My fiance and I are looking for suggestions for travel destinations to Europe in early April ( we are purposefully skipping the holy week festivities and business, thank you!). We are relatively active, enjoying hiking and biking. However, we want to combine that energy with relaxing, touring historic sites and museums, and enjoying good food and local company. I have spent a good amount of time in Andalucia and the rest of Spain, and I solo traveled Italy about 10 years ago (Rome and Florence). He has been to London only. Does anyone have suggestions? I am thinking Italy combined with Croatia. We had also considered the Netherlands for their superb bike trails, but we are afraid it may be a little cold (50s, which is chilly for we southerners).
Thanks so much!
