Fridays are great, it’s the end of the work week and time to relax and I can’t think of any better way to celebrate the beginning of the weekend than with a few hot travel deals that are definitely worth grabbing! Fly from London to Glasgow, Berlin, Dublin or Rome for less than £50.
Scotland’s second largest city rivals the capital as the most cosmopolitan and the best tourist destination in the country. Cleaning up its reputation from the early 20th century, Glasgow shines like a polished diamond. Visit the Kelingrove Art Gallery and Museum, visit a building designed by Charles Rennie Machintosh and dive into any of Glasgow’s trendy nightclubs and meet some locals.
Rent a bicycle and discover Germany’s capital on two wheels. Berlin is hardly recognizable since the Iron Curtain days. Trace the steps of history by visiting the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, the Holocaust Memorial and Checkpoint Charlie. Not only is Berlin one of Europe’s most affordable capitals, but its one of the most popular, especially among artists and backpackers.
Home to Guinness, James Joyce and The Cranberries, Dublin has a lot going for it, including one of the best cities in Europe. Admire the city’s Georgian architecture, take a tour of it’s famous brewery, learn a folk dance and visit the library at Trinity College. These are all essential Dublin experiences but none is more Irish than hanging out at the pub and enjoying a pint of a local brew.
The Pantheon, Vatican, Colosseum and Trevi Fountain are just the beginning to discovering Rome. Sip a latte in front of centuries-old architecture, shop for shoes at any of the many designer shops, explore San Lorenzo like a local, swoon over your sweetheart in this Eternal City. Is there any better place to spend a holiday or a weekend getaway at this price?
