Weather forecast for Europe, Paris, France
Spring time is great to visit, as the city is pleasantly warm but not too hot. The southern regions are nicer in the summer time as you want to hit the beaches. Autumn can get cooler and there can be a bunch of rain. The Alps and Pyrenees offer great skiing and January till February are usually the best times if you like the sport.
Netherlands - Amsterdam
Amsterdam! Who cares when you go, it's always fun. Nevertheless, summer is most popular, and if you want to see the tulips go in spring.
Spain - Madrid, Barcelona
The best months to visit are May, June and September. Winter times in the South are very nice and mild, but exactly beach weather. If you are looking for a cultural trip, this is probably the best time to go. If you want to do beaches as well, the choice is summer.
Italy - Venice, Rome, Florence, Milan
Spring is just beautiful in Italy. April and May generally offer mild temperatures for culture trips. In order to hit the beaches, you want to go from May to September. Autumn can be a bit rainy and not as pleasant and lasts from October to November. The ski season usually lasts from December to March.

Turkey - Istanbul, Gallipoli
Spring and autumn are the best times to visit, similarly as in Greece, the summer season gets a bit touristy and a bit too hot for most of us. Autumn is great for visiting the coastline as you get some pleasant temperatures and yet the cooling breezes of the sea.
