January is peak season for holiday bookings, and for good reason. Christmas has just passed and the post-season blues are starting to set in. Naturally people want something to look forward to and this is where the holidays comes in. To help take the pressure off we have joined up with TripAdvisor to bring you the top 5 destinations in Europe. These cities are perfect for a Spring weekend break, and don’t forget, Valentine’s Day is only around the corner (hint hint!).
Taking the top spot is London. Renowned for its Houses or Parliament, ‘Big Ben’ clock and Westminster Abbey, London is a blend of English and European cultures. Currently a honey pot for tourists from all over the globe London has enough attractions to keep the family interested all holiday.
A word of caution. Turkey has recently seen many acts of terrorism and visiting the country should only be done with extreme caution.
This magnificent city differs from most of Europe, it has been influenced less by the western world and shows many signs of its Asian descents. Polish up on your Turkish history before visiting as the city is full of interest and excitement and there is much that can be missed.
Known for more than croissants and good wine, this capitol is a centre of fashion, art and architecture. Paris is the destination of romance and is filled with attractions to suit; from star gazing from the top of the Eiffel Tower to a campaign cruise down the river Seine.
Top Tip: Make your way to the Champ de Mars at sunset for a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower light show.
Known for its medical streets, colourful buildings and gothic churches Prague is quickly on the rise. Better still, it is said that Prague has some of the best beer in the world. Staying out until dusk is a must in Prague. As the sun sets light bounces off the church domes and the streets start to come alive.
They say ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ and we certainly believe that is true, this city has so much to offer and is rich in history and architecture. Rome has something for everyone from their impressive colosseums to the magical Vatican City. Rome is another city which has something to offer for the whole family.
