Barcelona! It was the last European City I visited on a short break and I found it fantastic.. Nowhere I have been quite captured the atmosphere there, not in Europe at least. It is a beautiful city that is easy to get around, is friendly with great food and good accomodation. I would recommend Barcelona over any other European City!

All the aforementioned places are far too touristy for my liking, so I'd choose somewhere less so, like VLC, OPO, BFS, TRN, SZG (a bit touristy, but the city itself wouldn't be busy during the off-season), LIG, FNI, etc. My next trip, after VLC, will certainly be LIG - a town considered to be the 'real France' and which is not - yet - spoilt by tourism.

I also recommend Munich. I really love that city, Olympic Park is nice to walk around on a nice sunny day.
A little off topic, has anyone been to Florence? Whats it like? I ask because I am actually going to live in Florence for a year, yet I have no idea what the place is like - I have been thinking about taking a city break there.

If you looking to go away and have a great time, the nightlife in Bratislava is meant to be awesome, and is very very cheap, also Budapest and Warsaw, easyJet got a sale on at the moment and all 3 destinations are £24.98 return!! Be quick though sale ends midnight tonight!!

You should fly to BSL from STN or LTN and then either visit Basel (lots of nice buildings, large variety of museums and other cultural stuff) or go to the nearby beautiful Black Forest in Germany. Or you can visit some parts of Alsace/France, it's a very nice region. What about "route du vin", it's a street that goes all the way through the wine villages and you could stop everywhere to try it out

RJ100: If Black Forest than please don't forget to visit Freiburg (at the risk of repeating myself).
BA757: It's a beautiful city in the heart of Tuscany, nice architecture from the Renaissance but less nightlife than bigger cities such as Milan. It's nice to climb on one of the surroundig hills and watch the sun set. I think, you'll like it there.
