9 city breaks to experience in summer 2020

Vienna

 

Explore Austria’s spectacular capital city Vienna this summer - renowned for its architecture and its history.

 

It’s a city easily manageable by foot and public transportation, where you can get lost in the Hofburg and marvel at the  splendours of the former imperial palace of the Habsburgs.

 

Go from one museum to another, or just stroll through the city to discover the magnificent architecture all around. Scratch beneath the surface and you’ll also find an exciting social scene, particularly in summer when outdoor bars and food stalls spring up across the city. At night, let yourself be caught up by the atmosphere of one of these bars or attend an opera or classical music concert.

Naples

 

Naples is a truly unique Italian destination. Temperatures rocket to 30 degrees during the summer and, while it is a great location to pick up a nice tan, there’s so much more going on than just the nice weather.

See unique ancient ruins by day and feast on the finest, most authentic pizza anywhere in the world by night. The saying goes that Rome is Italy’s heart, but Naples is the country’s soul.
