I’ve chosen 2 cities from each country (Spain, France and Italy) and am going to tell the class a little about them. The cities are Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, ____, Venice and Rome. The blank is because I would like to list a city in the South of France with great beaches, but I’m not sure of one yet. Basically, I want to say about each city a few tourist attractions to see, where to dine and maybe some nightlife and/or a MUST DO.

Also, I’m going to make a bet with my boss that if I make an A on the speech, he will take me to all of these places for Spring Break and if I make anything lower.. who knows what he’s got in store for me!! lol

So help me out guys so I can have the Eurotrip of my dreams!!!

Nice, but sounds like he’d prefer Brest.

It sounded like you were asking for 1 other major city that reflects that country’s spirit, but also provides some contrast to the other city. If not Brest or Nice, then maybe Strasbourg, or Saint Tropez?

I actually did decide on Nice earlier today. But what I was asking was to hear about some personal experiences in ALL of the mentioned cities that may not be mentioned in most tour guides. I want to give my speech a little more depth. However, the forums are so slow here, I don’t really have time to wait for answers. But I’ve found travelchannel.com to be pretty helpful and I’m going to hit up Barnes and Nobel and the library Wink I’ll still report back here about the grade I receive and if I’ll win my European Experience!
