I dont know if you've been to Tel-Aviv but it's one of the best cities in the world for the summer vication. (and I travel alot...)
It's Sunny, People are hanging out in all kind of cultural events taking place during the summer.
The Beach spredes all along the city, for free.
The food is really great, and prices are very resenoble, especialy compare to Euro's....
If you are looking for shows, parties and so on, you have to know, in this city 1 AM is only the start of the evning...
Also I think the People are really friendly, easy going and stright forword.
