In particular seasons, the crowds and the prices and the hours-long lines for museums can make Europe's most popular cities feel almost painful to visit.

But you won't have to, now that we've summed them all up with the haiku, a form of Japanese poetry that's incredibly succinct (and incredibly snarky... please excuse us).

Amsterdam: A Haiku
Everyone on bikes
Can we take a cab for once?
That little green weed

Paris: A Haiku
Skinny pants and flats
Their tower lights up at night
No one talks to us

Berlin: A Haiku
Currywurst on buns
See the wall that changed the world
Beer, beer, beer, beer, beer

Florence: A Haiku
Carbohydrates everywhere
Gain ten pounds... why not?

London: A Haiku
Oh hey, Will and Kate
No one told us how it rains
Death by exchange rate

Prague: A Haiku
Walk on cobblestones
Walk across a long, long bridge
Not much else to do

Dublin: A Haiku
Guinness Storehouse tour
Where are all the leprechauns?
I'll settle for beer

Feel free to submit your own haikus in the comments section!
