European City Trip

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

May 2017 is a month full of long weekends, and it makes us happy! The opportunity to organize a short trip to discover a European capital. Discover our selection of the most beautiful cities to visit for a sunny May, rich in discoveries.

 Barcelona - Spain

 

A few hours of flight, go to Barcelona to enjoy the constant holidays glow that reigns there. The call of idleness on the beach, culture in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, art in the playful houses of Gaudi, gastronomy over delicious tapas and finally the call of parties when the sun goes down , that is Barcelona! During these few days, enjoy an exhilarating cultural diversity, street shows, welcoming parks and gardens but also the Catalan sweetness to live.

 

 
 
 

 

Rome - Italy 

 

Capital of Italy, Rome is an open-air museum. Rich in history, the city is full of real architectural treasures: temples, ancient amphitheatres, Renaissance palaces, Roman churches, you're going to be totally amazed! At every corner, the greatness and the beauty of its heritage will surprise you: back to Ancient Rome visiting the Coliseum, make a vow by throwing a piece in the Trevi Fountain, meet spirituality in Vatican City, all under a sunny sky driving a red vespa. Cultural paradise but also gastronomic one, the menu: pizza, pasta, and tiramisu ... enough to succumb!

 

 
 
 

 

Lisbon - Portugal

 

 Destination more and more popular, this capital never ceases to amaze its visitors. From the recent Vasco de Gama tower to the famous tower of Belém, this town crosses time with admirable harmony. Lisbon is a surprising city in which you enjoy to get lost, walking in its narrow streets or on board its yellow tram so typical. Warm, colorful, and heady, Lisa - as its inhabitants call it - is home to enchanting palaces, monasteries and contemporary art galleries. During these few days, do it like a Portuguese, let yourself be carried away during parties on Santa Catarina street, taste pasteis and all kinds of fresh fish.

 

 
 
 

 

Budapest - Hungary 

 

Budapest is a city with two faces. On one side or the other of the Chain Bridge, you will enjoy two different  atmospheres. "Buda", the right bank of the river, is the old aristocratic district where you can visit the huge Castle Hill overlooking the Danube. The atmosphere is calm and bucolic. "Pest", left bank, is the hustling part of the city, welcoming and dynamic here you will find impressive administrative monuments, museums, trendy and atypical bars and restaurants. On one side or the other you will fall under the particular charm of cities of Eastern Europe, obviously not forgetting to appreciate the heat of their famous thermal baths.
