I'm a single woman who considers herself really well travelled, well at least within Europe :-)
Guess I'm a city person, who enjoys walking city streets where every turned corner presents a whole new adventure, new possibilities ..... love the architecture and history of cities .... love sitting in a cafe, bar or restaurant and just watching the local life ..... love exploring the local cuisine ....
My favourite cities ? Budapest (my roots & fluent in the language), Vienna, Prague, Paris, Rouen, Rome, Siena, Bologna, Padua, Perugia, Palermo (well anywhere in Italy really), Antwerp, Salamanca, Toledo, Oslo, Bergen ....
But I really love the smaller towns (especially in France & Italy) way too numerous to mention.
I generally prefer small independent hotels with real character but have been "stung" often enough in big cities to opt for the "safe" choice of Ibis or Novotel, especially when travelling with folks.
