Have you ever flown Vueling before? If you have, you no doubt know that they strive both in low cost prices and exceptional in-flight magazines (the first taking precedence over the second of course). From London, Vueling flies to three Spanish cities which means there are three great low cost weekend ideas, right at your fingertips.
London – La Coruña
As the wealthiest city in Galicia, you might be surprised at its homey and small-city feel. Its port dates back 2000 years and the world’s second largest textile company has set up shop in this buzzing city as well. La Coruña has more to offer than most think. Grab some incomparable views of the city and coast by climbing the Tower or Hercules. The Monte de San Pedro used to be a powerful fort (which once protected the city against the British) but is now a historical park with pretty gardens, perfect on a warm afternoon.
- Fly London – La Coruña for £121 (all taxes incl) for travel Jan14-Jan17
London – Bilbao
Home of the Spanish Guggenheim, fine restaurants and a thrilling night life… Bilbao has grown up a lot since its industrial days when it was nicknamed “the orifice.” Split in two by the Ría de Bilbao, this city has a lot to reckon with in terms of art (Guggenheim and Bilbao Fine Arts Museum), design (Zubi Zuri Bridge) and discovery (Casco Viejo). A weekend should suit just fine.
- Fly London – Bilbao for £65 (all taxes incl) for travel Nov26-Nov29
London – Sevilla
Spain’s southern province of Andalusia is a world or its own. Romantic patios, orange trees and breathe-taking architecture left over from the Moors, Christians, Arabs and others. This land was defended and conquered so many times for its resources and of course its beauty. Sevilla has some of the best flamenco in the country, not complete without a taste of some deep red Spanish wines.
- Fly London – Sevilla for £81 (all taxes incl) for travel Dec1-Dec6
Don’t forget to grab a copy of “Ling” magazine while you’re on-board, it comes highly recommended! Where are you heading for Christmas holidays? Whether you’re soaking in Christmas markets, basking in Spanish sun or skiing in Canada, tell us about your trips!
