After a long, cruel winter, Europe is finally emerging into what is promising to be a gorgeous summer season! All its cities will have exciting things to offer travellers. Here are 5 places that we think will offer something special to sun-chasers:
A trip to Croatia really is the ultimate holiday if you’re into sunshine, sea, sailing and working on that tan – and who wouldn’t be? With incredible scenery, crystal-clear waters, beautiful beaches and the fascinating history of medieval cities, Croatia makes for the perfect summer destination. The generals and government officials of ancient Roman times apparently used many regions of Croatia as a place to retreat and live the good life after years of conquest and battle. Lay your arms down and have a retreat of your own on the ultimate guided tour to Croatia!
Just off the west coast of Greece, the island of Corfu’s mild Mediterranean climate is the ideal place to soak up the sun and relax on your European coach tour. Compared to other Greek islands, Corfu is a lot greener, the lush vegetation benefitting from the wet winters and hot dry summers. Dominated by olive trees, this is the ideal Mediterranean relaxation destination. Obviously two of the main activities you’ll be taking part in are swimming and lazing on the beach, but try quad-biking if you’re up for a little bit of an adventure. Take a look at your next Greek vacation!
Paris is one of those cities that will keep you busy all year round. But in summer – as in most European cities – the locals take full advantage of the city’s many attractions. The cafes open out onto the sidewalk, the parks become places to meet and socialise, and the city celebrates the warm weather with open-air concerts and other events. It will all have you revelling in the fascinating culture of this enchanting city. Fancy a trip to France?
Located on the coast of sunny Spain, Barcelona is blessed with incredible architecture, a delicious tradition of Catalan cuisine, buzzing nightlife and a strong sense of culture and history. Whether you’re strolling Las Ramblas, exploring the boutiques, bars and restaurants of Barcelona’s alleyways, ambling through the cities parks, marvelling at Gaudi’s incredible architecture or spending time on the beach, Barcelona will not fail to disappoint. Why not spend your summer in Barcelona? Find your ideal trip to Spain!
A trip to Amsterdam at any time of year is a treat, with charming architecture, cafes, bars and museums to keep you busy indoors. But in summer, the city’s open spaces become the ideal place to soak up the atmosphere and do a bit of people-watching. Stroll along the canals, enjoy the parks, or make like a local and take a two-wheeled adventure around the city on one of the many bicycles available for hire. The Queen’s Day on 30th April is also a great time to get out in the Spring sunshine and enjoy more of a party atmosphere. Tick Amsterdam off your list as you embark on a coach tour of Europe.
