1. Pisa, Italy "Tuscan tour for 12 hours, visiting Siena, a vineyard in Chianti..."

Lastminute.com reviewer Warren shares, "The weather was fair for the time of year, between 12- 16 degrees, it did rain lightly for half a day but it did not stop us doing what we wanted to. We stayed in Florence, ate some fantastic food and went on a fabulous Tuscan tour for 12 hours, visiting Siena, a vineyard in Chianti where we did wine tasting and the beautiful sights in San Gimignano. Wonderful long weekender would defiantly go back."

2. Bordeaux, France "[A]rchitecture was good, vineyards were fun."

Lastminute.com reviewer James says, "Weather was lovely, the wine was great, architecture was good, vineyards were fun. Cite du vins was a huge disappointment, I'd skip it, bar opposite the tourist office was really good and cheap. St Emilion was very pretty."

3. Frankfurt, Germany "[C]ombined with a vineyard tour around Wiesbaden is a nice weekend."

Lastminute.com reviewer Cheryl adds, "Places you saw: Romer area, river/museum areas have a vibe. Learn from experience: Frankfurt is good to explore for one day, but combined with a vineyard tour around Wiesbaden is a nice weekend. Easy to get the train from the airport to central Frankfurt for about £5. The area around the Frankfurt am Main station is run-down but with a few minutes walk, you can be into central Frankfurt for the vibe or up by the quiet hotels near the Frankfurt Messe area. I highly recommend taking the trams anywhere. Buy an all-day ticket at any tram kiosk, again for about £5. Hop on/hop off. Great detailed maps at most of the tram stop. This was my favourite way to explore the city. If the scenery died out and got boring, I just hopped off, crossed the rails and took the next tram back in to central. Like most in the trip: The first day best was walking from the Romer tram stop to Paulsplatz and finishing at Hauptwauche. Lots of shops, food and scenery. The second day was taking a train to Wiesbaden for a morning stroll amongst the beautiful buildings, then taking a 15-minute train from there to the small hamlet Walluf on the Rhine River for a 1-hour stroll and buying wine directly from the merchants."

4. Lanzarote, Spain "[V]olcanic areas (Timanfaya), the green lagoon (El Golfo) and the non-traditional vineyards - well worth it."

Lastminute.com reviewer Henry says, "Weather was good, around 25 degrees with a slight breeze. Booked a hotel affiliated tour of the south of the island including volcanic areas (Timanfaya), the green lagoon (El Golfo) and the non-traditional vineyards - well worth it."

5. Barcelona, Spain "[M]onastery at Montserrat and local vineyard which was excellent."

Lastminute.com reviewer Katharidb shares, "Barcelona was fantastic, late October and mid 20C temperatures and blue skies. We spent one day walking the gothic part of the city and visiting Sagrada Familia. We took a tour out of Barcelona on the second day to the monastery at Montserrat and local vineyard which was excellent. The last day we visited the Olympic park, the Montjuic castle and took the Transbordador Aeri del Port cable car from there to the beach area. So in three days, we saw many different aspects of a great city. On top of that, the food and drink were excellent, we ate in four very different tapas restaurants and prices were all reasonable. Transportation was also easy and cheap. Our hotel, Vincci Gala, was well-positioned, comfortable and quiet. We would highly recommend Barcelona for an autumn break."
