I feel like I can't say London, having lived there for eight years.

Aeolian Islands/Ustica, Sicily: The obvious Italian draws of food, drink and history, plus pretty unspoiled scenery, each island has it's own character, climbing/seeing Stromboli erupt. You could spend a fortnight there doing different things.

Krakow: Self-contained, pretty little city. Friendly and accessible. On the other hand, Auschwitz. Everyone should see it.

Paris: The usual cultural/historical reasons. Having lived in London, I don't find it overpriced/unfriendly/etc, and it's surprisingly easy to get around.

Budapest: Lively nightlife, architecture, the Rudas and Gellert baths are like something from a different world and time.

Glastonbury Festival: Look, I've been there as many times as I've been anywhere else on me summer holidays in the last 10 years, okay?

I'd go for Krakow and Budapest too.

I have a fierce grá for Nuremberg (great history, beer, lovely people, incredibly easy to get around and cheap), but having lived there, I guess that's cheating.


My other 5 would be:
Rome: The history alone swings it for me, it's incomparable.
Granada: History, food, craic.
Vienna: You feel underdressed walking around the streets. Absolutely beautiful.

Berlin - coolest city on the planet.
Budapest - Beautiful, subtle and very relaxed.
Tuscany - Gorgeous countryside, cities (especially Siena) and food. And wine.
Edinburgh - Best looking city in these islands. Great craic.
London - Is it possible to run out of things to do in The London? (there's always Sanders's wan, like)

I think I should throw Madrid into the mix here.

Was there for a few days during the summer and had a great time. Massively underrated city and I think I prefer it to Barcelona.
