sorrento, italy:

Located to the south of Naples and lying in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Sorrento is a great base for any holiday whether you’re travelling as a couple or as a family. This resort still retains it’s traditional charm and many of the local hotels still remain family run. Excursions from Sorrento include tours of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, giving you the chance to explore the remarkably preserved town that was buried in 79 A.D.

Naples is the closest airport, an hours drive north of Sorrento. Many airlines fly into Naples International from the UK, but the cheapest flights we have found for June are departing London Gatwick with Norwegian. 7 days return will cost just £59 per person. Flights can be booked through SkyScanner.

almeria, spain:

This particular Spanish town might not be as popular as others, but that certainly doesn’t mean it isn’t as charming. A city steeped in history, and home to the stunning Alcazaba, an ancient Muslim built fortress similar to the Alhambra in nearby Granada. If you move out of the city, you will find unspoilt beaches and coves that offer peace and tranquillity.

Thomas Cook Airlines fly direct into Almeria from a number of airports, with Birmingham being one of these. A one way economy ticket will cost £39 per person. With the successful launch of Economy Plus on short haul flights, why not treat yourself to an upgrade? Book through Thomas Cook Airlines here.

gibraltar:

Often described as Britain in the sun, Gibraltar sits on the southern tip of Spain but still manages to keep it’s unique British charm. The Iconic rock offers extraordinary 360° views, including Africa on a clear day, for anyone that ventures to the top. With the WW2 era tunnels that run deep into the rock open for public exhibition and dolphin cruises available from the marina; you will struggle to find so much to do in such a small space anywhere else in the world!

Flights from the UK are now only provided by two airlines, one of which being easyJet. Bristol to Gibraltar one way will cost £58 per person. With 10kgs hand luggage allowed, there’s certainly no need to pay the sometimes extortionate checked baggage costs. Compare travel dates and book through Kayak.

thessaloniki, greece:

Did you know that Thessaloniki is Greece’s second most populated city? Often described as a cultural melting pot, this northern Greek city attracts history buffs from all over Europe. Once occupied by the Romans, Byzantines and the Ottomans, there is much to see and explore in this diverse city. When the sun goes down, seafront bars and restaurants become a hive of activity, selling both traditional and modern contemporary dishes.

Thessaloniki Promenade

Recently re branded TUI will fly you from Newcastle to Thessaloniki for a 7 night stay. A return ticket will cost just £89 per person. With such an interesting and alternative destination compared to most, you would be foolish not to be tempted. Flights can be booked through the TUI website.
