We've done our totally helpful as usual job in picking a selection of really cheap flights from the many to be found on Skyscanner to inform, or even inspire you for your next getaway. From Venice to Valencia, get away this May.
1. Stockholm, Sweden from £32
With flights starting from just £32, it won’t cost you money, money, money to get to Stockholm for a visit to the brand new Abba museum. Pay your respects to Swedish fab four - perhaps pack a sequinned jumpsuit in your hand luggage - and if the museum isn’t thrilling enough, there’s always rollercoasters at nearby Tivoli Gröna Lund amusement park.
2. Marseille, France from £32
The exciting, dynamic Mediterranean port city of Marseille is currently revelling in its status as European Capital of Culture for 2013. Visit headline projects like the ‘Museum of the Civilisations of Europe and the Mediterranean’ and the renovated Musée de l'Histoire, and once you’ve got the sightseeing over with, find a good restaurant and a good bottle of vin blanc.
3. Venice, Italy from £32
If you’re in the mood for love, then you can’t get much more of a romantic destination than Venice. With more artistic masterpieces per square kilometre than anywhere else in the world, Venice is heaven for art lovers as well as those who have eyes only for each other. A gondola ride on the Venetian waterways with singing gondolier accompaniment is not essential.
4. Lodz, Poland from £32
Lodz (pronounced ‘woodge’), Poland’s third-largest city, could be described as a ‘former industrial centre’. Don’t let that put you off. ‘The Polish Manchester’ attracts far fewer tourists than Krakow, Warsaw or even Wroclaw, but that’s part of its appeal. As well as Europe’s longest pedestrian street, Lodz boasts one of Poland’s smallest airports. Who needs big airports anyway?
5. Valencia, Spain from £44
Like Spain? Like city breaks? Been to Barcelona? How about hip and happening Valencia? Shop for something summery for your wardrobe, prop up a sun terrace with a cocktail, or extend yourself with a visit to the Ciudad de las Artes y Ciencias cultural centre. If that leaves you in need of lower brow stimulation, lose yourself in the notorious nightlife of Barrio del Carmen.
