Prague, Czech Republic £50

Fairy-tale Prague with its ruby red rooftops and hill top monasteries is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Wherever you look, you will see historic monuments, bridges, sculptures, statues, palaces, cathedrals and olde worlde inns.

From hearty local specialities of dumpling, goulash and beer to a Kafka bookshop, astronomical clock and the sweet little Golden Lane with its colourful tiny buildings, Prague is magical. Hop on the iconic red trams for super cheap city transport that will let you explore even further. Find cheap flights to Prague.

Lisbon, Portugal £53

Spread across seven hills and incorporating an estuary, Lisbon has a great natural setting which is enhanced by its vibrant, cosmopolitan and creative atmosphere. This is a city that takes its evening entertainment seriously; start your night off in one of the cafes in Chidao, then head over to the Bairro Alto (Upper Quarter), which is the centre of Lisbon’s after-dark entertainment. Try the hip ‘Bedroom’, quirky ‘Pavilhão Chinês’ or the relaxed ‘Clube da Esquina’. Most bars close between 2am and 4am, but many clubs keep the party alive until sunrise.
