Hey there... I wouldn't let these guys put you off before you even started. I have been busking for only two years with my acoustic guitar and have hasd much success in Europe. With the violin it will certainly be different but ideal spots for you are in the main cities, promenades where you get tourists- with playing more cultural music than i do, you can easily get away with playing around historic parts of a city, churches and monuments that attract a lot of visitors, even on Sundays when the shops and things are closed and the cities are usually quieter. You could also play around the terraces and open air cafes etc in the evenings, play a set and pass a hat around? Places i have enjoyed playing in a lot (and offer some pretty decent cash): Corfu town, Northern Italy and Innsbruck in Austria, I think they might be fruitful for a violinist. I play mainly in germany which is ok but the economy is struggling, but still worthwhile money. Scandinavia is supposed to be pretty good (I will travel there in the summer) and Switzerland too, but they are expensive places to be also. Don't be surprised if people approach you and offer you a place to stay or a meal, that often happens to me when i play in new cities. above all enjoy yourself!
