School’s out and for many families, friends, couples, your next door neighbors. They’re all jetting off on their Summer holidays. If they are British and have a thirst for sunshine, they’ll be travelling abroad, probably making the most out of their European passports whilst we still have the chance to use the fast lanes…
With our holiday just around the corner (who am I kidding, we haven’t booked it yet and it’s not till the end of September), I thought I’d pick out the best five spots in Europe to holiday this Summer. I’ve partnered up with Contact Numbers UK to give you the chance to win this essential Holiday Kit to take with you on your Summer holidays. I know, I’m such a babe. If you haven’t booked yourself a trip away, do it! Don’t let money stop you!
This is one place that myself and Sam are currently thinking about. It’s one of those dreamy Greek islands that’s known for it’s popular summer time party atmosphere and it’s stunning clear blue seas. You can get some great deals with Thomson Holidays both in advance and last minute. All the Greek islands are worth exploring and with over 6,000 of them to see, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Having been there myself, I can personally vouch that this city is beautiful and if you want an active holiday to sightsee, Rome is perfect. With streets steeped in rich history, there’s so many little B&Bs located all over the outskirts of the city centre to suit all budgets. Some highlights would be the Pantheon, the Colosseum and of course Vatican City.
Barcelona is another one of those cities where there’s plenty of sightseeing and with that comes plenty of walking! Known for it’s art and architecture, the famous Antoni Gaudi’s creations can be found littered all over the city. The weather is especially hot during the Summer with average temperatures hitting around 30°. TAKE ME THERE NOW!
If you want somewhere romantic, Paris is your perfect destination. A popular spot for many tourists, I cannot believe that I still haven’t visited Paris myself! The Eiffel Tower is that one landmark that I’ve always wanted to see in person and with so much tasty food and wine, France is the place to get your food binge fix.
One that I hadn’t even thought about until I saw another blogger go recently is Dubrovnik in Crotia. Known for it’s distinctive old town and gorgeous views, this city is fast becoming a popular tourist spot. I think this is also a place I’ve been looking at for mine and Sam’s holiday so keep your eyes peeled for a holiday post to find out where we decided to go!
