Four Inspirational Holiday Destinations To Book For 2023
January is traditionally the time of year when we book the most holidays, as the short days and gloomy weather turns our thoughts to the sunnier seasons and fun trips out. This year is expected to be busier than ever, as there are almost no travel restrictions in place in the UK and beyond for the first time in three years.
If you are looking for some inspiration for your holiday destination this year, here are a few tempting ideas.
Many of us have limited our holiday destinations to the UK for the past few years, and we may be out of the habit of making lengthy trips abroad. However, Paris is the perfect destination if you want a taste of fresh culture without the long haul travel. With luxury coach hire, it’s a short and easy hop through the channel tunnel to the French capital.
You can even make a day excursion from the UK with a well planned itinerary. Paris needs no introduction, with its wealth of famous landmarks and culture. Take a trip to the top of the Eiffel tower or down the River Seine, or simply enjoy some first class French cuisine.
Culture lovers will no doubt want to pay a visit to the world renowned Louvre gallery, home to Leondardo de Vivnci’s Mona Lisa, as well as hundreds of other masterpieces.
For a slightly longer break, Barcelona makes for the perfect European destination. This beautiful city is celebrated for its stunning architecture. Condé Nast recommends visiting the famous Sagrada Familia at night, when there are fewer queues and crowds. The never ending construction of Antoni Gaudi’s famous church is a sight to behold.
Other well must-see examples of Guadi’s work include the Casa Batlló, and La Pedrera. There are often live music events in the evening, and guided tours are available. The city also offers fine examples of gothic and modernist architecture, and much else besides.
Lake Garda in northern Italy is celebrated for its beautiful panoramic views, Roman remains, and mild climate. It is the perfect place for outdoor activities, with a wealth of walks, water sports, rock climbing and horseback riding opportunities, to name a few. It’s also a great choice for connoisseurs of good food and wine, with an abundance of local produce.
For a hassle free holiday, you could consider booking a coach tour that will take in other famous Italian destinations, including Venice and Verona.
Let’s not forget London as a perfect weekend destination. The capital city is the perfect place for those who love to shop, with Oxford Street packed with all the big high street names, and Bond Street bursting at the seams with designer labels. For some more offbeat independent shops as well as a great choice of nightlife, a visit to the famous Soho district is a must.
While in town, it would be a shame not to catch one of the famous West End musicals featuring world class performers.
