Porto is fast becoming a must-visit destination. Not only does the city offer a variety of beaches to explore when you want to take it easy but it also has plenty to see and do.

Famous for its bridges, a trip along the river is a must-do if you want to make the most out of your visit!
2. Salzburg, Austria
Salzburg is the perfect destination if you fancy a winter or Christmas mini-break. Naturally, a Christmas market is a definite must-do if you want to get into the Christmas spirit. The city opens an ice-rink in Mozart Square in the winter months if you fancy taking on the ice! If music is your thing then a visit Mozart's birthplace is essential. If musicals are more your thing then take the time to visit some of The Sound of Music sets scattered across the city.
3. Galway, Ireland
Set to be the European City of Culture in 2020 places Galway firmly on the places to visit in the next year. If you fancy a blustering walk on the beach or want to experience true Irish pub culture then Galway is the place for you.

4. Ljubljana, Slovenia
Slovenia's capital is bustling with university students and green spaces and parks. Taking a trip to the market and exploring or wandering for hours in the Tivoli Park are ways to relax and still take in what the city has to offer.
