You needn’t bother with the bucket n’ spade beaches either – check out the historic city of Gerona where you can put your face up to the sun while dining al fresco on fresh seafood, although it’s probably best to book ahead for El Celler de Can Roca, officially the world’s second-best restaurant.4. Berlin from £28By all means do some sightseeing; you’re on a city break after all and Berlin does have a quite few attractions, but if you’re there for the city’s after dark pleasures, come nightfall, line your stomach with spätzle and hit Mitte for a Warsteiner or five. If you’re still standing, dance on at one of Berlin’s many ultra-cool nightspots, like What?! – found in an unlikely location (a shopping centre) near Alexanderplatz.5. Eindhoven, Netherlands from £28Forget Amsterdam. The new cool Dutch kid on the block is the futuristic city of Eindhoven. Well, that may be exaggerating things slightly, but flights are cheap so you’ll have a few quid spare in your budget for getting on the Stratumseind. No, that’s not Dutch for drunk, although you probably will be after a visit to the street with the most bars in the Netherlands. With over 40 pubs to pop into for a quick one, stamina is required. Don’t forget about your flight home!6. Pula, Croatia from £30Croatia for £30? Pula the other one! Once you have re-enacted scenes from Gladiator in Pula Arena – one of the largest surviving Roman arenas in the world, sample some Istrian cuisine like calamari, spicy meatballs and prosciutto ravioli (umm, how long ‘til dinner?). Jump on a bus to the beaches of the Verudela Peninsula where it’s best to jog up and down the beach to earn yourself another night on the meatballs.7. Strasbourg, France from £30Being the home of the European Parliament probably isn’t a massive draw, but if you aren’t on a tour of political administrative centres, Strasbourg’s nightlife might appeal. A big student population means there are loads of pubs – head to the historic Grande Île for all manner of drinking establishments. Check out the selection of ales at the brilliantly-named Académie de la Bière, where you also try local speciality Flammkuchen (flame cake).ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedFive flights for £50 or less: super second citiesFive flights for £50 or less: super second citiesThe £104 Weekend – ideas for getawaysPeople always use round numbers but at Skyscanner we like to do things differently.8 cheap half term holiday flights for less than £50School’s out, so head off to one of these fun European cities for less than fifty quid! What are doing for the weekend? Quiet pint down your local? Saturday down the shops? NO! Live to a different beat: book yourself a city break to one of these cool European cities.1. Milan, Italy from £18In the Sixties they had free love; in Milan they have free food. It is Milanese custom for bars to lay on a smorgasbord of snacks totally gratuito at aperitivo time. All you need to do is buy a drink, and get in there, while remaining cool in that stereotypically Italian way. Keep your Armani shades on while you scoff.2. Wroclaw, Poland from £23The capital of Lower Silesia boasts 130 bridges, but if that’s not enough to tempt you to Poland’s fourth-biggest city, maybe Wroclaw’s reputation for having the best nightlife in the country will. Unlike Krakow, here the bar flies are more student than stag, more local than lager lout. If the vodka has gone to your feet, dance under the watchful eye of Mr Lenin at Communist-themed bar PRL.last_img
