We're All Going on (an Alternative) Summer Holiday!

We all know what the stereotypical summer holiday entails. Sun, sand and sea are the key ingredients in most cases. The thing is, these holidays can often come with their problems too. Overcrowding, repetition and all those annoying kids running around the pool (it won't have Cliff Richard either!). Keep yourself on your toes and change it up a little this summer with an alternative summer holiday like one of these.

Getting active and cultural tours are two things often very low down a holidaymaker's list of priorities in the summer, though it can actually be the best time to do both. For a steady balance of the two, plus oodles of freedom on your holiday, look no further than a city break in Europe. Many up-and-coming cities in Eastern Europe and on the Baltic are well worth a visit and will provide you with equally good weather.
Budapest

Budapest, Prague and Dubrovnik all provide visitors with excellent options during their stay and will reward those who explore by foot by revealing their hidden gems to them, often in the form of delightful local restaurants. There's so much to discover about these cities that you can do at your own leisure, but what you might be most surprised to learn is the price tag attributed to them. Spend 3 nights in Budapest from £315pp here.
Sorrento

Shopping also shouldn't be discounted (except in terms of price) when considering your summer break, but again, strolls around the shops in the sunshine doesn't immediately come to mind for when June comes. As ever, Italy is a shopper's paradise but forget the hefty costs of Milan and head to gorgeous Sorrento, for a cheaper, more enjoyable shopping experience. Otherwise, Spain is your best bet, with Madrid offering the best range of choice for those in need of some retail therapy. Shop til you drop with 4 nights in Madrid from £325pp here
Mt Teida

Alternatively, just take advantage of the best offer you can find and let that decide for you. Head to The Ritz Carlton Abama in Tenerife and make the most of a 10% saving plus one night completely free! Perfectly situated to let you explore the stunning architecture of the city, enjoy a few rounds of golf or explore the majestic Mount Teide (Spain's highest peak!).

Don't do the expected this summer, come on, live a little!
