Cool Summer Destinations
Want to get away this summer but don't know where? Take some inspiration from our top picks this season.
Costa Brava, Spain
The beautiful beaches and stretches of coastline make the Costa Brava an ideal Summer holiday destination. Whether you want to take it easy on some of the finest beaches in Europe, or visit quaint little towns such as Begur, there is something for everyone. Salvador Dalí even had a home here in Cadaqués, so if you’re looking for something a little more cultural, you’re in luck!
Amalfi Coast, Italy
The Amalfi Coast is popular with many celebrities including George Clooney, and there really is little wonder why. It is quite simply one of the most beautiful places to visit. Amalfi and Ravello are just some of the beautiful gems that adorn this coastline, and make great places to visit. With a wide variety of restaurants, shops, beaches and cultural hotspots, it makes a great getaway for when you need to relax and enjoy some delicious Italian food!
If you are after more of a city break instead of relaxing on the beach, then why not visit Lisbon? The city is bathed in sunshine during the Summer months and there is more to do than simply shop and eat delicious Portuguese food (although we have to admit, that sounds pretty perfect). If you head over to the Baixa District, you will find yourself with an array of gorgeous buildings and architectural sites.
This little coastal town is actually a fishing port, and steeped in local history. There are plenty of attractions to see while you're there, including the Church of St. Euphemia, the Old Town and even an aquarium full of flora and fauna for the little ones. It's such a beautiful place to visit in the summer months thanks to its gorgeous buildings and perfect views. It has a wide array of restaurants and galleries, and of course a lovely beach to spend lazy summer days relaxing.
If the refreshing scent of Sicilian Lemon Trees isn't enough to lure you into this magical summer destination, then the gorgeous surroundings will. Sicily is one of those islands that will recapture your heart time and time again. There are beautifully exciting Palermo markets, delicious Italian food and beaches to marvel at. Essentially, it really is the most perfect summer destination.
