  1. I want to visit Rome and Barcelona. My sister and best friend have both been can’t say enough good things. I haven’t been to any of the ones you listed. I hope to go someday with the kids.

  2. I love Amsterdam. It’s such a beautiful city, with amazing food 😀

    We are going to Brussels this year. It’s another beautiful city with lots of history. I did a weekend visit once before, and loved it.

  3. I’m venturing to Europe soon and I thought Barcelona would be the city I’m not excited to visit. The more research I’ve done, I think Madrid is becoming the top contender. Thanks for the post, so excited for my European vacation!

  4. We have been lucky enough to have visited all these cities. Rome is really interesting but just so busy. Our favourite is Amsterdam and it’s only an hour from our local airport so makes a great weekend break.

  5. I love Rome for the food and history – can’t say no to gelato! Would love to go back to Amsterdam and explore more of the city. I’ve not visited Milan, but it’s on my list. These cities are perfect for a weekend getaway.
