Almost Easter Escapes

We all love a long weekend, which is the main reason why we're looking forward to Good Friday and four blissful work-free days. Understandably, this is usually a problematic time to get away with commitments and prices, so we've come up with some fab long-weekend escapes that are almost during Easter.

Head to Paphos, Cyprus in the Spring and be rewarded with the start of it's beautiful weather, before the sun becomes its harshest. Discover some of the 27 beaches that line the area's expansive coast, each offering enviable conditions for sunbathing and superb water quality, perfect for swimming, diving or snorkeling year-round.

Of course, there's more to the area than that. Paphos has a rich, long-running history which is proudly displayed for all visitors to learn of themselves. With a wealth of treasures and monuments, tourists can unravel the city's timeline from the Stone Age, the Roman Times and Byzantium through to the modern day. Be it at the Ancient City of Marion, or Paphos' Medieval Castle, there's historical significances to be found on almost every corner.

As you'd expect, there are activities aplenty on such a sun-kissed island and these range from adrenaline fuelled adventures (such as mountain biking) to the wonderfully tranquil (birdwatching and floral discovery). You'll find that regardless of your choice of pastime, the beauty of the region will unfold before you and whether that's through an adventurous hike or a pleasant round of golf, doesn't matter.

See the best on offer in Paphos with 20% off a 5 night stay at Anassa.

Take a trip back in time and take in the delights of Dubrovnik on the most memorable of city breaks. Arrive in the Old Town and wander through the streets lined with the red buildings and medieval walls that make this city so famous (well, that and Game of Thrones). More than just a living gallery of architecture, the city boasts stunning views from its walls, especially as the sun sinks into the horizon.

Climb to new heights with a trip up the city's Cable Car for a new perspective on the city and its surrounds or, for a more adventurous time, take the ferry from the Old Harbour to the verdant Lokrum Island. Forested and peaceful, the island is a delightful spot to lose yourself for a day. Enjoy the refreshing waters on the rocky beaches, visit the breathtaking botanical garden and marvel in the medieval Benedictine Monastery before heading back.

A visit to the city of Berlin can bring about a whole smorgasbord of experiences. You could spend hours relishing the engaging culture of the place, sampling the local beer and trying the ever-enticing cuisine. You could lose yourself for the whole weekend, seeking out as many landmarks as possible. Or you could simply shop til you drop, before taking in the nightlife in this bustling location.

Versatile until the end, Berlin is almost impossible to see in one visit alone. That is especially the case if you plan to see the Berlin Wall - still standing with glorious and meaningful works of art on both sides. Whilst here, you'll also see one of the last remaining watchtowers, overlooking no man's land throwing you back in time to a country divided. Of course if you really want to see all of Berlin, head to the top of the Berliner Fernsehturm, where you can cast your eyes across the entire city from over 200m in the air.

Spend a day on Museum Island for a culture overload, explore the charming streets by bike or simply try your hand at whatever happens to be round the next corner. The possibilities here are truly endless and are delightfully unpredictable, which is why any visit to Berlin should account for impulsive decisions and eureka moments.
