Need sun: will fly. Skyscanner introduces this week’s summer bargains
Split (from £68 return)
As the second largest city in Croatia, this charming port is the gateway to dozens of islands that lie just offshore on the Dalmatian coast. Alternatively, Split’s main beach, Bacvice, is only a few minutes’ walk east of town and is surrounded by restaurants and bars. By night it’s a lively spot with partygoers often dancing until sunrise.
Seville (from £44 return)
It’s often said the Seville is Spain’s most Spanish city. From fiestas to flamenco, it’s a haven for culture vultures and offers flamboyance, romance and intrigue all in one beautifully blended package. A compact city, most of the major sights are within walking distance of the centre, so wander the streets and take in its 3000 years of history.
Venice (from £36 return)
With waterways as streets and decadent palatial architecture, Venice is the city that doesn’t have to try too hard. It’s a fairy tale land of canals and bridges where everyone, including the police, plumbers and postmen, travel by boat – making it the perfect place to get lost with a loved one.
Faro (from £59 return)
Faro is capital of the Algarve region in Portugal which boasts over 300 days of sunshine and over 100 sandy beaches. Popular with sun lovers, water sports enthusiasts and golfers, Faro is also known for its great gastronomical offerings, as well as its cafe terraces and palm-lined streets.
