Monday January 20th
Fly with Ryanair from London Stansted to Barcelona – £20
Known for its art culture, and Gaudi’s famous eclectic architecture, Barcelona has become one of the most beautiful and most visited cities in the world. If you’re a fan of Gaudi’s work, a visit to Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia is essential. The famous tree-lined boulevard of Las Ramblas boasts a wonderful collection of street artists and performers and holds one of Europe’s largest and most famous food markets in Europe – La Boqueria. After gorging on fresh juices and chorizo on a stick(!) from the market, you might want to walk off the food and see the rest of the city by going on a walking tour. Sandemans provide free walking tours and their friendly self-employed guides mix history and story-telling in the best way, keeping you thoroughly entertained.
Thursday January 23rd
Fly with Ryanair from Barcelona to Milan – £15
Milan has always been known as the fashion capital of the world and you can certainly tell as you walk amongst some of the most best dressed people in the world. But if fashion doesn’t take your fancy, Milan also boasts wonderful architecture and history, holding the fifth largest cathedral in the world – the magnificent Duomo de Milano. Pay a mere five euros to climb to the roof in order to see some stunning views of the city.
Saturday January 25th
Fly with Ryanair from Milan to Stockholm – £23
When you touch down at Stockholm Skavsta airport, simply jump aboard the Flygbussarna shuttle bus which will drop you in central Stockholm.
As soon as you arrive in the capital you can start to explore the biggest – and perhaps most exciting – city in Scandinavia. If you’re new to the city we would recommend going on one of Stockholm’s many free walking tours to learn about the city before indulging in some Swedish cuisine at the rooftop cafe at the Ahlens department store – hint: the meatballs are truly awesome.
