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.

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.
