Hi I’m planning to go on holiday with 3 friends in summer (June-August). We’d all be 17 at time of travel, and none of us have ever gone abroad without parents apart from school trips. To convince our parents we want somewhere fairly cheap and safe in Europe. We’d be staying for about 4 days. Our thought are either:

Paris
Rome
Barcelona

What do you think would fit best and why?

When it is about cheap flight tickets, try to get some to Vienna and Munich. They are great cities and especially vienna has nice places with fine architecture.

Geneva is 10/10.
Krakow is great, too.
Holland is epic, regardless of the part of it: you can cycle it all!

Ngl I’d avoid capital cities for your first holiday alone but try like Majorca, Tenerife or Malaga (Spain)

I definitely want to go to these places but 2 of us out of the group speak quite good French so that makes us feel more comfortable, plus we want to go to Disneyland!

Yes some hotels have an age limit but we've found quite a few which have no age limit

Ok, are there any specific reasons why, like have you had a bad experience yourself?

Of course, that changes everything! from this perspective, Paris is the best choice you can really make, so go there. Have fun!

Nope just because they’re usually cheaper and less busy than capital cities

Ah ok, luckily our parents are helping to pay (plus we are going to get jobs ) so that isn't a concern as much, though I'll take the busy aspect into account, thanks!

If you speak French and want to go to Paris definitely go there.

It's got everything you're after in terms of sights, but it's quite expensive, can be unwelcoming and it's not particularly clean and tidy.

By comparison, London is similar on the rudeness scale but it's much, much cleaner. There are also far fewer street hustlers.
