Cities are best discovered when the weather is cooler, so there’s no more agreeable time than spring to explore Europe’s top urban destinations. Indeed, as a general rule of thumb, the higher the temperature, the higher the price when it comes to European destinations, so travelling in April and May can actually help keep your costs right down. Here is our pick of the three best cities to explore over a few days in the springtime:


Rome is a city that ticks all the boxes - with its beauty, atmosphere, culture, food and fascinating past. It is one of the more affordable European destinations cities too, and if you travel mid-week, you should be able to pick up a bargain flight and accommodation package. Wander the ancient streets by day, then relax at one in one of the innumerable cafes and restaurants, savour a glass of fine Italian wine and just watch the world go by.


Paris is one of the most accessible of the European cities from here in the UK, and it is also one of the most stunning. Indeed, it is even easier to reach these days, with the high speed rail link that starts from London’s recently refurbished (and now highly impressive) St. Pancras International. There are many very good reasons to love ‘Paris in the spring time’ (as immortalised by Ella Fitzgerald). Admittedly, Paris is one of the most expensive cities in Europe, but it is still possible to get a good deal if you shop around. Package deals are often the best way to cut costs, and can make life a bit simpler too. Before your departure date, remember to check online and see if booking entry to major sights - such as the Eiffel Tower is cheaper in advance - (it almost always will be an you can shave a significant number of Euro from your holiday spending money with a bit of pre-planning).


Bohemian Prague really does have something for everyone. This ‘City of Golden Spires’ is a uniquely attractive city, with its gorgeous old churches, quirky markets, beautiful riverside parks and stunning vistas that take in the breath-taking variety of the architecture . A camera is a must as you will see sight after sight that is a photographer’s dream. Although not as cheap as it once was, it is still perfectly possible to secure a good deal both on flight and accommodation in Prague - and many visitors feel that the slightly increased cost is a price worth seeing to stay in this inspiring, ever changing city. It can get pretty chilly in Prague at this time of year - particularly at night - so make sure you bear this in mind when packing.
