Fancy a brief break in the UK, some chic shopping or an artistic retreat?
Then check out our three best bargains this week and get ready for some spring sunshine; whether it’s daffodils in Edinburgh or the balmy blue skies of the Med…
Edinburgh – £66
Fly to one of Europe’s most beautiful cities; packed to the rafters with stunning historical architecture, pillared monuments, cobbled streets, medieval tenements and a skyline drawn in turrets and spires. Robert Louis Stevenson called Edinburgh ‘a dream in masonry and living rock’ and he wasn’t wrong. If you want to make the most of the spring sun, clamber to the top of extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, for inspiring views, or brave the blustery, white sandy beach at Portobello. Explore Edinburgh’s shadowy history through its castles and ghost tours, eerie alleyways and world famous Witchery restaurant. No other city of its size could offer more! Find flights to Edinburgh.
Milan – £80
If you long to see artistic Italian treasures or shop in some of the best boutiques in Europe, then Milan is the place for you. From Leonardo Da Vinci to Dolce and Gabbana, Milan is elegant and sophisticated, just like her local residents. Cruise the evening ‘aperitivi’ scene; nibbling on gorgeous food platters with champagne in hand then dance the night away in a very cool club after a long day in the boutiques. Let the avant-garde arts lure you into the world famous La Scala Opera House or visit the other mecca of Milan; the San Siro Stadium where AC Milan often play to a crowd of thousands. High fashion and hazy heat make a heady combination in this stylish city, that’s perfect for a long weekend. Find flights to Milan.
Barcelona – £76
Vividly vibrant and colourful, Barcelona is home to some of the most beautiful architecture in Europe. From Gothic to Gaudi, don’t miss the most famous example, the stunning Sagrada Familia. Not only has Barcelona some of the best buildings in Europe but its food isn’t bad either! For mouth-watering tapas and dishes that make even the French envious, tour the city’s dizzying selection of cafes and restaurants. If you can tear yourself away from the food, Barcelona has nightlife to rival New York. Get your dancing shoes on and party ‘til dawn, Spanish style! If the outdoors begins to call, Barcelona is surrounded by beaches and mountains, or why not take a leisurely stroll through the cobbled streets and soak up the art of Picasso, Miro and Ortiz.
