Hey ozpacka!

I haven't been to all those places, but here's my humble input on a few:

Of course, at the end, it really depends on what you're interested in doing (living, hanging out, sightseeing, arts, party, bars/pubs, restaurants, etc.). That will really drive how much time you spend in each city. Just remain flexible, as you start your travel, you'll have a better idea of how you prefer to spend your time travelling, and you can modify your initial plans accordingly:

london 2weeks - you don't really need 2 whole weeks. if london really interests you, then I think 5days to a week would suffice.

Paris 3days - you probably need at least 4 days in Paris. if you like the arts, then you might need more time, at least a week. you could spend a whole week just at the louvre!

Prague 3days - i would say at least 4 days

Vienna 3days - 2-3 days, unless you're really into music, then you could immerse yourself in the symphonies, etc.

Venice 2days - 2-3 days, especially if you're there w/ a sweet heart... i just think that despite the touristyness, Venice is sooo beautiful! plus, you can do the little islands off of Venice too.

Rome 3days - 4-5 days at least, there's so much to see and do!

Florence 2days - 2-3 days at least, especially if you like the arts, so many museums!

Barcelona 3days - 4-5 days, especially if you like to party!

Madrid 3days - Madrid has a few wonderful museums, parks and cool little places to hang out in Huertas, that could take you 2-3 days. but just like Milan, it's a place where you need an insider's tips on where to go and what to do, then you could spend more time...

hope this helps!

Thank for ya help mate..

Yeah, Im flexible as flexible does. If i like i place i will stay there, if not i will move on. Simple.

Ahhh, the beauty of not being on any time limits... although im wondering how hard it will be to adjust to that. Im kinda the person who hates to waste any time, yet on this trip, i would like to think that if it was a hot day i would spend the day just laying on the beach, rather than trying to fill my brain with sights.

Lets hope...
Thanks again.
