    Besides for the castles on the mainland, Croatia’s many islands along the Adriatic are an undiscovered jewel.

    I vote Switzerland, with the note that I have not been to Spain, Greece, or Scandinavia, and that Egypt is not in Europe.

    I will suspect Egypt will give Switzerland a run for its money when I go in August though.. There is potential I might get to go to Greece and Turkey for 10 hour layovers, so we’ll see then

    I voted for Italy since I really fell in love with the country on my Contiki tour last year.

    I gave my vote for Greece, I love the history behind that place. Second would be France, then Italy.

    Tie between Switzerland and France (mainly b/c they’re the only two European countries I’ve visited so far, unless you count Heathrow lol! :P). I really enjoyed my time in Switzerland when I went, and was glad to visit lots of small towns in both Switzerland and France.

    My favourite by far was Greece! The history is incredible, the food was my favourite in all of Europe and their laid back attitude was just what I needed after 20 days touring from Ireland to Italy!

    For me its a tie between France and Netherlands.

    I am in no way a sporty girl however I fell in love with the very beautiful Austria.
    they have so many recreation activities – a killa bike ride (the views are amazing, the air so clear it helps you forget that your legs are burning), paragliding (OMG your crazy if you miss out on this – best photos over my whole trip) and an icy cold white water rafting (once again with amazing breathe taking views) and then there is the fantastic bar on site with a crazy theme party.
    how can you not love Austria??
