France, Italy, Germany???? Touring Europe for 4 days after King of the Valleys

My wife and I have 4 days to travel starting a week from Sunday. We will in Wales for the King of the Valley race.

Anyone have ideas for a tour? Train would be best. Anyone interested in meeting to show us around or a meal?

Sincere regards,
Dave Cole

Would you be leaving from whereever you end up or do you have to return to the UK to fly home? That would affect the recommendation on how far away I would venture and still have time to see stuff.

If you've never been there - Paris is nice. Don't miss the Palace of Versailles - really gives you a look at how the French 'royalty' lived before their revolution. A night cruise on the river Seine is cool too. 4 days there would give you ample time to checkout the highlights.

I don't know if I'd want only 4 days in Italy, there is so much to see. Pompeii is a must, as is Rome. Even if you're not Catholic (or even religious) - the Vatican has absolutely magnificient art and architecture. Make sure you have long pants - no shorts allowed, even in the summer (at the Vatican, not Rome in general ). Florence and Venice were also very cool, but we didn't have a whole lot of time there.

Didn't do too much in Germany, but we did see Heidelberg Castle - that was cool. Check out Halogrinder's thread(s) on his trip. I wanted to go to Neuschwanstein Castle, but we just didn't have the time.

You may want to cross-post in GCC for more responses - it doesn't look like there is a whole lot of activity in this sub-forum.

Red face Dave Cole's European Adventure


Lots of great stuff to do in London

Maybe you can take the Eurostar to Paris for dinner and some site seeing, see attached pic. Fare is around $625 USD for 2 persons. Click here for tickets

You could head to Scandinavia, but flights right now are a bit high from London. Pero ya sabes aca tienen su pobre casa en Oslo y Arendal, Norway.

Wish I could go to the event Congrats on that new expansion!

But like I said there is lots to do in London, 2-4 days there would go by quick!

Have fun! Felicidades!
