So i have some time off coming up and was thinking of making a (literally) lightning fast (probably 6/7 nights, maybe but unlikely 8 ) trip to somewhere in Europe. I know November is highly unpredictable weather wise for most of Europe, there are shorter hours, and many attractions are closed. That said, I just love being in Europe and can put up with some wind rain and cold. I've been to Switzerland in October before and withstood that well. With only 6-7 nights I figure I have at most time to see ONE major city. Dodging a week full of rain only days is my biggest concern, and probably the biggest challenge.
I'm leaning toward either Portugal somewhere, Spain, Southern Germany, or Austria/Hungary. I've recently been to Greece and Italy so kind of looking for something different. I'm leaving from Los Angeles US. I'd really like to experience the Autumn/Christmas markets, but is this time period too early for most of those?
Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome! thanks in advance.
