Interesting website for the island: ot-montsaintmichel.com
 
Is it easy to navigate around? Too easy, it is a tiny peninsula with very few streets. 2
 
Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Not many, and likely expensive. This can be done as a day trip from other cities in France such as Paris or Saint-Malo. 0.5
 
Best part of the island? The view from the road leading into it. Like many other amazing views the view is lost when you get too close. So make sure you take time in your approach to this fantastic spot.

City: Vernazza, Italy
Interesting website for the City: comune.vernazza.sp.it and savevernazza.com
 
Is it easy to navigate around the city? It is so small you can walk its main street in five minutes. Located with four other towns of similar size along Italy's "Cinque Terre" coast, it is easy to get around with the local train. 2
 
Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Not many. There was only one hostel in the Cinque Terre when we checked. There are a few hotels and some guesthouses. All are expensive, so consider staying outside of the Cinque Terre such as La Spezia, take the train in during the day. 0.5

City: Athens, Greece
Interesting website for the City: visitgreece.gr
 
Is it easy to navigate around the city? Not at all. This is a big sprawling city. It has long - complicated train and bus lines. This can be difficult to get your head around unless you spend more than a few days there. 0
 
Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Plenty. But watch where you stay as some locations are not going to seem as friendly as others. 2
 
Best part of the city? The Acropolis. It is the tourist highlight for a very good reason. Its central location is fascinating and its building ruins still take much of their original shape, creating an easy image of what it would have looked like in its grandest days.
