dubrovnik, Croatia and Kotor, Montenegro. Both are just so stunningly beautiful that I was gasping throughout the entire trip. The people are nice, the food is good and the scenery utterly fantastic. I've visited about 20 countries in Europe (although I'm working on adding more!) and Croatia is, by far, my favorite.

I would have to say Croatia and Solvenia. They both give beaches, mountains and ethnic enjoyment. Newly free countries on their own, I actually seen people dressed in native clothing at the open markets. Roman ruins can be found along the cost of Pula. Czeck Republic would be my next choice to re-visit.

To die for? Pere LaChaise cemetery in Paris, of course!
