    I'll be in Venice. I want to go somewhere else memorable. What are your suggestions? Two nights in Prague or One night in Dubrovnik, Croatia? Never been to either, but will be there in May/June and can travel north or south. Right in the middle of two places that I've heard are very beautiful. Which city is a "once in a lifetime" place to visit?

    I've been to both. Can't speak for the nightlife but if it's once-in-a-lifetime scenery you're after, Dubrovnik hands-down. The city, sited on terraced hillsides on a turquoise sea with stone walls and roads that gleam like mother-of-pearl (no exaggeration) was so beautiful that all of Europe contributed money to restore its red tile roofs which were damaged during the Croatian war.

    Canton Ticino in Switzerland, north of Venice, where my dad's family lived for 600 years.

    I lived in Prague for 16 years and while beautiful, Dubrovnik is a gorgeous city overlooking the Adriatic. The food is better than the bland Germanic dishes you'll find in Prague.

    Maybe I'm saying that because I lived in Prague and saw it everyday and it became passe, if you know what I mean. Plus I find Croatians are much more friendly than Czechs!! I'd go with Dubrovnik.

    Thanks guys. I've chosen Dubrovnik from your comments and other websites. Will have to visit Prague/Budapest another time.

    I was also in Budapest. I think I preferred it to Prague. (Given scenery versus nightlife.)
