Soak up la dolce vita in sunny Rome
The first rays of warmth light up the cobbled streets around the ancient Roman Forum and Colosseum. A leg-stretching walk along the river Tiber culminating in a shot of strong espresso and a spot of people watching is just the thing for spring.
Culture, shopping and sea views – all in one place
Explore Gaudí’s creations high above the city in Parc Güell before taking a cable car down to the busy port area of Barceloneta. Browse its warren of tiny boutiques and then dig in to a portion of paella while watching the sun set over the Mediterranean.
Live the Riviera life in the Côte d’Azur’s capital
Take a stroll down the Promenade Des Anglais, which runs along the length of Nice’s glamorous coastline. Indulge your artistic senses at the Matisse Museum and Museum of Marc Chagall before exploring the charming churches scattered around Nice’s centre.
Spring sunshine and Spanish flavour
Not just a summer sun hotspot, Alicante’s spring warmth is perfect for taking a swing on the golf course, admiring the views from the 16th-century Castillo de Santa Bárbara or simply tapas hopping around the city’s central squares.
Beaches, history and pink flamingos in Larnaca
Cyprus’ temperatures start to soar in springtime and Larnaca is home to some of the island’s best beaches and bars. To cool off, wander ancient mosques and forts, scuba dive the Wreck of Zenobia just off the coast or spot flamingos on its salt lakes.
