If sweltering city sightseeing jostling with tourists isn’t for you, you might want to consider jetting off in spring to avoid the summer crowds. We recommend these top city breaks;
- Prague, Czech Republic
For architecture, history and culture, Prague is by far one of the most beautiful and impressive cities in Europe. Prague is usually at its busiest during the summer months, so we suggest visiting in the late spring. Aside from the sightseeing, Prague is also famous for its unforgettable nightlife. If you’re away with friends and fancy a night of clubbing, head down to Cross Club, Double Trouble or 7 Vlků.

- Rome, Italy
From impressive Roman ruins to historical architecture and an artistic flair, Rome is a destination which is bound to leave a lasting impression. Interestingly, Rome celebrates its birthday on April 21st by throwing a huge party with fireworks, fancy dress and light shows; all very exciting! We would also recommend visiting the enchanting Vatican gardens which are in stark contrast to the bustling streets of Rome.

- Berlin, Germany
If you’re a fan of arts, culture and great food, look no further than the capital of Germany, Berlin. Spring in Berlin means one thing above all; heading outdoors for some fresh air and adventure. Grunewald is Berlin’s largest forested area ideal for a day of hiking away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. If weather permits, go swimming in the clean waters of Schlachtensee or Wannsee, nearby fresh water lakes.
