European Holiday Destinations:

Create memories in Croatia

Think winding cobbled lanes and architecture that could tell a million tales, you’ve landed in Dubrovnik. A city that boasts historic charm with a modern twist is well worth a visit. Take a stroll down its pebbled beaches, or skim its seas with water sports by day, then twist your way through its streets soaking up the spectacular architecture as the sunsets. Dubrovnik isn’t short of things to see and do, plus it has lots of bars and restaurants to pick from too. The perfect last-minute destination!

Say Hola to the Spanish sun

Feel the sand between your toes and the sun beating on your back with a trip to Tenerife. Choose to get lost in the greenery and leafy walks available in the top half of the island, or head towards the buzz of the island further south. Playa de la Arena is a sun-drenched spot that has the beach activities, bars, and restaurants you’d expect, but offers traditional Spanish charm too. Sunglasses: on; world: out.

Marvel at the history of Malta

Malta is definitely an underdog for last-minute holidays, but book a flight to Valletta and you won’t want to board the flight back home. Postcard perfect, it also has amazing architecture by the plenty. Enjoy a glass of wine, and sample some of the Mediterranean Sea’s best offerings, then stroll along the water with a gelato in hand. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Take pretty pictures in Poland

Fancying something a little different, then venture to Krakow for a slightly more unconventional last-minute holiday. Dense with history, there is so much to learn about and explore. Take a tour of the Wieliczka Salt Mine, or climb the tower of St Mary’s Basilica where you can marvel at the city from up above. So, if you want to holiday in a city with tradition and history by the bucket load, Krakow is the perfect last-minute holiday location.

See the sunset in Santorini

White-washed buildings and blue skies are the holiday dream, so add some gorgeous scenery and scrumptious delicacies and you’ve got Santorini. The untouched streets of Megalochori won’t fail to impress, where you can enjoy a glass of wine in its traditional square. Or journey to Imerovigli, renowned for its sunset viewing points, the town is based on a cliff and is the idyllic spot to escape from all your troubles.

Booking last-minute holidays might leave you in a bit of a panic, but in these locations, you are sure to be glad you left it so late. Europe is calling and it sounds pretty perfect!
