Escape the winter with these European destinations

With winter here, now is a great time to fly to warmer climates. Here are a few places in Europe you might want to explore.

Barcelona is one of Spain’s most popular destinations, being home to some of its most iconic attractions. The Sagrada Familia has been under construction for over a century and remains unfinished. The church is situated in the Eixample district beside the old city and is renowned for its unique architecture. Or head over to the Camp Nou and cheer for FC Barcelona, one of the most successful football clubs in all of Europe. Barcelona also boasts its cuisine, from traditional Spanish dishes to unique Catalan meals.

The Italian island of Sardinia is one of the country’s hidden gems. While many are attracted by the lure of Milan, Turin, Venice, and Rome, they often overlook Sardinia. First there’s food, something that in Italy is an art form. Sardinia is known for its fresh seafood, as well as, like the rest of the country, pasta dishes and cheeses. There are also many vineyards there, so you can sample some of the local wines. You can explore the beaches, either on foot or by taking a boat around the island. Or you can go hiking in one of its many trails.

And finally, there’s Zagreb, the Croatian capital city. The upper town, Gornji Grad, the historic centre of the city is a great place to start your visit. Here, you can see the Cathedral of Zagreb, the Lotrščak Tower, and the St. Mark’s Church, as well as wander through the charming streets and admire the architecture. Be sure to go shopping at Dolac Market Dolac Market is a great place to buy fresh produce, souvenirs, and other items. It’s a bustling market with a lot of character.

As the days get colder, a holiday to Southern Europe seems more tempting than ever. Or head in the opposite direction to guarantee a white Christmas.
