Name the Place

If this rings any bells, please let me know where it is...

Warmish in January/February
Easy weekend trip from Munich (by air)
Photogenic city or scenery
Walkable upon arrival (i.e. no rental car needed)
Good wine aplenty
Suitable night life for 30-something year old single women
Tall, dark and handsome men*

*Nice to have

Yes, I volunteered to plan a girls weekend getaway and am looking for ideas!

First thoughts were Spain - Malaga, Alicante, Valencia or something like that. Italy or Portugal may be nice too but open to exploring any suggestions on or off the beaten path.

Nice or Marseille. I was going to suggest Palermo, but I don't think there's much of a nightlife.

Anon Expat said...

Nice, Monte Carlo, or anywhere along the French Riviera, could be fun.

No to Marseilles and Morocco. Not fun for a girls' getaway.

Anon Expat, do I know you from somewhere? :-)

Nice, Italy?

Anon Expat said...

No, I don't believe we know each other. I am always trying to find a good spot to go to in wintertime, so I will be interested to hear about what you decide. :)

Barcelona? And it's an easy city to get to. Even has a beach.

Be sure to check the average temperatures for the places you're considering.

Dubrovnik. Fabulous old town, no car needed, not expensive, great wines and interesting people.

Then again its not really warm here... and its not that close to Munich

I went to Sardinia with my girlfriends last may - It was awesome! I'm not sure i'd go there in Jan - although it is fairly nice weather - I just like snorkeling too much and I'm not sure Jan is good snorkeling weather!

(Was also in Croatia this summer - AMAZING place)
