Doing a 5 day stopover before going to Israel this summer. Narrowed down to Barcelona or Monaco/Nice. Any thoughts on which way to lean? Would be staying at W in Barcelona or Le Meridian in Monaco. Cant seem to decide which place to visit.
Going with my wife and a 1 year old. Any thoughts would be great
Just remember that Mediterranean countries are hot in the summer.
Which is a better option for shabbos in the summer New Orleans? or Houston? and why? TY
As are cities in southern USA.

I wouldn’t recommend Petra for a overnight stay.
Why is that?
From what i understood seeing Petra at night is a totally different experience.

5 days is a lot for Barcelona imo. 2-3 days max.

I am going with my family from ORD-ZRH-TLV-ZRH in the summer and I am thinking of doing a stopover somewhere else in Europe before returning back to ORD. Where in Europe is it most recommended to go with 4 kids ages 11,9,7,4?

Would it make sense to fly from ORD-ZRH ZRH-CDG AMS-ORD and take a train from CDG-LHR-AMS?
