Europe Travel Suggestions
As we have a very large European contingent here on this board, I wanted to solicit some advice on travel.
The wife and I are doing a trip in Europe next year. We have a Barcelona->Rome cruise happening at the end of July, 2022. We're flying in early to explore Barcelona, so we've got the pre-trip covered. What we don't have is the post-trip. We did Rome/Italy back in 2019 so we're thinking of flying to another European city for two days (fly to city on Saturday afternoon, fly home on Tuesday).
What are the best European cities to hit for 48 hours, bearing in mind that this would be the beginning of August (your big holiday month)? We're leaning towards Amsterdam as my wife has never been there (I have, but many years ago) but we're open to other suggestions.
Another consideration is the cost of airfare home. From certain cities (Amsterdam, Paris, London), the airfare home is in the $2500 range. From others (Berlin), it's under $1000. Depending upon where we go, it may be cheaper to take a quick flight to Berlin or another city and then fly home from there, but that adds another level of complication. I'd be keen on Berlin but my wife has been to Germany in the past so I'd like a different alternative if possible.
